We are looking forward to Arrow Season 6, because we want to see if the show can redeem itself. Yes, we’ve admitted that we weren’t particularly fond of Season 5. Hey, we’ve never been one to sugar coat it.
That’s why we’re intrigued by all castings, bits and pieces and anything that we can get our hands on for Season 5. Guggenheim has previously teased at San Diego Comic Con that Richard Dragon, a Green Arrow villain from the comic, would be coming and now we know he will be.
Kirk Acevedo has booked a season-long recurring role as Ricardo Diaz, who is based on the Richard Dragon character from the comics. Now, we’re interested to see the role that he plays in the series – because we know that the comics and the series are different.
Basically we know he was put in jail for a crime that he didn’t commit and now he’s dead set on taking over Star City’s criminal underworld. We can’t wait to see how he interacts with Oliver, because Ricardo is apparently a really great fighter and like Oliver is pretty kick ass at hand to hand combat.
Will this season put Oliver through the school of hard knocks? Arrow returns to The CW October 12.
