Colton Haynes is slated to return to Arrow in an upcoming episode, EW has confirmed.

Haynes left the series last season after Roy Harper, a.k.a Arsenal, took the fall for being the Arrow and faked his own death in prison. Roy then left town, much to Thea’s (Willa Holland) dismay, though he left her with the parting gift of his super suit. Details on his return have not been released, but surely Roy will have something to say about Thea’s new bloodlust.

“We are beyond thrilled that Colton will be returning to Arrow this season,” says EP Marc Guggenheim. “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 first shared the news of his return on Twitter. “Just landed in Vancouver to… BEGIN FILMING ON ARROW AGAIN!!! So excited!!!”

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
