Things are not looking so bright for Oliver Queen as he kicks off Season 7 of Arrow having just agreed to a plea deal with the FBI to protect the rest of his team. He has publicly admitted he is Green Arrow and pleaded guilty to a number of charges. The season ended with Oliver about to enter the supermax prison known as The Slab, where he will be in the same prison with a bunch of criminals that he put away as Green Arrow.
However, while things are not so cheery for Oliver Queen, the cast of Arrow is in a great mood as they celebrate the beginning of production on Season 7!
The Arrow Writers Room tweeted out a photo of Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen), Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak), David Ramsey (John Diggle) and Echo Kellum (Curtis Holt) celebrating the first table read of the season.
It must be good for fans to see the "Original Team Arrow" together again, even if it is just for a cast photo.
Since this is a celebration, there was, of course, also cake involved.
This is a major season in the Arrowverse, as it is the first season for new showrunner Beth Schwartz, the show is moving to Mondays at 8pm and Stephen Amell has said that he would like this season to be written as if it there is no guarantee that there will be a Season 8. So it is nice that they can start it all off with some cake.
Returning this fall to The CW, Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, Rick Gonzalez as Wild Dog, Echo Kellum as Mr. Terrific, Juliana Harkavy as Black Canary and Katie Cassidy as Black Siren.
