If there’s one thing comic fans know, it’s that dead never really means dead…

And the same is true, it seems, in The CW’s DC shows.

While no-one really believed that Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy), AKA Black Canary, died last season on Arrow she was really gone, it looks like she actally is coming back…

Executive producer Wendy Mericle has revelaed that Laurel IS set to return this season: “I can tell you that we’re really excited about having her back. You will see in the episodes where she appears – Episode 510 definitely, our midseason premiere. Keep your eyes out for that.

“We’re so excited about getting to work with her again and her willingness to come back. It’s one of the fun parts of the show. People can leave and get killed and you can still find new and crazy ways for them to come back. I can definitely tell you that there’s a way we’re going to bring her back and she’s going to be alive and well. And Flashpoint might have a little bit to do with that.”

Now, we’re wondering if this means the actress will return when Barry Allen changes the shows’ timelines in the Flashpoint story arc which opens the third season of The Flash – timey-wimey as the Doctor Who fans might say.

Mericle confirmed at San Diego Comic Con that Cassidy – like John Barrowman and Wentworth Miller – is definitely not gone from all the shows: “We have made a deal with her across Arrow, The Flash, and Legends of Tomorrow, so Katie Cassidy is definitely not gone from this universe.” 

That all said, Stephen Amell, the actor who plays Arrow AKA Oliver Queen, has said previously that Laurel would NOT return from the dead.

So, what say you all? Will Lance be back from the grave for good or will we see her only in flashbacks and the like?

Let us know your thoughts…
