Over the past few months, there have been reports floating around that Colton Haynes, who portrays the character of Roy Harper on Arrow, would be back for multiple episodes of the show this season.
Additionally, series actress Willa Holland, who plays Oliver's kid sister and sidekick Thea Speedy Queen, also expressed her excitement at Haynes' return during a recent convention in London, England. Thus, many fans felt Roy's return was all but confirmed.
However, according to Arrow showrunner Wendy Mericle, that is not the case just yet.
Speaking with TV Line, Mericle said: “We would have Roy back in a heartbeat. If the right circumstances come up and the right storyline presents itself, absolutely.”
So, for the time being, it sounds as though Oliver's former sidekick won't be back serving up justice in Star City just yet. However, good things do tend to come to those who wait!
Arrow is currently filming its fifth season in Vancouver, Canada.
The hit DC Entertainment drama returns Wednesday, October 5th at 8pm.
