Arrow Season 7: Three New Villains Cast!

at .

When Arrow returns for Season 7, there will be some big changes in store. 

For a start, Oliver Queen will be incarcerated for being the vigilante, and that means he will come face-to-face with some of the people he helped put inside.

While Oliver is facing the music on the inside, his team will be put in some disastrous situations on the outside. There's a no-vigilante rule in Star City, meaning Team Arrow is essentially defunct. 

Holly Elissa 2

But that won't stop the Longbow Hunters who have been sent on a mission by Diaz to exact revenge on everyone close to Oliver. 

Who will be playing the Longbow Hunters, you ask? 

First up is Red Dart, who will be played by Holly Elissa. She is described as "a ruthless and precise killer."

That does not bode well for the team, and we're actually starting to think that Oliver should get out of prison quickly to help save their lives. 

Elissa has previously appeared on the likes of Fringe and Supernatural. 

Miranda Edwards

Next up is Silencer, and she will be played by Miranda Edwards. She is described as "a master of stealth" which will bode well for her when she sets off on her mission to avenge Diaz. 

In all honesty, it's scary to think about what intel she can find out about the key players. If she's that quiet, she's going to be listening for everything, reporting back to the others and then striking when we least expect it.

With a lot of contracts up at the end of Season 7, could the real reason for these new characters be that it will make it easy to reduce the budget of the show for Season 8?

We kid, mostly, but stranger things have happened.

The final new addition to the cast is Michael Jonsson as Kodia, "a beast of a man with brute force." 

Yeah, we don't like Team Arrow's chances, but if these new villains can teach them a thing or two about loyalty, I may just side with the villains on this one occasion. 

What are your thoughts on these new additions?

Arrow Quotes

You have failed this universe!

Oliver

The Oliver that I met eight years ago is not the one we say goodbye to today. Oliver always told me that in order to save his city, he had to become someone else, he had to become something else. I always thought that meant becoming the Green Arrow, but today I realized that meant becoming a better man. The best man he knew how to be, and he took all of us with him on that journey. He changed everything. Oliver brought heroes into the world, he inspired heroes. He inspired all of us here. I was his brother. And Oliver Queen was mine. Of course, life will go on. It always does. But how, with twists and turns it will take, I can't say. I don't know what the future holds, except to say expect the unexpected. Oliver may be gone, but his mission endures. That mission lives on, Oliver lives on in the people he inspired. Some will take that mission to the rest of the world, maybe even beyond that. Because if the past eight years have shown us anything, it's that this universe is far bigger than any of us could have dared imagine, even if it is a little less bright without him in it.
