ARROW: Stephen Amell Hints At New Direction and Villain for Season Five [The CW]

Stephen Amell Upfronts 2016

Stephen Amell Teases New Direction For Arrow’s Fifth Season. Most fans can agree that the last two seasons of Arrow have been lackluster at best, so a lot is riding on the line for season five to become great again. Stephen Amell teased a major change coming for the new season.

The fourth season of The CW series didn’t impress a lot of fans who were hoping for the show to reclaim it’s former glory. The odd character developments, weak villains, useless flashbacks, and a grim finale only made things worse for the show. The main star Stephen Amell said recently that he would like the show to go “back to basics” for the new season. He stopped by DC All Access and touched on why fans should give the show another chance. The actor commented that there will be major shift in the status quo when we enter season five. Here’s what he said:

Of course everything is going to change. If you seen the finale, you know there is going to be a whole element for me professionally that we really haven’t seen yet, and we have been in this cycle of introducing shows for a couple of years now. Obviously Supergirl is coming to the network, but we don’t have to introduce Supergirl. I think we are going to focus a lot on just getting back to some of the stuff that Arrow does really well.

And what about Oliver’s new nemesis coming to Star City? Stephen revealed that the show’s history would be a factor on who it is. “The only thing that I can tease is that it’s only a villain we could do if we were in Season 5 of a show because it calls back to what has happened in yesteryear or yester-season as the case may be.” All we can go on about this new villain is that he’s charming and he goes by the name of Anton Church. One last detail Amell shared on this new baddie is that he doesn’t have superpowers. “As far as I know, they don’t have superpowers. I’ll tell you that.”
