The fifth season of Arrow is officially a thing of the past for its cast and crew. The CW series wrapped production on Season 5 over the weekend according to Rick Gonzalez.
Gonzalez, who joined Arrow as Rene Ramirez (or Wild Dog) in the current season, took to Twitter to share a photo from the final day on set of Arrow Season 5. "Season 5 is in the can," Gonzalez wrote. "This stunt team deserves a military salute emoji. Episode 19-23 is a ride. Enjoy."
Arrow has become known for its stunt choreography. Gonzalez is more than correct in saluting his team for their efforts. Most interesting, though, is his tease of what's to come in Episodes 19 through 23 of Arrow's fifth season. The run being teased kicks off this Wednesday with the Dangerous Liaisons episode.
The synopsis for Arrow Episode 5x19 reads, "Oliver, Team Arrow, A.R.G.U.S and the SCPD kick off a citywide manhunt for Adrian Chase. Helix tells Felicity they have a way to find Chase but they will need something big, and illegal, from her in return."
The CW series has been renewed for a sixth season which will kick off in the fall of 2017.
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. Oliver returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs of 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), former police captain Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne) and brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum).
Newly appointed Mayor Oliver Queen finds himself challenged as he fights on two fronts for the future of Star City. With Diggle back in the military and Thea adamant about hanging up her hood as Speedy, Team Green Arrow is down to just Oliver and Felicity – but they’re no longer the only vigilantes in town. Green Arrow’s public defeat of Damien Darhk at the end of Season Four has inspired a new crop of masked heroes to step up and defend the city, though their painful inexperience makes them obstacles, rather than allies, in the field. The arrival of a deadly new adversary will force Oliver to confront questions about his own legacy, both as mayor and as the Green Arrow.
