During The CW’s Upfront presentation earlier this week Arrow star Stephen Amell came on stage to promote the upcoming season. While ratings and viewership has dropped on the show The CW renewed the show for yet another show. And with that comes another major multi-night crossover event. Amell revealed the upcoming crossover will feature the Arrowverse finally headed to Gotham City and meeting hero Batwoman.
“We’re incredibly excited to announce that we’ll be doing another crossover event this fall on the CW, and we’ll be introducing a new character. For the very first time appearing, we’ll be fighting alongside Batwoman, which is terrific. The crossover is going to make it to air in December. I need to leave right now and start filming it.”
This is the first piece of exciting news for Arrow fans after several major changes came to the show behind the scenes. Showrunner Marc Guggenheim stepped down to focus on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Also, co-stars Willa Holland and Paul Blackthorne have both left the show.
However, it has been revealed that Colton Haynes will return next season as Roy Harper. Haynes originally left the show 2 seasons ago due to his anxiety of coming out as a gay actor. It’s still unknown if the Arrow-verse shows like The Flash or Supergirl will be connected to the upcoming shows debuting on the DC streaming service DC Universe like Titans or Doom Patrol.
