McLaughlin Canary No More

According to Variety, Season 4 Arrow guest star Madison McLaughlin is due for an encore, though this time abandoning her wannabe Canary get-up.

Having previously appeared in the first episode following Laurel’s death — as Evelyn Crawford, an aspiring vigilante — McLaughlin will reprise her role in multiple Season 5 episodes. This time, though, Evelyn will adopt the superhero persona of the archer known as Artemis.

Who Is Artemis?

In DC Comics lore, Artemis was the daughter of villains Sportsmaster and Huntress, though she was eventually taken under Green Arrow’s wing after his sidekick Speedy left.

Interestingly, Evelyn Sharp (Crawford) had her own DC alter ego, as the Birds of Prey member Starling, but the CW series obviously chose to go in another direction. We here at SciFi Pulse look forward to Madison McLaughlin is her expanded role.

Other incoming Arrow additions include Chicago P.D.’s Josh Segarra (in the series regular role or DA Adrian Chase aka Vigilante) and Reaper alum Rick Gonzalez as the DC Comics character Wild Dog.

Arrow Season 5 premieres Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 8/7c.
