Arrow Season 5 hasn’t been without some notable returns, and now another trio are putting in their dues for the landmark year. Upcoming episode “The Sin-Eater” will see Oliver square off against China White, Cupid and “Lady Cop” Liza Warner, as Kelly Hu, Amy Gumenick and Rutina Wesley sign on for return appearances.
The CW’s schedule is filling up with enough superheroes to fill a TV Justice League, and it may start to cost some new series. Both the prospective Charmed prequel and a seven-year Lost Boys reboot have been shelved until the next development cycle, and will be reworked in the meantime.

The Supergirl-Flash musical crossover “Duet” may not bring us a full soundtrack of original tunes, but what few new songs we get are quickly populating their own “City of Stars.” Not only is Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star Rachel Bloom contributing a number, but so too are composing team Pasek and Paul, lyricists behind La La Land.
So long as Supergirl and The Flash were going to be flexing their pipes for a musical duet, The CW would naturally want to keep things in the family, right? Yes, the musical stylings of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend will be present in the crossover event, as Rachel Bloom contributes a ‘Super’ song.
Supergirl already had a rich history of past Super-stars in minor roles, and its latest is a major upset for Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman fans. Lois herself, Teri Hatcher will be taking on a major role in the back half of Season 2, but one that’s anything but friendly.
