Arrow: Colton Haynes Returns for Pre-Crisis Episode

Arrow's Roy Harper/Arsenal

As production continues on Arrow's eighth and final season, Colton Haynes' return as Roy Harper has been confirmed through new set photos from the CW series.

As principal photography on the upcoming season's seventh episode, ominously titled "Purgatory," wrapped, Haynes was seen traveling from the set in what appears to be a sequence set in the Arrowverse's relative present, as opposed to the character's appearances throughout Season 7 in a possible, dystopian future.
