While Arrow killed off Dinah Laurel Lance a.k.a. the Black Canary (Katie Cassidy) in the fourth season, Cassidy’s time in the Arrowverse wasn’t over as The Flash introduced her Earth-2 doppelganger, the troubled Black Siren who showed up back in the winter premiere. Since getting locked away in ARGUS as Oliver still believes this Laurel can be redeemed, it appears that we’ll be seeing a lot of her in Season 6 and she is set to appear in the last two episodes of the season.
It was announced today that Cassidy has signed a new contract with Arrow to return in a series regular capacity for the sixth season of the Emerald Archer series. Cassidy previously had a 3-show contract which allowed her to appear on this show as well as on The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow. She will be appearing in the season two finale of Legends which airs on Tuesday, April 4. Marc Guggenheim said this in a statement:
“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. 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,” he added, “though as her appearances on Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow this season show, she never really left the family.”
