Arrow is returning with its season seven premiere tomorrow night, but we have one last bit of major news surrounding the show’s new year.
Kirk Acevedo, who plays villain Ricardo Diaz, has been upgraded to a series regular for season seven. Originally introduced as a supporting foe, Diaz revealed himself as the true big bad on Arrow last season. He orchestrated the dissolution of Team Arrow, killed Quentin Lance, and forced Oliver Queen to publicly out himself as the Green Arrow.
But in an unprecedented move for Arrow, Diaz will continue to antagonize our heroes beyond one season. Normally, the big bad is either killed or locked up, and the story moves on to the next villain. However, Diaz is still out there, and he will be bringing in the Longbow Hunters as backup.
Stay tuned for more news as we have it. Arrow returns on Monday, October 15th at 8 PM EST on The CW.
