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.

Caity Lotz as The Black Canary
The Canary arrives in Starling City. She doesn't take long to reveal herself to Oliver Queen as Sara Lance.

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?

Sounds like they're listening to fan suggestions on a love interest for Felicity/potential rival for Oliver (though who knows whether he'll be a rival for Oliver when it comes to Felicity or just in general). Should be good. Can't wait!
