Arrow: Stephen Amell Teases 'New and Exciting Characters' in Season 7

Stephen Amell in Arrow

The CW's flagship superhero series Arrow has spared no expense when it comes to introducing characters from DC Comics lore to the small screen. In fact, according to Oliver Queen/Green Arrow actor Stephen Amell, Season 7 looks to be no different.

“I think that you will see some very, very new and exciting characters in season seven; characters that have a canon in DC,” Amell said in an interview with The Music. “And I think that we will continue to do what we’ve always done on this show, which I’m very, very proud of, which is create some new characters. Hopefully, long after I’m done playing Arrow – whenever that may be – hopefully we’ll carry on in the DC universe."

Which characters Amell may be alluding to remains a mystery. However, it's also interesting to note that he mentions the addition of more original characters. Perhaps the most successful original character the show spawned is David Ramsey's John Diggle, who's since transcended the medium and become something of a staple in the Green Arrow ongoing comic book series.

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.
