Colton Haynes revealed in his narrative that it wasn’t his contract that made him not return as a series regular character, but the reasons are depression and one particular Arrow cast member that he couldn’t stand to work with. He further added:

“I had walked away from my full-time job on Arrow at the beginning of the year, supposedly because my contract had ended. but it was really because I was too depressed and I couldn’t stand working with one of my cast mates.”

Not only this, but it’s still unclear whether it was one of the other series regulars or a recurring visitor that showed up in season 7. In Arrow season 7, Roy’s biggest arc was especially in the future as Haynes characterized an older Arsenal working with Mia Queen-Smoak, William Clayton, and more. Colton Haynes also reprised the DC hero in the following three episodes, including the finale where he and Thea Queen get engaged. Haynes hasn’t come back to the Arrowverse again in the series finale.

So, it’s a good reason for the actor to exit the show. However, many are speculating that Haynes was referring to Miss Memory Lane. Until Colton Haynes shares more about this case, it will be unclear which Arrow cast member was making it difficult for his experience on set.
