In just a few months, fans of the CW series Arrow will return to Star City. On Thursday afternoon, the CW announced the Season 6 premiere date of Arrow, scheduled for Thursday, October 12 at 9 p.m. Eastern. The series, moving from its usual Wednesday slot, will follow the hit action show Supernatural, which is about to enter its 40th season or something.
The announcement of Arrow came alongside the premiere dates of the other Arrowverse shows, including Supergirl, The Flash, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Supergirl premieres at 8 p.m. on October 9 while The Flash and Legends will play back-to-back on October 10 starting at 8 p.m. Also announced were the premiere dates for Supernatural and Riverdale, the teen mystery drama inspired by the Archie comic books.
Last season, Arrow returned to its gritty roots by doing away with supernatural villains. Prometheus, played by Josh Segarra, was a villain born out of Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) actions from the past five years of the show. Prometheus seeks revenge against the Green Arrow, and pulls out all the stops as he tears Team Arrow apart.
The season also saw new recruits, including the gun-toting Wild Dog (Rick Gonzalez), the super-brainy Curtis (Echo Kellum) as Mr. Terrific, and for a brief time, the bow-wielding Artemis (Madison McLaughlin) and Ragman (Joe Dinicol). Season 5 also featured Arrow’s 100th episode, which took place during the “Invasion!” crossover with the other CW shows, which had Melissa Benoist and Grant Gustin guest star as Supergirl and The Flash, respectively.
Arrow will return on October 12.
