The CW has added Colton Haynes as Roy Harper to their popular DC Comics television show, Arrow.

"We were big fans of Colton from Teen Wolf and we are thrilled he's joining Arrow," executive producer Greg Berlanti told TVGuide.

Haynes will be joining Arrow in 2013 with his character described as, "a handsome, street-savvy, teenager from 'the Glades,' the harsh, poverty-stricken portion of Starling City."

Roy Harper will also be the love interest to Thea Queen aka Speedy, where it's said the two cross paths "in an unexpected way," and the character is "destined to become a significant part of her life and an important player in the larger world of Arrow."

Roy Harper was known as Oliver Queen's sidekick in the comics, Speedy, as well as Arsenal and Red Arrow. Currently in the New 52, Roy Harper can be found in Red Hood and the Outlaws.

Arrow airs Wednesdays at 8pm ET on the CW.
