Stephen Amell will return to the Arrowverse ahead of the ninth and final season of The Flash – and provide a fitting end to the CW’s shared superhero universe. Amell, who has starred in eight episodes of The Flash since the spin-off launched in 2014, will reprise his role as vigilante superhero Oliver Queen/Green Arrow in Episode 909 of The Flash.
The 41-year-old Canadian actor will star alongside other returning legacy stars, including David Ramsey (John Diggle/Spartan), Keiynan Lonsdale (Wally West/Kid Flash), and Sendhil Ramamurthy (Ramsey Rosso/Bloodwork). “As soon as our final season was announced, we knew we wanted Stephen to come back and reprise his iconic role as Oliver Queen,” said Eric Wallace, an executive producer on The Flash, courtesy of a report from Deadline.
“After all, it was Oliver who originally launched Barry Allen on his heroic path. That’s why everyone on Team Flash felt so strongly that it was important to create a full-circle moment with Oliver’s return in the final season of The Flash.”
“The result is an epic-yet-emotional episode we hope Arrowverse fans will enjoy. It’s all to say “thank you” to everyone for watching and supporting our show throughout nine wonderful years. We absolutely cannot wait for everyone to see Grant and Stephen saving the world together again. And yes, there will be thrills, chills and tears.”
The Flash stars Barry Allen as the titular lightning-powered speedster, Candice Patton, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh, Jesse L. Martin, Danielle Nicolet, and Kayla Compton.
