Arrow season 6 has cast Lucifer’s Liam Hall as Slade Wilson’s son
Back in July at the Arrow panel at San Diego Comic-Con, executive producer Marc Guggenheim teased flashbacks for characters other than Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell). “Manu Bennett is back,” as Slade Wilson a/k/a Deathstroke, Guggenheim reminded the audience, “and one of the stories I’m most looking forward to is a two-parter where we will flashback to Slade’s past.” As it turns out, we’re getting a look at Slade Wilson’s son, who will be played by Liam Hall (Camp, Lucifer), according to EW.
Liam Hall will play Joe Wilson, who joined the secret Australian military agency A.S.I.S. He’s now on a remote Kasnian prison under the name Kane Wolfman and reportedly fighting for his life. As you may recall, Oliver promised information on Joe Wilson in the finale of Season 6 of the show.
Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, 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. The series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter.
Based on the DC characters, the series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg, Wendy Mericle and Sarah Schechter. Arrow is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
Arrow, which formerly aired Wednesday nights at 8:00pm ET/PT on The CW, will move to Thursday nights at 9:00pm ET/PT when Season 6 premieres October 12.
