Kirk Acevedo has joined Season Six of “Arrow” as the new villain, Ricardo Diaz (AKA Richard Dragon).
“Ricardo Diaz/Richard Dragon, is a classic bad guy from the Green Arrow comics. He’s “a hardened ex-con recently released from prison for crimes he didn’t commit,”and is also “bent on taking over Star City’s criminal underworld. A master in hand to hand combat, honed by years of life on the street, Diaz has yet to meet a foe he can’t take down.”
The CW Network has officially announced a premiere date for the sixth season of Arrow!
The Arrow Season 6 premiere will air on Thursday, October 12th, 2017 at 9 PM ET/PT & 8 PM CT following Supernatural.
“Arrow” will presumably return in October, airing on a new night, Thursdays at 9/8c.
“The CW has just released its fall schedule and while everything looks normal for the channel’s DC properties, including The Flash and Legends Of Tomorrow, Arrow has been moved to a new night and time slot for the first time ever. The superhero TV series has been airing on Wednesday nights at 8 P.M. since the show debuted in 2012. Now, it looks like the fresh new show, Riverdale, has taken its spot and Arrow has been moved to Thursday nights at 9 P.M. Lastly, Black Lightning is missing because it will premiere in the winter just like Legends of Tomorrow did back in 2016.”
