The fifth season of Arrow ended on a pretty huge open-ended cliffhanger, and while we know someone died in the finale, it’s not clear as to who it was. It appears that the 6th season premiere of Arrow will reveal who has passed away and who still lives. In addition, the premiere will also show Oliver mourning the loss of those who died, if there are multiple people.
When speaking ComicBook.com at San Diego Comic-Con, executive producer Wendy Mericle revealed the news:
“I think you’re gonna see both. We will get answers. You’ll know by the end of the premiere who made it and who didn’t, and you’ll see Oliver mourning. You’ll definitely see him going through a grieving process”
With season 6 amping up the stakes, a new villain is on the horizon in the form of Richard Dragon, who according to Mericle, is akin to Prometheus in the sense that both want to make things personal.
“I think the thing we get out of Richard Dragon is a different way of approaching what worked last season. We liked that we went back to this gritty crime drama for the show, and Richard Dragon gives us an opportunity to do that. He’s from the streets, he’s a fighter. He’s more from the glade side of town, he’s a gang leader, and we’re going to use that to our advantage and also explore new territory. We’ve seen Oliver go up against a lot of people, but nobody quite like him.”
With Richard Dragon being the new villain, what do you want to see him do in the next season of Arrow? Comment below and let us know!
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 will premiere on Thursday, October 12 at 9:00 pm ET on The CW. The complete fifth season will be available on Blu-Ray and DVD on September 19.
