The 29-year-old actress, who was killed off Arrow last season, just inked a deal as a series regular across the network, which will likely include appearances in The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and of course, Arrow.
If you remember, Katie popped up on The Flash after her Arrow departure as Laurel Lance’s Earth-Two doppelganger, Black Siren.
“It’s something that’s going to have a lasting impact not just in our season premiere, but over the next couple seasons of the show,” Stephen Amell told TVLine.com about Katie‘s appearance in the season five premiere. “It’s very important. It’s going to be critical to whatever the legacy of our show is.”
Via Deadline, Josh will star as Adrian Chase, Star City’s new district attorney in season five of the hit CW series.
Adrian Chase is described as an ally of Mayor Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), who aims to clean up the streets through the legal system.
In the comic world, Adrian Chase, and his alter ego the Vigilante, first appeared in the 1983 New Teen Titans Annual #2. He’s a New York City district attorney whose family was killed by mobsters, and sought justice in his own way.
Recurring cast member Echo Kellum is also being promoted to series regular.
