Death is officially meaningless on TV: Katie Cassidy’s coming back to ‘Arrow’ permanently

Rumors of her death have been greatly exaggerated.Image: Dean Buscher/The CW Well, this is unexpected. Katie Cassidy will be returning to Arrow as a series regular in Season 6 despite the fact that her character, Laurel Lance (aka Black Canary), was killed off in Season 4. In the world of superhero shows, anything is possible and Laurel’s sister, Sara (Caity Lotz) has already proven that you can’t keep a good vigilante down, having died and been resurrected on Arrow before moving over to spinoff series DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. But Cassidy won’t be reviving the Laurel Lance that fans knew and loved for the first four seasons of Arrow she’ll be playing the Earth-2 doppelgnger version of Laurel, aka Black Siren, a metahuman criminal who was brought over to Earth-1 by the villainous speedster known as Zoom in The Flash Season 2.

Black Siren was eventually captured and taken into ARGUS custody, but her story clearly isn’t over yet
