Colton Haynes will reprise his role as Roy Harper in an upcoming Season 4 episode.
The actor tweeted the news of his return, expressing his excitement.
"We are beyond thrilled that Colton will be returning to Arrow this season," executive producer Marc Guggenheim says. "It was always our intention to have him return following his departure last season, but it was a matter of finding the right storyline to pull it off. That opportunity presented itself in Episode 412, and we can't wait for the fans to see this reunion."
Roy's story left off when he pretended to be The Arrow and then faked his death before leaving Starling. His ex-girlfriend Thea tracked him down with the hope of reuniting, but Roy encouraged her to find her own path and left his Arsenal getup behind as a parting gift.
Colton Haynes arrives at the premiere of Warner Bros. Pictures 'San Andreas' at TCL Chinese Theatre on May 26, 2015 in Hollywood, California.
Arrow Casts Everwood's Tom Amandes As DC Comics Villain The Calculator
Berlantiverse favorite Tom Amandes is heading to Arrow - to do a real "number" on someone.
The alum of such past Greg Berlanti projects as Everwood, Eli Stone and No Ordinary Family has booked an arc on (one of!) the prolific producer's CW series as DC Comics villain The Calculator.
A criminal mastermind and technical genius, The Calculator - aka Noah Kuttler - uses his advanced skills in computer science and internet manipulation to blackmail Roy (Colton Haynes) out of retirement to do his bidding, which leads to an epic battle with Team Arrow.
Amandes - whose most recent TV credits include Chicago Fire, Revenge, Parenthood and Scandal - is set to appear in two episodes, beginning with this season's 12th outing, "Unchained."
Arrow resumes Season 4 on Wednesday, Dec. 2, when it presents the back half of this season's #Flarrow crossover event.

'Arrow' Casts Vixen: Megalyn Echikunwoke To Play DC Comics Character
Team Arrow is expanding. DC Comics character Vixen (aka Mari Mable) will be joining the The CW's Arrow with Megalyn Echikunwoke in the role. Echikunwoke voiced the character in CW Seed's animated web series of the same name and now will appear as the character in Arrow.
Vixen, an African orphan who inherited the ability to mimic any animal, tangled with Green Arrow and the Flash, voiced by Arrow & Flash stars Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin in the animated series. It's not clear if that storyline will continue in the live action Arrow.
Echikunwoke also will be seen in Lifetime's upcoming straight-to-series drama Damien and she recurred recently on Fox's The Following. Other credits include ABC's Mind Games, Showtime's House Of Lies and feature A Good Day To Die Hard.

I do recall seeing Echikunwoke when she was a series regular on The 4400 as the mysterious Isabelle Tyler. No doubt about it she is a stunning girl.
I didn't recognize her. Thanks for mentioning Megalyn Echikunwoke played Isabelle Tyler, the daughter of Richard Tyler (played by Mahershala Ali) and Lily Moore (played by Laura Allen) in The 4400. I don't think Summer's and Megalyn's character met on the show but I'm not 100% sure.
"Arrow" actress Katie Cassidy is set to guest star in the second-to-last episode of the second season of The CW's "The Flash". Cassidy will play an Earth-2 version of Laurel Lance whose Black Canary goes by the name Black Siren.
That name is actually a character from the "Justice League" animated series that was based on the golden age version of Black Canary. The news was confirmed today by "Arrow" executive producer Marc Guggenheim.
At the same time reports that actor Echo Kellum and his Palmer Technologies character Curtis Holt is being upgraded to a series regular in the upcoming fifth season of the series.
Curtis' comic book counterpart becomes the superhero Mr. Terrific, but that storyline hasn't begun to play out at this point. The character, a tech genius and married gay man, became involved with Team Arrow in last week's episode, helping them out on a mission.
Are they setting Felicity to leave the show and Curtis take over?

'Arrow': Josh Segarra Cast As Star City's Newest Vigilante In Season 5 Regular Role
Oliver Queen is getting a new ally. The CW's Arrow has cast Josh Segarra (Chicago P.D.) as a new series regular for Season 5. He will play Adrian Chase, Star City's new district attorney and an ally of Mayor Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), who aims to clean up the streets through the legal system.
Adrian Chase and his alter ego the Vigilante first appeared in the 1983 New Teen Titans Annual #2. A New York City district attorney whose family was killed by mobsters, Chase sought justice in his own way. In the comics, Chase has strong ties to Deathstroke, who was a major character on Arrow.
Segarra is joining fellow new Arrow regular, Echo Kellum, who is being promoted from recurring. The show is beefing up its roster after recently bidding farewell to series regular Katie Cassidy.
Troubled teen Evelyn Sharp (Madison McLaughlin) will return to "Arrow" in Season 5, and after her brief stint behind Black Canary's mask last season, she's definitely been bitten by the vigilante bug. Evelyn was last seen in episode 419, "Canary Cry," when she impersonated the fallen Black Canary to seek revenge on Damien and Ruve' Darhk for the murder of her parents.
McLaughlin will be reprising her role as Evelyn for multiple episodes beginning in episode 502, and will be taking on a new DC Comics persona: Having tried to assume the mantle of Black Canary last season, Evelyn now aims to forge her own identity as the masked archer known as Artemis.
In the comics, Artemis was the daughter of villains Tigress and Sportsmaster, and a member of the Injustice Society, although the character was given a heroic twist in DC animated series "Young Justice," where she became Green Arrow's sidekick after Roy Harper left the group. Evelyn certainly demonstrated some less-than-heroic tendencies last season, but perhaps the example set by Oliver (Stephen Amell) and the rest of Team Arrow can help keep her on the right path.
"Arrow" Season 5 will premiere Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 8.p.m on The CW, leading into freshman drama "Frequency" at 9 p.m.
Arrow: Season 5 Casts The Walking Dead Alum Chad L. Coleman
Arrow is adding a familiar face to the cast in Season 5. The Walking Dead alum Chad L. Coleman has been cast in the recurring role of Tobias Church.
Tobias Church is described as "an imposing gangster looking to unite the various criminal enterprises in Star City under his own singular command." The villainous character will first be seen in Season 5's premiere.
Coleman is best known for playing Tyreese on The Walking Dead and for portraying Dennis "Cutty" Wise on The Wire. He recently appeared on Syfy's The Expanse as Col. Frederick Lucius Johnson and History's Roots as Mingo.
Meanwhile, Arrow's executive producers say Season 5's flashbacks will finally resolve some unanswered questions about Oliver's time in Russia and his Bratva tattoo.
