A lifetime of TV fakeouts has conditioned us to question death, but Arrow may well stick with its big Laurel twist from Season 4. A new piece of production art from Season 5 gives us a glimpse into the Black Canary’s legacy, and another heroic addition to Star City.

Arrow Season 5 certainly made waves with its intent to cast a villain cut from the cloth of The Wire iron Stringer Bell, but who knew they’d go right to the source? The fifth season of DC’s emerald archer drama has tapped Wire and Walking Dead alum Chad Coleman for a majorly bad role, uniting all of Star City’s criminals.
Throw another vigilante in the Arrow Season 5 mix, but - twist - this one you’ve met before. The DC drama will officially introduce a new spin on female archer vigilante Artemis, albeit filling the role with the same mysterious Evelyn Sharp character we met last season.
Months out from its premiere, Arrow Season 5 has played reasonably coy with new heroes and villains populating Star City this year, until now, at least. The next Arrow run has revealed that DC vigilante “Wild Dog” will make things difficult for Oliver Queen, with Rick Gonzalez taking the part.
Arrow Season 4 didn’t quite clue us into next year’s big bad the way Season 3 name-dropped Damien Darhk, leaving fans to sleuth out his or her identity with “charming” descriptions. Now, an new report says the Arrow Season 5 big bad will take a few cues from legendary The Wire villain Stringer Bell, with just a hint of Jason Momoa.
Just over a week removed from the Arrow Season 4 finale, fans are still awaiting the new big bad to menace Star City (or maybe the entire galaxy this time, for scale), but what of any new heroes? Well, heroes-ish, anyway, as Arrow Season 5 is looking to add a reckless new vigilante to its ranks.
Any Arrow fan well-remembers that the CW drama’s take on DC’s Suicide Squad seemingly went up in smoke over the course of Season 3, reportedly over corporate mandate not to compete with David Ayer’s upcoming film. Now, series star Willa Holland confirms as much, venting her frustration that DC TV can’t interact with the films the way Marvel or Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. do.
The fourth season finale of Arrow ended on a fairly low-key “Schism,” disappointing a throng of fans who tuned into see if a time-turning Flash twist one-night earlier would ripple out across The CW’s DC dramas. The Arrow finale went by with nary a mention of Central City, but star Stephen Amell thinks the emerald archer will be back to basics in Season 5, rather than dealing with time-travel twists from another series.
‘Arrow’ faced down a nuclear “Schism” at the hands of Damien Darhk for its Season 4 finale, but what big twist saw Oliver finally stepping into the light? And what exactly will send us to Russia in Season 5? Find out in our full review!
It’s that time of year again, as Flash and Arrow gear up for their respective second and fourth season finales, following this past week’s Legends of Tomorrow closer. The full photo sets see Barry in “The Race of His Life,” but what “Schism” might Arrow be hurtling toward in the final showdown with Damien Darhk?
