During yesterday’s Arrow panel at the San Diego Comic-Con, The CW released the first trailer for the sixth season of the DC superhero show, while it was also confirmed that David Nykl will be returning to the role of Oliver Queen’s friend-turned-foe Anatoly Knyazev and that Person of Interest and Lost star Michael Emerson has been cast in the show in an unrevealed role – although IMDb has his character listed as Richard Dragon, rumoured to be the main villain in season six. Watch the trailer below…
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’.
