According to Variety, Madison McLaughlin will reprise her role as the troubled teen, Evelyn Sharp, in Arrow Season 5. She will take on the role of the archer vigilante named ‘Artemis’. We last saw Evelyn in the Season 4 episode titled ‘Canary Cry’, where she donned the Black Canary costume in an attempt to take down Ruve Darhk as a means to avenge her parents.
In the comics, Artemis was the daughter of villains Tigress and Sportsmaster, and a member of the Injustice Society. The character was given a heroic twist in DC animated series “Young Justice,” where she became Green Arrow’s sidekick after Roy Harper left the group.
McClaughlin will make her Season 5 debut in the season’s second episode and her arc will play out over multiple episodes as she forges her new heroic identity.
Arrow Season 5 will premiere Wednesday, October 5th at 8PM/EST.
