Black Canary Returns in Arrow Season 7 Set Photo

Juliana Harkavay's Black Canary on Arrow

Oliver Queen may be in prison, but that doesn't mean Star City is left without its mighty defenders. With a single picture, actress Juliana Harkavy has confirmed that the Black Canary will return, perhaps even fiercer than ever before, in Season 7 of Arrow.

The actress shared a set picture from the shoot of the series on Twitter, showing herself partially costumed as Dinah Drake, aka the Black Canary. She may not be wearing the full costume yet, but the domino mask is enough to convey that the Canary will once again prey on the criminals of Star City.

Harkavy joined the cast of Arrow in Season 5. At the time, she was introduced as a possible replacement for Laurel Lance's fallen Black Canary. However, with superior fighting skills and a canary cry that is actually of metahuman origin, Drake proved to be a much closer adaptation of the character from the comic books.

The actress joined the series full time for Season 6, and she is once again poised to be an important part of the show for its upcoming seventh season.
