Pretty much everything is coming back. So where does that leave pilots?

Blackthorne has played interim Mayor of Star City Quentin Lance for six years. He now won't be returning as a series regular on the superhero drama series.

He joins Willa Holland (Thea Queen/Speedy) who made the decision to leave Arrow as well.

So... who's left? As for original cast members, it's only Stephen Amell (Oliver/Arrow) and David Ramsey (Diggle/Spartan). However, fans can look forward to the return of Colton Haynes (Roy Harper/Arsenal), who has been added as a series regular in the upcoming seventh season.
