Curtis Returns in New Arrow Season 8 Photos

This is terrific news!

Lindsay MacDonald

Mr. Terrific is back, y'all! New photos from Episode 4 of Arrow's eighth and final season reveal that Echo Kellum will return as Curtis Holt, and we're so excited to have him back!

Curtis left Team Arrow in the back half of Season 7 after Kellum reportedly chose to leave the show in order to spend more time with his family in Los Angeles. In the narrative, Curtis decided to leave to pursue a tech job with Kohler Humanitarian Institute in D.C after his technology saved Dinah's (Juliana Harkavy) life after her throat had been slit. Realizing his inventions could help millions, he nobly chose to put away his vigilantism.

Now though, he's back in Star City in the only episode of the season that takes place entirely in Oliver's (Stephen Amell) hometown, according to Stephen Amell. According to the episode synopsis, the team will be taking on a mysterious new Deathstroke in this episode, while the future Team Arrow continues to face off with JJ (Charlie Barnett) while reeling from the loss of one of their own. These Deathstroke-related storylines are certainly coming together nicely! Now, where's Manu Bennett?
