(KBCW) – Ask and you shall receive, sort of. Many asked when will Laurel Lance become the “Black Canary” on “Arrow?” Many imagined Katie Cassidy in the popular role. However, that will not happen.

Next season, you will see actress Caity Lotz take on the iconic role. Brining it back to the early years of the DC Universe when the original Golden Age “Black Canary” alter-ego was Dinah Drake.

Best known for her roles on “Mad Men,” “Death Valley,” and recently “The Pact,” Caity Lotz is the second actress to be cast for Season 2 of “Arrow.” Summer Glau of “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” and “Firefly” fame, was also cast on the show.
According to “The Wrap,” Drake will be another love interest to Oliver Queen and will be a recurring character
throughout the series, eventually making the transition to series regular.

The “Canary’s” high pitched squeal may or may not come into play, based on the show’s “no super powers” rule. But you never know how they may interpret it out on the storyline.

The new season of “Arrow” premieres on KSTW/ The CW on Wednesday, October 9 at 8/7c.
