The mid-season finale of Arrow saw Oliver Queen seemingly killed off at the hands of Ra's al Ghul and then fall off a cliff.

It's been speculated that Oliver Queen may return with the help of the Lazarus Pit, which is Ra'a al Ghul's restorative chemical pool.

Stephen Amell even teased the Lazarus Pit on his Facebook page by teasing Arrow fan art (above).

However, now it's learned the Lazarus Pit won't be responsible for bringing Oliver Queen back.

While speaking with the Collider, Amell rules out the Lazarus Pit.

"We just saw him fall.  We’ve seen Oliver survive," Amell responded when asked what it would take for Oliver to have survived. "So, [we don’t know] whether he went straight off the cliff, whether something broke his fall, whether he hit the ground.  We have mystical herbs on the show that have healing powers.  We’ve seen a Lazarus Pit, although that’s not something that’s going to be used for Oliver.  I hope he survives.  I like playing him."

Arrow returns this week, Wednesday, January 21st at 8pm ET on the CW.
