Arrow renewed for season2 CW Renews Arrow for Season 2: Who Should Appear?

It may not come as a shock for the many devoted fans of the CW’s epic vigilante drama Arrow – but the network is pleased to announce that the show has received an early season 2 picked up. Along with Arrow the CW has also confirmed the renewal of two of their other heavy TV hitters.

Arrow has been a rating dominator for The CW and currently sits as the network’s most watched series. Arrow also debuted as the CWs highest premiered show since The Vampire Diaries in fall 2009.

CW president Mark Pedowitz, released a statement about his excitement for the series’ early renewal by saying:

“We said last year that one of our goals was to establish building blocks to grow on, and now with our new hit Arrow and fan favorite Supernatural on Wednesday night, and the continued success of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, we’ve been able to do that. Not only do Arrow, Supernatural, and The Vampire Diaries perform well on-air, they’re also extremely successful for us both digitally and socially. I’m thrilled to have all three shows returning to our schedule next season.”

For those unfamiliar with Arrow – where have you been? The series stars Stephen Amell as billionaire playboy Oliver Queen, who after spending five years shipwrecked on an island of the South China Sea, returns home to his beloved Starling City to get rid of the ever-growing criminal element that has slowly infested its streets.  Based on DC Comics’ emerald archer, Green Arrow – Arrow features a host of well-known comic book characters brought to life, including the Huntress, Firefly and Deathstroke the Terminator.

Most recent comic addition to the series will be Roy Harper played by former Teen Wolf star Colton Haynes. The original DC version of Harper started off as Green Arrow’s young sidekick Speedy, but as teen sidekicks often do, Roy grew up and took on a solo act following a confrontation with Green Arrow over Harper’s problematic heroin addiction.

With all the comic book characters already featured in season 1, the burning question of just who else might pop by Startling City is front and center. While the CW is keeping quiet for now, many are speculating that it’s only a matter of time before Queen’s superhero buddy Hal Jordan, the Green Lantern makes an appearance. Series developer Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim (who also co-wrote the Green Lantern film) have a no superpower rule for the Arrow TV series (as of right now at least) – but that doesn’t rule out Jordan’s appearance minus the fancy ring.

Another DC big-shot spinning around the rumor mill is none other than Bruce Wayne. While Batman seems nearly out of the question, the Waynes and Queens run in the same social circles and have often interacted in-and-out of spandex in the comics, so the idea of playboy verse playboy may not be too farfetched.

  1. when will season 2 start ??

    • It starts in July first week..

      • when will season 2 be released ??

        • Season 1 premiered on October 10th, so it’s likely that season 2 will premiere around the same time. CW shows tend to have October premiere dates. No clue why.

    • Can i just say the producers of arrow have said they would like to keep super powers out of the show as they would like to keep it semi-realistic so i dont think there will be clark kent unless they run out of ideas

      • They are gonna have the flash

    • Arrow season 2 is set to air on september 23rd 2013 which is around the same time that season 1 box set comes out

      • september 23rd is my birthday, how nice haha. anyways i agree with keeping the show semi realistic and try to keep superpowers off the show

  2. I’m looking forward to Laurel as the ‘Black Canary’ but I’m also quite excited for Roy Harper to develop into ‘Red Arrow’.

    • Oh my gosh! Me too!!! I seriously am looking forward to the next season which will hopefully elave me at the edge of my seat every time!

      • leave* sorry

  3. Am I the only one who wants to see the Flash and Kid Flash on this show?


  5. Would prefer to see Nightwing. Bruce Wayne/Batman might steal to much of the spotlight, and i dont think it would realistic if bruce didn´t take charge. I Beleive Grayson and Queen would work better as partners in an episode.

    • Yeah it would be awesome if nightwing came in the show!!!! I mean they’ve mentioned bludhaven at least three times

  6. Am I the only one who wants Oliver and Felicity to hook up??

    • Oliver and Velicity…. :) f*ck Loral she’s ugly lol

    • I also want Oliver and felicity to hook up.

    • I also want them to hook up

    • I agree she is so into him. And the chemistry is definitely there.

  7. I’d like to see Laurel as Black Canary :)

  8. I would like to see bruce wayne and nightwing in season 2

  9. Why The hell would you put Batman season 2 he would steal the spotlight and it would be unrealistic. If I see Batman i’m not even going to think about watching Arrow again.

    • I agree Batman would destroy Arrow….

      • Can you read? They specifically said Bruce Wayne, not Batman.

        • Well when you hear or see Bruce Wayne your first thought is Batman. But what you say is true.

  10. Supergirl!!!

  11. felicity is black canary cause they’re both blonde anybody realize that

    • Dinah Laurel Lance is Black Canary’s real name, did you realize that? 😛

      • But how will Laurel get the super power.

        • Since the late 1960s, the character has often been paired romantically and professionally with the archer superhero Green Arrow. As introduced during the Golden Age of Comic Books, the Black Canary was the alter-ego of Dinah Drake, and took part in crime-fighting adventures alongside her love interest and eventual husband, Gotham City detective Larry Lance. The Black Canary did not possess superpowers, but was a hand-to-hand fighter who frequently posed as a criminal in order to covertly take down criminal organisations. She also featured as a member of the Justice Society of America, the first superhero team to appear in comic books. Later stories, published during the Silver Age of Comic Books, depicted the Black Canary as a world-class martial artist with a superpower — the “Canary Cry” — a high powered sonic scream that could shatter objects and incapacitate enemies. DC Comics later twice adjusted its continuity; firstly to explain the two character versions as existing in distinct parallel universes, and later to depict them as mother and daughter (Dinah Drake becoming the mother of Dinah Laurel Lance). Stories since then have primarily focused on the younger Black Canary, ascribing her abilities to a genetic mutation. In 2011, DC Comics relaunched its continuity, and in the process re-established Black Canary as a singular superpowered heroine, Dinah Lance (née Drake).

  12. There is many things floating around. I just hope the show doesn’t get canceled. The shows started with over 4 million viewers and is now down to a little over 2.7 million. I want this show to be like Smallville. Last for nearly 10 seasons. I also hope that the show will last long enough for Oliver and Clark Kent to actually meet. That would be a nice addition down the road.

  13. i want to see Roy Harper became the red arrow but at the end of season 2 or beginning of season 3

  14. Who will start the second arrow

  15. My prediction would be Brickwell to appear in season 2. Seems reasonable enough.

  16. I want Roy to develop into Speedy, his motivation for choosing that name would come from Thea, but then about halfway through the season or more towards the end, he breaks off and becomes Red Arrow. I also think that they could play around some with Brick, Sportsmaster, and Cheshire as some more villians.

  17. Really, guys? The series is already FULL of superheroes + villains, some of whom haven’t come out yet really, or at all. It’s like a Where’s Waldo of DC characters. It’s cluttered. Resolve Black Canary, Arsenal, Slade/Deathstroke, Shadow, Deadshot and Huntress first (did I miss anyone?), before throwing any more into the already overflowing pot. Is Merlyn dead for real?

    • Fully agree with all you said. That Deadshot survived the arrow-to-the-eye nearly made me stop watching. Also the proliferation of people that knew Oliver was The Hood. The best thing that happened in the final episode of Season 1 (if Merlyn stays dead) is that this list has decreased by two.

  18. I love the cw i cant get enough the shows r so great i make sure i work the early shifts so i can watch

  19. just remember that batman, green arrow, Hal Jordan, superman have all been published in comics (justice league) together so eny of these characters can come into the story, and in my opinion I’d love to see batman or the green lantern

  20. if huntress returns again this time she’s not alone she brought question the conspiracy theorist they were following a lead about something involving merlyn, slade, or any green arrow villain

  21. It’s a super series “Arrow”… can’t wait to get hold of season 2…

  22. i loved Arrow very much

  23. It’ll be really exciting to see Batman in Arrow since they are very similar in what they do and what they want to do. Also, since Batman doesn’t kill, Oliver can get some advice from Batman/Bruce.

    Loving Season 2 so far 😀

  24. I wish the guy Roy didn’t die because he could be red arrow.
