The “Arrow” alum will be back as a series regular in Season 6, playing Black Siren. She will first appear in the final two episodes of the CW show in the current fifth season.
An original cast member of “Arrow,” Cassidy portrayed Laurel Lance/Black Canary for the first four seasons, before being killed off in the midst of Season 4. After she was killed, Cassidy signed a deal with the CW to appear across the DC universe portfolio of shows in a guest capacity — then she reappeared as Black Siren, the villainous Earth 2 version of Black Canary, in “Arrow’s” midseason premiere of Season 5.
““Haus of Edwards” and “Detox’s Life Rehab” will run on WOW Presents, the company’s YouTube channel that has about 600,000 subscribers. Both series will be eight episodes, running roughly 30 minutes. World of Wonder is targeting premiere dates in late April, to coincide with its RuPaul’s DragCon convention in L.A. set for April 29-30, with eps to be released weekly”- Todd Spangler for Variety
ClexaCon, a new convention celebrating LGBTQ women in entertainment, generated such interest among both fans and actors that “Grey’s Anatomy” star Sara Ramirez turned up in Las Vegas to attend the event, which was held over the weekend.

It’s crazy because me, Norman, and Melissa are very close. We know each other really well. To do scenes like that, it can’t help but become personal.

She and I have that real connection. Steven [Yeun] and I had that connection.
