Paul Blackthorne will depart the younger-skewing broadcast network’s DC Comics drama this season.
The actor, who has starred as the beleaguered Detective Quentin Lance on the Greg Berlanti-produced drama, will not return for the drama’s previously announced seventh season.
Blackthorne becomes the latest original star to exit Arrow in its current sixth season. Willa Holland, who played Thea Queen/Speedy for six seasons, exited in March as her character left town in a quest to right her father’s wrongs.
