Arrow actor Colton Haynes, who plays Roy Harper on the series, has said via Twitter that he was not asked back as a series regular for Arrow’s eighth and final season, Deadline reports.

“Getting a lot of angry messages so just to clarify…I didn’t exit the last season of Arrow,” he tweeted. “I was not asked to come back for the final season as a series regular. But y’all know Roy…he’s never gone for too long.”

What that means as far as his appearance schedule on the final season of the show is unclear.

Series EP Beth Schwartz told GreenArrowTV.com that “We hope to have him back,” adding, “We love him and he’s obviously one of the foundations of the show.” However, she did not outline any particular path.
