Slade Wilson's Return Slated for "Arrow" Season 3

Those hoping for a return of "Arrow's" Slade Wilson are in for a pleasant surprise: MTV reports that Manu Bennett is scheduled to return to The CW drama as Slade Wilson in 2015, appearing in the third season's fourteenth episode.

When last audiences saw Slade, it was at the end of "Arrow" season two, after his defeat in Starling City. Cured of his Mirakuru-fueled powers, he was imprisoned in an A.R.G.U.S. prison on Lian Yu, vowing to a visiting Oliver Queen that he would find a way to escape.

It's currently unknown whether Bennett will appear in a flashback or as present-day Slade Wilson. However he appears, Oliver already has his hands full on "Arrow" -- especially given the "Arrow" crossover with "The Flash" slated for this week with trailers for the two-episode event highlighting the rivalry between Barry Allen and Oliver Queen.

"Arrow" airs Wednesdays on The CW.
