John Diggle’s Sons Face Off in the Final Season of Arrow

-

With the reappearance of The Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) in the season seven finale of Arrow, there’s no doubt that Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Team Arrow will be facing a “crisis” unlike anything they’ve previously faced before in the final season of Arrow.

The cast and producers of The CW/Warner Bros. Television’s hit DC series elaborated on what’s in store for the future in Arrow’s final season Comic-Con panel on Saturday, July 20. A sizzle reel was also shown at Comic-Con and you can now watch it below.

Following last season’s introduction of next-gen vigilantes Mia Smoak and Connor Hawke, Comic-Con fans were excited to learn of John Diggle’s other son, John Diggle, Jr., to be played by new series regular Charlie Barnett (Russian Doll). Diggle, Jr. — known as J.J. — is the Flashpoint-born son of John Diggle (David Ramsey) and Lyla Michaels (Audrey Marie Anderson). We meet J.J. in the future as the leader of the Deathstroke Gang, where he faces off against Mia and his adopted brother, Connor.

Barnett joins previously-announced new series regulars Katherine McNamara, Joseph David-Jones and Ben Lewis as Mia Smoak, Connor Hawke and Oliver Queen’s adopted son, William Clayton, respectively.

Barnett most recently starred alongside Natasha Lyonne in the Netflix series Russian Doll, as well as Tales of the City, the return of the seminal book and television series from Armistead Maupin. Also known for his roles on Chicago Fire, Secrets and Lies and Valor, the Juilliard graduate hails from Florida.

Arrow returns for its eighth and final season on October 15 in its new Tuesday 9/8c time period on The CW. Based on the DC characters, the series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Beth Schwartz, Sarah Schechter and Jill Blankenship, with Marc Guggenheim as a consulting producer. Arrow is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
