Jump to Comments


A familiar face is returning to Starling City next season!

Arrow star Stephen Amell teased the mystery return during an impromptu Facebook Q/A yesterday, after a fan asked him if any cast members from Legends of Tomorrow would be appearing in the first episode of season 5.

“In episode 501? Umm… no comment,” Amell said. “Although we do get to see someone who we haven’t seen in two full seasons. So there’s that.”

Let the guessing games begin!

Amell also revealed that he’ll be wearing a “new or slightly modified” version of the Arrow suit during the upcoming season, and that the season premiere will have a fight scene featuring “the most vicious, violent one-shot (a shot in which there is no cut) in the history of network television.”

Amell’s big tease comes about the return of an Arrow alum comes on the heels of the recent news that Evelyn Sharp will be reprising her role as the masked archer Artemis in season 5, and that Echo Kellum’s Curtis Holt has been promoted to a series regular.
