With season five of Arrow just around the corner, we’re dying to know if Colton Haynes‘ Roy may pop back up in Star City.
Sadly, showrunner Wendy Mericle says that there aren’t plans for him to return – yet.
“We would have Roy back in a heartbeat,” she told TVLine.com. “If the right circumstances come up and the right storyline presents itself, absolutely.”
Colton is currently filming a guest spot on the hit Fox series Scream Queens.
Don’t forget – Arrow premieres on Wednesday, October 5 on The CW.
Check out this new scoop on the upcoming fifth season of Arrow!
It sounds like Oliver (Stephen Amell) will be dealing with his past a lot.
“[Season 5] deals with legacy, it deals with the past, and the dramatic irony, the dramatic tension, that we get from it is Oliver’s always been a guy — admittedly, not the most self aware dude ever — but he’s always been someone who is trying to move forward. He’s always trying to evolve,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim told IGN.com. “The challenge for Oliver this year is how do you evolve and move forward when the past keeps grabbing at you, trying to pull you back.”
On where Oliver and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) stand, he said, “We always play the true five month gap between the season finale and season premiere. And every time we’ve talked about Oliver and Felicity should talk about their feelings, we realized, wow, that feels really wrong because they’ve had five months to talk about their feelings. Any mature couple, they’ve had that conversation.”
Arrow is set to return on October 5.
Big things are happening on the new seasons of Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl — including one major character coming out.
“It is a significant character,” Greg Berlanti shared from the 2016 Summer TCA Tour panel on Thursday (August 11) in Beverly Hills, Calif. “We’re not trying to be coy about it. The only reason we [don't want to say who] is we really want the audience to enjoy the character development and not necessarily be ahead of the storyline.”
He added later on to a small group of reporters, “I think it’s important that people know we want to include a character who happens to be gay in the show. We had a character who we discussed that as a possibility last year internally, and it didn’t materialize. We didn’t get to the story. We just didn’t have enough real estate to deal with it in the way that we wanted to deal with it. So this year, when we were planning this season, we said to the network and studio that it was a priority for us. And everyone was cool with it.”
Greg also touched on the four-way crossover that will happen between the shows: “We’ve just started last week. I’ve mentioned that it’ll be one unified threat. We haven’t done a global threat yet on the show. So, that’s new.”

Katie Cassidy is sticking around The CW for a while.
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.”
Katie is the third actor to ink this kind of deal with The CW, following John Barrowman and Wentworth Miller.
