This news comes just months after it was revealed that Shadowhunters would end after three seasons with the final 12 episodes airing in spring 2019. Freeform will also air a two-hour finale. Luckily for McNamara, the new role won’t be too big of an adjustment as Arrow‘s fandom is just as passionate as that of Shadowhunters.
Apart from those series, McNamara recently reprised her role as Sonya in The Maze Runner trilogy’s latest installment The Maze Runner: The Death Cure.
Also returning for Season 7 will be series regular Colton Haynes as Roy Harper.
Make sure to tune in for the Arrow Season 7 premiere, as McNamara will reportedly appear within the first half of the season.
