(L to R) Juliana Harkavy as Dinah Drake/Black Canary, and Rick Gonzalez as Rene Ramirez/Wild Dog in Arrow

Well, we now know two folks who will survive Prometheus‘ assault on all things Oliver Queen!

It was just announced that Rick Gonzalez, who plays Rene Ramirez/Wild Dog, and newest Black Canary (Juliana Harkavy) have signed on as series regulars for Arrow‘s sixth season.

That should prove very interesting when Katie Cassidy’s evil Earth 2 Laurel Lance returns full-time as Black Siren, given how Harkavy’s Dinah Drake is now filling the spot on Team Arrow originated by the good (and dead) Lance’s sister Sara (Caity Lotz, now White Canary on Legends of Tomorrow). As for Wild Dog, well, this probably means more bro bonding-slash-banter with Echo Kellum’s Mr. Terrific, and we’re more than OK with that.
