Laurel Lance fans – get ready for a big comeback. Lance suffered an untimely demise last season on Arrow but Katie Cassidy will be back. Oliver Queen will be her target.
Warner Brothers/DC Entertainment announced Cassidy will be back as the Black Siren on two episodes this season and becomes a series regular again for Season Six.
Black Siren is Lance’s Earth-2 counterpart seen earlier on Flash then Arrow. The evil mirror, mirror version of Lance will be screaming after the Queen and his team.
“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.” executive producer Marc Guggenheim.
Will Black Siren be the primary villain? Will this mean Oliver journeys to Earth 2?
Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8pm on The CW.
