Last season of Arrow was praised by fans due to the season’s main villain Prometheus. CBR reported some information on how the showrunners Marc Guggenheim and Wendy Mericle plan to top Prometheus. Guggenheim said this:
“How do we top Prometheus? I ask myself that question every day. I’m a big believer that you always try to swing for the fences. At the same time, the more you make it about the fence swinging the more you take your eye off the ball. I think a big part of Arrow is, every year to varying degrees we always put the characters through some kind of grinder. What made Prometheus’ character — apart from Josh [Segura’s] incredible performance — was we really put Oliver through the meat grinder.”
Mericle added this snippet:
“It’s going to be the biggest of all big bads, I can say that.”
Guggenheim responded with this:
“I’m going to be very cagey about that one, sorry. We’ve got some pretty cool meat grinder moments planned for the season. Hopefully we’ll be here next year and you guys will be asking, ‘How do you top so and so?’ The big creative choice that we made was, this year, the consequences have to be felt not just by Oliver but by the entire team. That’s a big part of the engine that drives Season 6.”
Arrow season 6 will premiere on October 12, 2017.
