Arrow Season 3 to Introduce New Love Interest, Rival, Mentor

by at .  Updated at . Comments

We're still months away from the premiere of Arrow Season 3, but TV Line has given fans a reason to be extra excited for this show's October return.

Four reasons, actually, to be precise.

The CW has sent out casting notices for a quartet of new roles, with upcoming recurring players set to serve as a love interest for Felicity, a foe for Oliver and a lot more.

Fans will get to know the following new characters this fall:

  • DANIEL: A handsome entrepreneur who is working on groundbreaking technology and who is hiding a tragic past. He becomes a love interest for Felicity, a rival for Oliver… and a new superhero. (NOTE: this name could be a temporary placeholder.)
  • SETH: Intelligent criminal who specializes in chemistry. He drains his enemies of their power via a special drug and, physically, is on par with the Arrow.
  • TOSHI: Will be seen via flashbacks to Hong Kong. Will serve as Oliva’s teacher, friend and handler and will be a loyal father/husband who is a well-trained in combat.
  • AKIKO: Toshi’s wife and another of Oliver’s caretakers in Hong Kong. No fighting slouch herself.

Got any casting suggestions for these roles?

Diggle: I see you brought your plus one.
Ray: Nice to meet you. Ray Palmer.
