It’s finally official folks: Katie is returning to Arrow as Black Siren in the last two episodes of season 5, and she will stick around for next season.
“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,” said executive producer Marc Guggenheim in a statement.
“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.”
Reminder that Katie will also be on the season finale Legends of Tomorrow, and according to Guggenheim it will be a very emotional scene.
