“Arrow” went out with a bang when season 5 ended in May, and the stars of the “Arrowverse” enjoyed a few weeks off, but now they’re back to work. Fans are anxiously waiting to see who might be spotted on set, as the season finale ended with a big cliffhanger.
Thanks to the nature of the cliffhanger, fans are unsure about who will be returning for the new season. So far the only characters who we know for sure we’ll be seeing when “Arrow” returns are Oliver Queen and his son William.
There’s still several months to go before we will find out who survived, but one thing that has been revealed is the title for the season premiere.
Production has begun on “Arrow” season 6, and executive producer Marc Guggenheim took to Twitter earlier today to show of a page of the script revealing that “Fallout” will be the episode title.

The five year flashback story officially concluded with the season 5 finale, but Guggenheim also revealed in a recent interview that fans will be seeing at least one more flashback sequence in the season premiere that will flash back to the island.
“Arrow” will return for season 6 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”.
