Season 4 of Arrow featured the death of Dinah Laurel Lance a.k.a. the Black Canary (Katie Cassidy) and while Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) honored her with a statue in Season 5, that ended up getting destroyed. Although who would have imagined that it would be Laurel’s doppelganger, Black Siren of Earth-2, that would end up destroying it?
But it appears that the Emerald Archer will still find a way to honor her memory in Season 6. Marc Guggenheim, executive producer and showrunner, shared a new piece of production art labeled “Memorial” for the upcoming sixth season.

Even though Earth-1 Laurel is still dead, Cassidy will be back as a series regular in the coming season as Black Siren. Production on Season 6 is set to begin sometime in July in Vancouver, Canada, along with the new seasons of The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow.
“After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy). Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his relationship with each member of his “family”
Arrow Season 6 premieres on Thursday, October 12 at 9/8c on The CW. The complete fifth season will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD on September 19.
