‘Arrow’ Showrunner On “Olicity” Relationship In Season 6

After a long buildup, the Arrow season finale saw Olicity come to a dead stop. EP Marc Guggenheim discusses what fans can expect from the pair in season 6.


The complicated relationship between Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak appears to be staying that way. After a long buildup over the past two seasons, the season 5 finale saw Olicity come to a dead stop. This weekend at Comic-Con, ComicBook.com asked executive producer Marc Guggenheim what fans can expect from the pair in season 6. Check out what he had to say below:

“I’m going to give a very unsatisfying answer to the Olicity fans, which is that we sort of set Oliver and Felicity on a certain trajectory starting with 520, and you saw a little bit of it in 523. We’re continuing it. I will say that the events of the finale did throw a little bit of a wrench into their slow rekindling of their relationship.”

Going by the trailer released for the upcoming season, it seems that Oliver’s son William might just be that wrench. Perhaps William becoming a larger part of his father’s life is not something Felicity is totally on board with?

No matter what capacity Olicity continues on in, as always be sure to follow Heroic Hollywood for all news about the upcoming season.

With the future of the team left hanging in the balance, Arrow gave new definition to the phrase “blowing up the show.” The emotional showdown between Oliver Queen and Adrian Chase was the perfect conclusion to a stellar fifth season of The CW’s gritty DC Super Hero series. Now, the focus shifts to uncovering the fate of each and every member of Team Arrow. Could anyone have possibly survived an island-wide explosion, or has the book closed on them, as it has on Oliver’s five-year flashback story?

Arrow season six will premiere on Thursday, October 12 at 9/8c on The CW.
