The CW’s Arrow is getting yet another blast from the past before its post-“Crisis on Infinite Earths” sign-off.
Series vet Susanna Thompson is set to reprise her role of Oliver and Thea’s mom Moira in the Tuesday, Oct. 15, premiere. Executive producer Marc Guggenheim confirmed the actress’ comeback during an interview with GreenArrowTV.com but did not divulge any further intel regarding her latest appearance.
Since Moira’s Season 2 demise, Thompson has returned to Arrow three times. In addition to an uncredited, voice-only role in Season 3’s “Canaries,” she resurfaced in the milestone 100th episode, then again in the Season 5 finale.
Arrow’s eighth and final season is slated to air Tuesdays at 9/8c, where it will now follow Season 6 of The Flash. (Watch our Comic-Con cast Q&A here.)
