Katie Cassidy Returning to Arrow in Season Regular Role

If you’ve been watching the CW’s Arrow, you’ll know the story of Laurel Lance, better known as the Black Canary, namely her current status on the show.  While actress Katie Cassidy hasn’t been seen on the drama for some time, that’s about to change.

Warner Bros. Television just announced that Cassidy will return to Arrow as the Black Siren for episodes #522 and #523 this season, and return as that character as a series regular for Season Six.

That’s right kitties, the original Laurel Lance is still **spoiler alert** dead.  But something good could still come from this: give the Siren’s fashion sense, we may see a Black Canary with more fishnets.

Arrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim says, “One of the things that most excites us about Arrow is that we go where the story takes us.  Last year, the story took us to the tragic death of Laurel Lance.  This year, our midseason finale reintroduced us to Laurel’s doppelgänger, Black Siren.  We were so taken by Katie’s fearless interpretation of this character that we knew her story was not yet finished.  We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Katie back to Arrow as Black Siren, though as her appearances on Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow this season show, she never really left the family.”
