Arrow‘s second season finale was last night, you can read FTN’s review here.

Now The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that actor John Barrowman, who plays Malcolm Merlyn, has been upgraded to a series regular for the third season of Arrow.

Here’s the official description for Arrow season three which is set to air this fall:

“After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. He returned home to Starling City, bent on righting the wrongs of his family and fighting injustice. To do this, he creates the persona of the Arrow and allies himself with former military man John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), street brawler Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) and international assassin Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), while keeping his secret from those closest to him including his sister Thea (Willa Holland), who has allied herself with his most deadly enemy. Rivalries and allegiances will shift as Oliver faces his most difficult challenge yet.”

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8 P.M. EST on The CW.​​
