2016-12-03
Colton Haynes has been feeling a little thankful this week as CW’s Arrow celebrates its 100th episode. Colton was a regular on the show, appearing in 54 of the episodes until he left it last year, according to Gay Star News. Haynes took to Instagram on Wednesday (November 30) to thank the cast and crew of the show.

Tonight the 100th episode of #Arrow airs...I am so thankful to have been a part of this show for 54 episodes & counting. I had no idea I was going to be in the DC world until the incredible @gberlanti called and asked if I'd come on for 3 episodes which then turned into multiple seasons of pure joy & more laughs than I can explain. I owe u the world Greg! This cast has seen me through my best & darkest times and I love them more than I can explain. I owe so much to the producers/network/cast/writers & crew for letting me be in this family but most importantly...we have the best fans in the world. The reason this show got this far is because of y'all & I'm sending so much love to every single one of you for changing my life. ❤️❤️❤️

“I am so thankful to have been part of this show,” Haynes wrote in the lengthy post. “I had no idea I was going to be in the DC world until the incredible (Greg Berlanti) called and asked if I’d come on for three episodes which then turned into multiple seasons of pure joy and more laughs than I can explain.” Haynes, who came out last year, received tremendous support from his fellow cast members. “This cast has seen me through my best and darkest times and I love them more than I can explain. I owe so much to the producers/network/cast/writers & crew for letting me be in this family.” But Haynes didn’t leave the fans out of the post, thanking them for their support. “We have the best fans in the world. The reason this show got this far is because of y’all and I’m sending so much love to every single one of you for changing my life.” The Scream Queens has been vacationing in Hawaii and sharing his holiday snaps with his devoted fans.
