The actress, who played Laurel Lance on the CW show for four seasons, will be coming back as Black Siren…and there was another possibility that she could’ve ended up on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, too.
“That was something we had talked about,” EP Marc Guggenheim shared. “For us, the whole conversation about bringing Katie back as a series regular on Arrow began with her performance in the midseason premiere.”
He adds, “We briefly spoke about bringing her on Legends, but I think from a story perspective we would get far more mileage out of her interacting with the cast of Arrow.”
Katie is pictured below arriving at the airport in Vancouver.
