As The CW’s Arrow gears up for its eighth and final season, now comes word that one of the show’s supporting players is getting promoted to a series regular.
Courtesy of Deadline, Katherine McNamara is now a series regular for the upcoming final season for Oliver Queen and Co. McNamara, of course, played Mia Queen in the flash-forward moments of Arrow’s seventh season. That character is the daughter of Oliver and Felicity, and she’s one of the key parts of the future’s Team Arrow line-up.
Given that Katherine McNamara and Joseph David-Jones – the show’s Connor Hawke – are both now confirmed to return for Season 8, that most certainly suggests that we’ll be getting more jumps to the future in Arrow’s final year.
Production is now underway on Arrow’s eighth season, with the ten-episode final season to premiere later this year.
