Check out this new scoop on the upcoming fifth season of Arrow!
It sounds like Oliver (Stephen Amell) will be dealing with his past a lot.
“[Season 5] deals with legacy, it deals with the past, and the dramatic irony, the dramatic tension, that we get from it is Oliver’s always been a guy — admittedly, not the most self aware dude ever — but he’s always been someone who is trying to move forward. He’s always trying to evolve,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim told IGN.com. “The challenge for Oliver this year is how do you evolve and move forward when the past keeps grabbing at you, trying to pull you back.”
On where Oliver and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) stand, he said, “We always play the true five month gap between the season finale and season premiere. And every time we’ve talked about Oliver and Felicity should talk about their feelings, we realized, wow, that feels really wrong because they’ve had five months to talk about their feelings. Any mature couple, they’ve had that conversation.”
Arrow is set to return on October 5.
