DC Television’s long-running Arrow will be heading into its 5th season this fall as the show about Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) a.k.a. the Green Arrow, which has helped launch The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl, will feature a lot of new changes, new members and more. The show will also be celebrating its 100th episode with 5.08 which will also be coinciding with the 4-show crossover between The Flash, Supergirl and Legends of Tomorrow.
At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, TV Overmind participated inÂ the ArrowÂ Press Room with several outlets to chat with the cast and crew behind the show to get some insight into what is coming in Season 5. David Ramsey, who plays John Diggle, was one of the great talents we spoke with as he teased what’s happening in the 5th season and what’s coming up for Diggle.
Highlights of the interview:
-What he hopes to see in the 100th episode of the series, while taking place in the 4-show crossover.
-Having to lose Laurel Lance a.k.a. the Black Canary as it was one of the most difficult and emotional scenes for him to shoot.
-Diggle getting a new helmet as the previous one caused some problematics for the actor.
-The new progression in the partnership between Oliver and Diggle this season.
