Arrow Season 4 cast continues to grow
With production chugging away at season four of The CW’s “Arrow,” two more have joined the show’s ever growing cast. Entertainment Tonight brings word that “Enlisted” star Parker Young has joined the series as a potential love interest for Willa Holland’s Thea Queen, while TheWrap reports that “True Blood” and “Hannibal” star Rutina Wesley has signed for a multi-episode arc.
“Arrow” stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, Katie Cassidy as Dinah “Laurel” Lance, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, John Barrowman as Malcom Merlyn, with Paul Blackthorne as Detective Lance. Wesley and Young also join the recently announced Echo Kellum as Curtis Holt aka Mr. Terrific, Alexander Calvert as Anarky, Jimmy Akingbola, Jeri Ryan, Ryan Robbins, JR Bourne, and Neal McDonough as big bad Damien Darhk. The series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter.
After defeating his most formidable foe to date and riding off into the sunset with longtime flame Felicity Smoak, Oliver Queen (a.k.a. The Arrow) left Starling City with the hopes of beginning a new life. But will Oliver ever truly be able to leave behind his past as the Arrow, and, if so, what becomes of the team he has worked so hard to assemble? Will Diggle, Thea, and Laurel be left to continue Oliver’s crusade without him? And with Malcolm Merlyn having ascended to the top of the League of Assassins as the new Ra’s al Ghul, is anyone really safe? “Arrow” will premiere its fourth season on Wednesday, October 7 at 8:00pm ET/PT.
