Arrow Season 7: Shadowhunters’ Katherine McNamara Joins Cast

Katherine McNamara is taking aim at her first post-Shadowhunters gig โ€” and itโ€™s a doozy. TVLine has learned exclusively that the actress is joining Arrow in a pivotal recurring role.

According to sources, McNamara will appear during the first half of Season 7 as Maya, a scrappy street fighter and thief from Star City. The initial โ€” and unofficial โ€” casting notice for the character likened the character to โ€œBuffy the Superhero Slayer.โ€

McNamaraโ€™s casting comes roughly three months after Freeform announced that Shadowhunters would conclude after three seasons. The final 12-episode run โ€” aka Season 3B, titled Shadowhunters: The Final Hunt โ€” will air in Spring 2019 and include a two-hour series finale event.
