The CW's 'Arrow' hasn't been shy in introducing DC characters both good and bad throughout its first two seasons, thought at least a few major comic players have made more lasting impressions than others. Find out which DC femme fatale will return for 'Arrow''s season 3 premiere this fall, and what it might mean for the series at large!

You're warned of minor spoilers for 'Arrow' seasons 2 and 3 from here on out, though it seems the unfortunate departure of one of the series' better characters wasn't quite so permanent as we might have thought. Yes, in spite of season 2 finale "Unthinkable" putting Caity Lotz's Sara Lance / Canary on a barge bound for the League of Assassins' Nanda Parbat, TVGuide has learned that the character will put in an appearance for season 3 premiere "The Calm," something executive producer Marc Guggenheim confirmed over Twitter.

What the Canary might have to do with 'Arrow''s third season opener is up for debate at least, given we know that Oliver has been reveling in Starling City praise for the time being, even going so far as to entertain the idea of a date with a familiar friend. Of course, season 2 also left us with the cliffhangers of Sara's father Quentin in some dire straits, as well as Thea Queen departing with excommunicated League member (and season 3 regular) Malcolm Merlyn, so either side could potentially pluck Caity Lotz out of Hollywood and into 'Arrow' season 3.

In addition to Lotz's return, 'Arrow' season 3 has recruited 'Superman Returns' star Brandon Routh in a major recurring role as tech magnate (and likely Felicity love interest) Ray Palmer, better known as DC's "The Atom." Not only that, but '22 Jump Street''s Peter Stormare will act as our new Vertigo, and ‘Real Steel’ star Karl Yune will play Oliver’s flashback Hong Kong handler, along with ‘Sin City‘ star Devon Aoki as comic character Katana.

We’ll learn more of ‘Arrow’ season 3 both from its own panel and the massive Comic-Con 2014 event that also includes spinoff ‘The Flash,’ FOX’s ‘Gotham,’ and NBC’s ‘Constantine,’ but what say you? Does Caity Lotz's  ‘Arrow’ season 3 return deserve a Canary cry? Tell us what you want to see from ‘Arrow’ season 3 in the comments, and stay tuned for the latest from Comic-Con 2014!
