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

'Arrow' Recap: S4E19 "Canary Cry" Heroic Hollywood 6-olicity
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.

8 Reasons Why DC’s TV Shows Are Better Than Marvel’s

Previous1 of 9

DC TV Better Marvel TV
While the superheroes are taking turns bringing their A-game to the big screen, the small screen has seen its fair share of superheroes as well. With comic book movies boom being at an all-time high, television series have also arisen to take their place, showing off more heroes in a smaller budget. These series have ranged in quality from being widely loved to widely criticized on both sides of DC and Marvel, but in general it seems as if DC has produced some of the better shows. While Marvel has so far done better on the big screen, DC has taken up the mantle of television dominance. They have created multiple series for different networks and have made some great TV content over the past few years. DC has also out-shined Marvel for several years and with competition increasing, it’s a good time to look at the reasons why that is. Click next to take a look.

    If there is no Olicity in Season 6 , then I’m sadly done with Arrow. All the teasing from the last two season is enough. My question is ….Why would the fanboys like a father/son relationship when they didn’t like Olicity?

    • Tiera Worden-Byers

      No need to worry, especially with the little bit of nothing you read here. lol

      Olicity is happening and Oliver is going to need everyone’s help with his son and those main 3 will be Felicity, Thea and Raisa. Felicity has never had a problem with William, so she’ll be there for him as well. So get ready, they’re coming. xoxo

      *They would like a father/son relationship because it’s cannon. The only thing that could make it better for them, is if he was named Connor. And you know why they didn’t like Olicity… it’s not Lauliver.

  • So all the times this weekend where Stephen or someone else said that he and Felicity are in a good place, that William is a factor but not a problem…. those soundbites mean nothing. But Marc making a cryptic statement about the speed at which they rekindle their relationship, y’all wanna say is because Felicity doesn’t approve of his relationship with his child? Do you even WATCH the show? Felicity has TOLD him she wants him to have a relationship with William.

    Try again.
