There are two things that come with every new season of Arrow. First, the opening credits. Oliver may start out with ‘My Name is Oliver Queen’ at each season, but what follows has been different with every season that passes. Along with a new introduction, comes a new title card – and we got our first look at it tonight!
Rather than just a mere symbol of an arrowhead, the title card shows a series of symbols which relate to each team member – very similar to what DC’s Legends of Tomorrow does!

In a recent interview with Comicbook.com, Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim stated that they will continue to surprise fans, despite the fact that today’s society loves posting Internet Spoilers. Some of these changes may be incredibly simple, while others range along a more ‘surprisingly drastic’ scale:
“Going into season six, we only have so much energy and bandwidth to dedicate towards the preserving its surprises. That’s not to say that we don’t care about surprises — we totally do, and we’re always trying. There’s stuff coming up to season where we’re taking people’s names out of credits, we’re issuing false script pages, we’re issuing false casting breakdowns. We’re still doing our thing to try to keep the surprises intact, but it’s a little hard to do. I also think that we live in a world where if you really, truly, desperately want to know something, there are means of finding out. And if you want to not be spoiled…well that’s a lot easier.”
Issuing false cast breakdowns seems so teasing that it is almost cruel! I mean, I understand why though. We live in a world of spoilers… and they did an amazing job with the Adrian Chase reveal last year. It’s the oldest trick in the book. Get the audience looking in one direction and focusing on one theory, while the writers are working on something completely different in the background.
Arrow airs on Thursdays at 9PM/EST on The CW.
