Bringing back Amell is a massive win for the ninth season. After all, it was The Arrow that first introduced actor Grant Gustin as Barry Allen before the character was then given his own long-running series.

Throughout the years, the relationship between Oliver and Barry has been pivotal to the greater Arrowverse franchise. When the news was confirmed, Amell tweeted out about the announcement, simply captioning his post “of course I’m coming back” and including a GIF of Oliver and Barry hugging.

When speaking about the last season of The Flash series, executive producer Eric Wallace knew from the beginning that they wanted to bring back Amell for the final season.

“As soon as our final season was announced, we knew we wanted Stephen to come back and reprise his iconic role as Oliver Queen,” began executive producer Eric Wallace. “After all, it was Oliver who originally launched Barry Allen on his heroic path. That’s why everyone on Team Flash felt so strongly that it was important to create a full-circle moment with Oliver’s return in the final season of The Flash.”
