Shadowhunters star Katherine McNamara has been cast in the role of Maya, a “pivotal” recurring role on Arrow‘s upcoming seventh season
Katherine McNamara will recur on the CW superhero drama’s seventh season as Maya, a scrappy street fighter and thief from Star City.
In season 7, Arrow plans on exploring redemption as Oliver Queen finds himself behind bars after publicly confessing to being the Green Arrow. “[After] the way things ended last season, he’s got to prove himself to part of the city he’s been lying to for six years,” showrunner Beth Schwartz recently told EW.
“He was their mayor and the Green Arrow, and they had no idea. Everyone’s got mixed opinions about him as a person, and he’s going to have to redeem himself through the season.”
On Arrow, she joins other previously-announced Season 7 additions: Holly Elissa, Miranda Edwards, and Michael Jonsson as the Longbow Hunters.
Also returning for Season 7 will be series regular Colton Haynes as Roy Harper.
