Philadelphia (CW Philly) — Star City’s skilled agent of Knightwatch is sticking around. Joseph-David Jones, who portrays Connor Hawke on Arrow, has been upped to a series regular for the show’s eighth and final season.

The 30-year-old actor took to social media to share the news and captioned his post, “#Arrow Season 8 just got a little more interesting.”

The last season of Arrow ended with Felicty, Dinah, and Roy leaving Star City and relying on Future Team Arrow (Mia, William, Zoe, and Connor) to keep the city safe. Who has predictions for the the final season? Sound off in the comments!

Arrow will return to The CW Philly with all new episodes this fall. Stay tuned for a premiere date.
