TVLine Items: Arrow Return Teased, Shooter Adds Justified Dad and More

Arrow Tommy Returns

A familiar face will make another encore during Season 6 of Arrow.

Series lead Stephen Amell teased via Twitter that Colin Donnell is back on set at the CW superhero drama, though one can only speculate how the late Tommy Merlyn will “return” this time. (Amell’s tweet ruled out the notion of a flashback.) The news comes on the heels of reports that Caity Lotz will bring Sara Lance back to Arrow for its season finale.

Earlier this season, Donnell appeared in the “Crisis on Earth-X” crossover event, as that alternate world’s Nazi version of Tommy. The actor can currently be seen as Doctor Connor Rhodes on NBC’s Chicago Med.
