Sydelle Noel To Join Arrow Season Six
Sydelle Noel, star of Netflix series Glow and the upcoming Black Panther, has been cast in a recurring role in season six of Arrow.
Noel will be playing FBI Agent Samanda Watson, who has come to Star City to investigate the possible connection between Mayor Oliver Queen and Green Arrow. Her character has been described as 'intelligent and poised with a no nonsense attitude'.
Following season five's mission statement of wanting to bring the show back to basics, with a bigger focus on crime within Star City and a more grounded villain, the addition of a character actively investigating the Green Arrow certainly helps to recapture some of the feel of the early seasons.
Mar Guggenheim, Executive Producer on Arrow, has said that the series is trying to make a concerted effort to bring more female characters into the show, and the Arrowverse on a whole. This season will also see the return of Katie Cassidy to the cast, and the promotion of Juliana Harkavy to series regular.
Season six of Arrow is scheduled for release October 12th.
