A bit of breaking Arrow news for you to brighten up your Monday. It is a spoiler. So, if you’d rather maintain the element of surprise, look away now…
Katie Cassidy will return to Arrow in season 6 as a series regular. No, there’s not going to be a miraculous resurrection for Laurel Lance, instead Cassidy will continue portraying Black Siren. She’s also set to appear in episodes 22 and 23 of this season.
On Cassidy’s return, Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim said: “One of the things that most excites us about Arrow is that we go where the story takes us. Last year, the story took us to the tragic death of Laurel Lance. This year, our midseason finale reintroduced us to Laurel’s doppelgänger, Black Siren. We were so taken by Katie’s fearless interpretation of this character that we knew her story was not yet finished. We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Katie back to Arrow as Black Siren, though as her appearances on Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow this season show, she never really left the family.”
Is Cassidy’s return a good thing? What does this mean for Dinah Drake going forwards? Let us know your thoughts.
