Arrow EP Teases The Return Of A Villain That Hasn’t Appeared Since Season 2


“Arrow” season 6 is set to premiere in the fall, and it’s been teased that we could be seeing some familiar faces from Oliver Queen’s past, and one of those characters could be the Huntress.

Marc Guggenheim recently spoke to CBR and he was asked about the possibility of Jessica De Gouw reprising her role as Helena Bertinelli. According to Guggenheim not only is she welcome back to the show, he has hopes that they can find a way to bring her back.

“I want to say, ‘Absolutely.’ Jessica De Gouw has expressed an absolute willingness to come back. Jessica’s a favorite actor of mine, and the Huntress is a favorite character of mine. I want to make it happen in Season 6. We’ve got some plans for the later half of the year that I think she will fit into really well, so we’ll see.”

Huntress hasn’t appeared on the show since the season 2 episode “Birds of Prey” but she was mentioned in a few of the following episodes.

Team Arrow will be facing multiple villains in season 6, including Richard Dragon and Oliver’s former Bratva brother Anatoly Knyazev and it’s also been teased that Team Arrow will be facing a team of villains. Perhaps Huntress can be added to the roster.

“Arrow” will return on Thursday, October 12.

After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice.

As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy).

Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his relationship with each member of his “family”.
