It is not confirmed that Jessica will be back as The Huntress on ‘Arrow’ next season but there’s still a good possibility:

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTERAre the Birds of Prey assembling?
In the comics, the Birds of Prey are an all-female team comprised of superheroes and villains. The lineup has changed over the years, but Arrow characters Black Canary (Katie Cassidy), Katana (Rila Fukushima), and Huntress (Jessica De Gouw) have all been Birds of Prey in the comics.

Guggenheim remained tightlipped on the possibility of introducing the Birds of Prey, bit did confirm his desire to bring back the Huntress for season four. “We have a great Huntress story,” he said. “We just have to find the right time for it, and it would be a shame if we couldn’t get her back this year.”

Amell told THR that in season four, Oliver will run into an old friend in Coast City. Could this be a reference to season one’s Detective McKenna Hall (Janina Gavankar) who was relocated to Coast City after mob boss daughter Helena Bertinelli (AKA the Huntress) — temporarily paralyzed her? That could be a way to bring the Huntress back into the fold.

Finally we have some official news from ‘Arrow’ executive producer Marc Guggenheim about Jessica’s character “The Huntress”!

Hey all.

First, thanks to the many, many, many — MANY — people on Tumblr and Twitter who’ve reached out to ask me about if, when, and how the amazingly talented and simply amazing Jessica De Gouw would be returning to Arrow.
And thank you for being patient with me as I continued to promise this update.

I have good news, bad news, and wait-and-see news.

First, the bad news…

We’d been discussing an episode that would return Helena Bertinelli to Arrow for Season 3, but it didn’t come together for a variety of reasons having nothing to do with Jessica or her willingness to return. As most of you know, despite doing 23 episodes a season — god help me — we still somehow manage to run out of room to tell certain stories (e.g., Felicity’s parents). Unfortunately, Helena’s episode in Season 3 was one of those casualties of our lack of real estate. We value Jessica and the character she created too much to waste both of them on a story we can’t give proper attention to.

Now for the good news…

Tomorrow, Helena/The Huntress will make her return to Arrow in comics form as part of our ongoing Season 2.5 series. Unlike her previous appearance in 2.5, this time the Huntress’ return is not a hoax, not a dream, and not a hallucination.

Arrow Deadline Gallipoli Interviews these final hours
27th Jul

NEWS.COM.AU – Rachael Taylor, Margot Robbie, The Hunger Games’ Stef Dawson … rising star Jessica De Gouw has joined a growing list of Aussie actresses that have found Hollywood easier to crack than their own, homegrown film industry.

Like most “overnight sensations,” the 26-year-old West Australian would like to think that she at least paid some of her dues.

But even De Gouw is surprised by the speed with which her career took off after she moved to Los Angeles two years ago.

After landing her first screen role in Southern Star TV series The Sleepover Club at the tender age of 16, De Gouw decided that, in the interests of career longevity, she should first study her craft at Curtin University before attempting the difficult feat of making it as a professional actor.

On graduation, she moved to Sydney to look for work.

“I did bit and bobs of TV and film,’’ says the actress during a break from filming TV series Deadline Gallipoli with Sam Worthington and Hugh Dancy.

“But it was hard to crack so I thought I would just take the leap. I first went to LA in mid-2012 – packed a bag and went over there.”

TV LINE – The Huntress returns to Arrow tonight (The CW, 8/7c) on a mission of revenge, and she’s also aiming… to score her own show?

An off-shoot is certainly on the wish list of executive producer Marc Guggenheim. But first, Helena reemerges in Starling City this week and takes Laurel — among others — hostage just as the recovering alcoholic lawyer is finally starting to get her mojo back at work. Enter: The Canary (aka little sis Sara)!

Read on as Guggenheim and guest star Jessica De Gouw, aka The Huntress, share six things to know about the action-packed hour.

IT’S A SISTER ACT | Episode 17 “was very much designed to be a Laurel and Sara story using Helena as the fulcrum in that relationship, and Oliver definitely does take a little bit more of a back seat,” previews Guggenheim.

IT’S A COMEBACK STORY | “This is the episode where Laurel gets her groove back,” reveals the EP. “We knew that we wanted to return Laurel to the D.A.’s office and we knew that Laurel, by the end of the episode, had to be in a good emotional place. So we wanted to emotionally and professionally reestablish her.”

IT’S A BLAST FROM THE PAST | “Obviously, when you’re talking about bringing [Laurel] back to the D.A.’s office, you naturally think about, ‘OK, what case is she prosecuting?’” Guggenheim says. “The scenarios that resonate best with us are, ‘What’s a case that could affect a character who we care about?” And that led [executive producer] Andrew [Kreisberg] to pitch the idea, ‘What if Frank Bertinelli is being prosecuted and The Huntress comes back to town?’”
