What a Season 6 Renewal Means For Arrow
Of all the shows The CW renewed today during their presentation at the Television Critics [...]
YAHOO!!! ARROW SEASON 6
Of course this is not remotely a surprise, but it’s nice to have it announced earlier. The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow were also renewed. LOT was on the bubble, but given that it’s part of the DC four night line up, and that the CW doesn’t give a flying flip about ratings, I wasn’t that worried.
Normally, I’m not a huge fan of comicbook.com articles, but this one peeked my interest. Here’s why:
“The series will also likely have a new face when it returns in season 6; the members of the original Team Arrow have been scattered to the four winds this season, but seem to be playing a bigger and bigger role as the season wears on. Meanwhile, the new recruits will likely not be all gone when the show returns next season.”
So, the good news is it sounds like Original Team Arrow will be getting an increased focus as the season continues. Hallelujah. However, THIS is what really had me interested:
“Meanwhile, the new recruits will likely not be all gone when the show returns next season.”
I think I’ve theorized about this before, but I can’t remember which post. Either way, I’ll just theorize again. The sudden influx of new cast members has been… odd. Don’t get me wrong. Arrow always introduces new characters - that’s just part of the show. But normally it’s only one or two at a time, especially in terms of the team. The introduction of Rory, Wild Dog, Evelyn and Curtis has been a major focus of 5A. Such a large focus that three original Arrow cast members have been benched to make room: Felicity, Thea and Lance. There’s also Billy, Susan, the new DA Adrian Chase and, of course, Prometheus. That’s a lot of additions.
My theory (that I can’t remember where I posted before) is… I wonder if this is like Grey’s Anatomy Season 6?
