Now, though, the TV-turned-movie star is turning back to TV again, as he’s returning to Arrow this season for new episodes!

Haynes’ character, Roy Harper (AKA Arsenal), faked his own death in prison last season as the impetus to free Haynes initially, but now it looks like the show’s writers are going to have to fit Harper back in the plot line!

Arrow‘s executive producer Marc Guggenheim confirmed the news, describing Haynes’ exit and why producers made this choice now:

“It was always our intention to have him return following his departure last season, but it was a matter of finding the right story line to pull it off. That opportunity presented itself in episode 412 and we can’t wait for the fans to see this reunion.”

Haynes himself was pretty stoked about a return to the TV hit, too (below):
