After being marooned for five years on a remote island, billionaire Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) returns home with a mysterious agenda and a lethal set of new skills that he uses in a war on crime in this hard-hitting action series. Reinventing the DC Comics character for a modern-day audience, the Arrow is not a superhero...but a hero - every bit as dangerous as the criminals he's hunting.
Following the finish for Smallville
, The CW network began airing another DC hero in his own show: Oliver Queen as Green Arrow, in a program simply called Arrow
. Besides the actor in the lead role, Stephen Amell (Private Practice, Hung
), other cast includes Katie Cassidy (Gossip Girl, Supernatural
) as "Laurel Lance," Alex Kingston (Doctor Who, ER
) as Laurel's mother "Dinah," and Susanna Thompson (The Book of Daniel, Kings
) as Oliver's mother "Moira." Guest stars have included Jamey Sheridan (Homeland, Trauma, The Stand
), John Barrowman (Torchwood, Doctor Who
) and Colin Salmon (Resident Evil, Tomorrow Never Dies
), plus Colton Haynes (Teen Wolf
) as "Roy Harper."
