With Quentin Lance’s departure Star City is bringing in a new detective.
Arrow has cast Tyler Ritter in the recurring role of Detective Malone, Star City’s newest detective, for season 5, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
With Lance’s departure from the force at the end of the season, Ritter’s Detective Malone looks to be a focal point this season as he will be the connection to the police force. While Lance may have left the force and Star City at the end of the season, he’s still a series regular and will play a significant role in the upcoming fifth season.
Ritter joins new faces Josh Segarra as a new district attorney, Walking Dead‘s Chad L. Coleman as a new villain, and Echo Kellum being promoted to series regular.
Arrow season 5 premieres Oct. 5 at 8/7c on The CW.
