‘Arrow’ season 5: Premiere date speculation and the future for CW series

See Oliver -

Tonight, the fourth season of “Arrow” is going to be concluding on The CW, but as many diehard fans likely know at this point, this is far from the end of the road for the series. It was renewed several weeks ago for a fifth season, and we’d be willing to wager there is much more where that comes from. This show remains one of the network’s most-valuable shows and properties, even if it does sag behind “The Flash” in the ratings.

So when will we see Stephen Amell and the rest of the cast assemble once more? In terms of filming, we imagine that it is probably going to be at some point in July when everyone gets back in action once more. That could change, but we’re just going based on similar patterns for the past.

As for a premiere date, our easiest guess is that the new season will be back come early October, given that this is when it has started up in the past, as well! The CW is keeping it in its Wednesday night timeslot at 8:00 p.m. Eastern. Really, the only thing that has changed is that it is now being paired with “Frequency,” the new adaptation of the feature film, rather than “Supernatural.” That show is heading to Thursdays, and is now going to air after “Legends of Tomorrow.”

We’ll hopefully have more speculation story-wise soon; we’re still unsure how “Arrow” is going to circumvent a problem that is happening over on “The Flash” that shapes that story in a big way.
