It looks like we can expect more of Connor Hawke on the CW this fall. According to Deadline, Joseph-David Jones has been upped to a series regular on the final season of Arrow.
Jones stars as Connor Hawke, who was revealed to be the biological son of Michael Jai White’s Bronze Tiger this past season. Originally introduced on an episode of Legends of Tomorrow in 2016, Connor Hawke didn’t appear on Arrow until season seven where he aided Felicity and Mia in taking down Galaxy One during the flashforwards.
Details on the upcoming final season of Arrow are few and far between, but it’s sure to tie-into the “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover that will begin airing at the end of the year. Season eight will also surely continue the Star City 2040 storyline that began last season.
