To some degree, I don’t think we see a lot of characters enjoying their super powers the same way that you and I would. I think it’s great to see the drama of characters burdened by that which separates them from society, but there’s also the idea that many people solely enjoy and celebrate every day that which makes them different instead of being fearful or angsty or regretful.” Based on the DC Comics team of the same name, the series sees police detective Dick Grayson find a supernaturally powered girl named Raven.

WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for the Season 7 premiere of , “Inmate 4587,” which aired Monday October 15 on The CW. Not long after Season 6 of Arrow concluded, it was announced that Colton Haynes was returning to the series as a regular member of the cast for Season 7. Haynes had departed the CW series midway through its third season, and had made sporadic guest appearances throughout subsequent seasons. However, this marked the first time in four years that the actor was now back to series regular status — something that obviously had a lot of fans excited for his return. What was even more intriguing was the fact that no one in the Arrow production team would tell us what Roy’s role in Season 7 would be. Even more mysterious, the character was nowhere to be seen in the trailers, promos and posters hyping the premiere of the season. Finally, the mystery was put to bed last Monday when the new season of Arrow premiered. At the close of the episode, we discovered that part of the story was now being told in flash-foward form — Oliver Queen’s son , and he has traveled to the island of Lian Yu where he meets . RELATED: In the episode itself, we only caught a brief glimpse of Arsenal in the dark, but what little we saw confirmed that he was still skilled in archery and wearing a superhero costume. Well now, thanks to a new picture from the set of Arrow, we have a clear look at future Roy’s costume. just cast Older William as a series Regular this year. And the showrunner said the new "Flash Forwards" will be a thing in every future season of the show until it goes off the air — Charlie Schneider (@AwesomEmergency) As we can see, Arsenal’s costume still looks like the old one he used to wear back when he was the Arrow’s partner fighting crime in Star City. However, it looks considerably worn and torn, and the added presence of a black combat vest makes us wonder how long Roy has been sequestered on the island. When Roy left town in Season 3, he bequeathed his uniform to Thea Queen, who has since left the series. This means that, somehow, in the future, Roy gets his old costume back, and finds himself on Lian Yu. But why? We’ll just have to keep watching to find out. RELATED: Airing Mondays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW, Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, Rick Gonzalez as Wild Dog, Echo Kellum as Mr. Terrific, Juliana Harkavy as Black Canary and Katie Cassidy as Black Siren.

RELATED: More pictures later surfaced, revealing that Amell and Gustin were both also on the set of Clark Kent’s Kansas homestead. And now, it appears we have confirmation that this location is, in and of itself, a bit of a crossover with the fan-favorite teen Superman series, Smallville. In fact, it was confirmed on Twitter that, if the location seems familiar to fans, it’s because it is the exact same farmhouse that was featured in the Tom Welling-starring series. fans: It looks like a familiar house will be seen in this year's crossover… they're going to the "real" Kent Farm! — KryptonSite (@KryptonSite) Does this mean that the Arrowverse will finally be crossing over with Smallville, something that fans have been hoping for for a long time? Probably not. But it’s still interesting to note that the Smallville Kent house itself is so iconic that there was no need to find another to replace it. Whatever is going on in “Elseworlds,” it should be an unexpected treat for fans to see the full breadth of the Arrowverse superheroes, from Green Arrow and The Flash to Supergirl, pay visit to such an iconic location.

The Conners showrunner Bruce Helford has explained why the series chose to kill off Rosanne Barr’s character with a prescription drug overdose. Roseanne returned to television in 2017 to strong ratings, but Barr’s racist statements on Twitter in May of 2018 got the show canceled by ABC.

But back in the writers room, we firmly decided against anything cowardly or far-fetched, anything that would make the fierce matriarch of the Conners seem pathetic or debased.” Helford also saw the decision as an opportunity to explore a serious topic; the rise of opioid-related deaths in America. “I wanted a respectful sendoff for her, too: One that was relevant and could inspire discussion for the greater good about the American working class, whose authentic problems are often ignored by broadcast television,” said Helford. “If you watched the first episode, I hope you’ll agree we did that.” RELATED: For her part, Roseanne Barr for the way her character was written off the show.
