John Barrowman's Arrow character, Malcolm Merlyn, has been promoted to a series regular for season 3...

"Time has proven that it's very difficult to kill John Barrowman". These were the words of Arrow lead Stephen Amell to Den Of Geek on the cusp of the DC-inspired show's second season. How right he was.

We'll be seeing a great deal more of Barrowman's villainous Arrow character (formerly known as the Well-Dressed Man, now Malcolm Merlyn), in season three as the actor has been promoted from guest role to series regular. It's good news for Barrowman fans, but another delay to the schedule of anyone waiting patiently for a Torchwood revival.

Here's The CW's official bumf about Arrow's third season:

"After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. He returned home to Starling City, bent on righting the wrongs of his family and fighting injustice. To do this, he creates the persona of the Arrow and allies himself with former military man John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), street brawler Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) and international assassin Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), while keeping his secret from those closest to him including his sister Thea (Willa Holland), who has allied herself with his most deadly enemy. Rivalries and allegiances will shift as Oliver faces his most difficult challenge yet."
