Arrow Showrunner Shoots Down Olicity Baby for Season 7

Just dropped at San Diego Comic-Con, the trailer gives us an early look at what Arrow season seven will open with: a miserable Ollie behind bars and an equally miserable Team Arrow wondering just how the hell they're going to cope in a possible future where Oliver has hung up his bow for good. When the new season picks up, Oliver will still be behind bars in Slabside Maximum Security Prison, where he'll come face to face with some people he's put behind bars, including Bronze Tiger, Derek Sampson, and Brick. With all three held in Slabside, Oliver will be forced to confront these and other villains he locked up while wearing the hood. Could it be Roy?

Confirmed at the panel was the casting of the lethal Longbow Hunters, set to be played by Holly Elissa (Whistler) as Red Dart, a ruthless and precise killer; Michael Jonsson (Van Helsing) as Kodiak, a beast of a man with brute force; and Miranda Edwards (The Magicians, Orphan Black) as Silencer, a master of stealth. They were hired by Ricardo Diaz to get his revenge on Oliver after they stopped him in season six.

The original Longbow Hunters were out to kill Green Arrow in the comic books.


As the CW's superhero juggernaut Arrow heads towards an intense seventh season, questions have been bubbling away - only some of them about Oliver Queen's goatee. The Longbow Hunters will all want to be hunting down Oliver, but it's not clear what their backstories will be.

Arrow returns Monday, Oct. 15 at 8 p.m. ET on the CW. Arrow is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc.in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros.
