Manu Bennett Becomes Series Regular for Season 2 of Arrow

Bennett’s character, Slade Wilson, has been an ally to Oliver Queen during his time on the island. It remains to be seen if he’ll ever become the villanous Deathstroke from the comic books or catch up with Queen in Starling City in the present, both of which could be possibilities for the second season.

Arrow‘s first season is in the home stretch now with the second season set to air this fall. It stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, Colin Donnell as Tommy, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, with Susanna Thompson as Moira Queen and Paul Blackthorne as Detective Quentin Lance. The show airs on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
