Colton Haynes (Roy Harper) Promoted To Series Regular For ARROW Season 2

Good news Roy Harper fans, Colton Haynes, who portrays the Green Arrow sidekick on The CW's Arrow has been promoted to series regular for season two. This all but guarantees he'll be suiting up next season right?

At PaleyFest 2013, Arrow showrunners were a little hesitant to say exactly how much of Roy Harper the series would feature moving forward into the show's second season. "It's pilot season", one producer stated. The meaning here is that actress Jessica De Gouw who portrays Huntress landed the female lead role in NBC's Dracula pilot and Seth Gabel who portrays "Count" Vertigo secured a costarring role on ABC's Gothica. Now that doesn't necessarily mean that the actors won't be returning to Arrow but if their pilots get picked up, it would most likely mean that at the very best, the duo would return for only an episode or two.

Not so for Colton Haynes. While it appeared there was a chance Haynes could have similar pilot season success, The CW has secured Haynes for Season Two. It was also revealed at PaleyFest that Roy Harper will be coming face-to-face with The Arrow in episode 18 and that won't be a fun meeting for Roy.
