AceShowbiz - If Colton Haynes' new tweet is to be trusted, it seems fans will get to see one of the first members of Team Arrow returning in the upcoming season 6 of "Arrow". The "Teen Wolf" actor, whose last appearance on "Arrow" was in season 4, braces fans for the return of his character, Roy Harper.
A fan tweets, "Like I seriously miss Roy so much and I need him back soon okay? I miss seeing you in it." The actor surprisingly responds, "Roy's coming back very soon," sparking speculation that he is poised to make an appearance in the upcoming season 6 of The CW's series.
Roy's coming back very soon 🤗— Colton Haynes (@ColtonLHaynes) September 9, 2017
Roy Harper a.k.a. the red-hooded Arsenal was trained by Stephen Amell's Oliver Queen and soon he became the Emerald Archer's sidekick. Roy, however, later left, claiming to be The Arrow and faking his own death to protect Oliver. Roy has only been seen a handful of times since then, although he is mentioned frequently.
Of his departure from the series, Colton said to Entertainment Weekly, "I asked to step away because I cared more about my mental and physical health than my career at the time. I've had terminal anxiety my entire life. Physically ill, fainting. I'm 27 years old, and I have an ulcer. I had to step back."
While Roy's return hasn't been confirmed, fans will get to see fan-favorite villain Slade Wilson a.k.a. Deathstroke (Manu Bennett) when "Arrow" returns for season 6. Slade will be reuniting with one of his sons as "Lucifer" alum Liam Hall has been cast as Joe Wilson.
Joe "has followed in his father's footsteps by joining the secret Australian military agency, A.S.I.S. After years of brutal combat, Joe now finds himself in a remote Kasnian prison under the alias, Kane Wolfman, fighting for his life." Deathstroke is set to return in episode 5 of the upcoming season 5 titled "Deathstroke Returns".
"Arrow" returns for season 6 on Thursday, October 12 at 9 P.M. on The CW.
