Echo Kellum Reveals Why He's Leaving 'Arrow' & If He'll Return Someday

Last night’s episode of Arrow came with a series regular leaving the show – Echo Kellum.

The actor, who starred as Curtis, aka Mr. Terrific, opened up about why he was leaving the series after three seasons: “I had a conversation with [then-showrunner] Marc Guggenheim in season 6. It was my idea. I have kids — I have a 12-year-old — and it was just starting to feel like I should be back home more.”

Echo added that this isn’t the last you’ll see of Curtis, but he doesn’t know when he’ll be back.

“We’ve had some discussions,” he adds while talking with EW. “Nothing’s been finalized at this point, but we’ve definitely discussed that aspect and they definitely made sure and clear that they want Curtis to come back. I can’t give you any definitive episodes or storylines, but it’s definitely something I’m 100-percent open to doing, and I believe they’re open to doing it too, so it should definitely work out at some point in the future.”

Echo also revealed what he’ll miss most about playing Curtis week after week.

“I just like his charm. He’s so silly and he brings a lot of levity to a lot of the darkness that the show can permeate. I’m gonna miss that about him — that he just has a great outlook on life, like his positivity,” he says.

Aww, we’ll miss you Echo!
