16 February 2017 12:17 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Stay tuned.On Arrow, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was ship-wrecked on a remote island in the South China Sea and presumed dead for five years. He returned home a changed man, bent on righting the wrongs of his family and fighting injustice. Other characters in season five are played by Katie Cassidy, Willa Holland, David Ramsey, Paul Blackthorne, Emily Bett Rickards, Echo Kellum, Josh Segarra, John Barrowman, and Colton Haynes.The ratings are typically the best indication of a show's likelihood of staying on the air.

'Arrow' EPs Open Up About Tackling Gun Violence and Wild Dog's Origin Story in Issue-Driven Episode

15 February 2017 6:00 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Warning: Spoiler alert! Do not proceed if you haven’t watched Wednesday’s episode of Arrow.

This week’s Arrow dove deep into the controversial issue of gun control and public safety, using a shooting at City Hall to pull Oliver (Stephen Amell) into a political minefield and giving him the opportunity to try and save his city as its mayor, rather than the masked vigilante Green Arrow.

According to executive producer Marc Guggenheim, the episode, titled “Spectre of the Gun,” is something he’s been wanting to tackle in the Arrow-verse for quite some time.

“We went into season five wanting to do an episode about an issue,” Guggenheim told reporters on Monday. “I grew up in a time where it was commonplace -- literally, every week -- for a one-hour drama to tackle the issues of the day. Somewhere along the line, we got away from that.”

How ‘Arrow’ Producers Tackled the Gun Violence Debate

15 February 2017 11:33 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

This week’s episode of “Arrow” will feel a bit different.

The show’s latest installment titled “Spectre of the Gun,” which airs Wednesday, tackles the highly-controversial topic of gun control. The conversation in the episode begins after a masked man shoots up the Star City mayor’s office with many of the show’s main character’s inside. Following a press screening of the episode that Variety attended, executive producer Marc Guggenheim said they had wanted to do an episode like this for awhile.

“We went into Season 5 wanting to do an episode about an issue,” he said. “I grew up on ‘St. Elsewhere’ and ‘Picket Fences’ and ‘L.A. Law,’ and I grew up in a time where it was commonplace for a one-hour drama to tackle some of the issues of the day. Somewhere along the line the industry got away from that.”

Guggenheim cited shows like “Black-ish” and “The Carmichael Show” that continue to »

Talia Al Ghul Confronts Oliver Queen In These New Images From Next Week’s Arrow

28 January 2017 3:06 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Last week’s episode of Arrow concluded with Oliver Queen being saved by Talia al Ghul after he’d earned the wrath of the Bratva in season 5’s flashbacks. She now looks set to aid him in his mission to take down Constantin Kovar, though it’s important to note that it’s been mentioned in the present day that she must have played a role in training Prometheus.

That means Talia knows the villain’s identity, so chances are she’ll show up in Star City at some point. Considering the fact that Green Arrow is married to her sister Nyssa and killed her father, it’s hard to imagine that being a meeting which will go particularly well.

For more on what to expect from this episode of Arrow – titled “Second Chances” – here’s the official synopsis courtesy of The CW:

The Hunt For A New Black Canary Begins In First Look At Next Week’s Arrow

25 January 2017 7:43 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Well, that was…disappointing? Tonight’s episode of Arrow was by no means bad, but the reveal that the Laurel Lance who returned in the midseason premiere was actually Earth-2’s Black Siren was underwhelming, to say the least. Sure, the door was left open for her to find redemption, but it appears as if we can forget about seeing the Black Canary in The CW series.

Instead, Oliver Queen is going to hunt down someone else to take over the mantle, and that will seemingly be the woman we met in the episode’s final few minutes. We have no idea who she actually is, but she has powers very similar to Black Siren, a strange coincidence and a potentially hard pill for fans of Laurel to swallow if she does end up joining Team Arrow.

‘Arrow’ Producer Teases Laurel’s Return, Introducing Talia al Ghul Ahead of Midseason Premiere

25 January 2017 11:23 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

By the end of “Arrow’s” midseason finale, Team Arrow had taken quite a few licks. Diggle (David Ramsey) had been apprehended by the law after spending the first half of the season as a fugitive, Felicity’s (Emily Bett Rickards) boyfriend was killed, and Curtis (Echo Kellum) was given an ultimatum by his husband. The one light at the end of the tunnel was Oliver (Stephen Amell) finding Laurel (Katie Cassidy) had returned after being killed by Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) last season.

Variety spoke with executive producer Wendy Mericle about Laurel’s return, the team’s current state, and more…

What kind of condition is Team Arrow in when the season starts back up?

With the death of Detective Malone (Tyler Ritter) at Oliver’s hand, they aren’t happy. That said, at the end of the season we saw Laurel come back which has given them a small ray of sunshine. Coming »

First Trailer for Netflix's Film 'Girlfriend's Day' Starring Bob Odenkirk

17 January 2017 2:20 PM, PST | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I hate optimistic people. They bum me out with their upbeat attitude." Netflix has unveiled a trailer for a dark comedy called Girlfriend's Day, co-written by and starring Bob Odenkirk as a greeting card writer. The wacky plot involves Odenkirk getting entangled in a web of murder and deceit as writers vie to create the perfect card for a new holiday: Girlfriend's Day. It's described as a "clever and quirky story about love, loss and the worst place to get a paper cut." The full cast includes Amber Tamblyn, Natasha Lyonne, Ed Begley Jr, Stacy Keach, Rich Sommer, June Diane Raphael, Andy Richter, Stephanie Courtney and Echo Kellum. This looks much darker and weirder than expected, but I'm not so sure about this one. Here's the trailer (+ poster) for Michael Paul Stephenson's Girlfriend's Day, from Netflix's YouTube: Ever wonder who penned the perfect words to the Mother's Day card you sent last year? »
