"Arrow" Season 4 finale is right around the corner and actor Stephen Amell is already looking forward to filming the show's fifth season.
Speaking to Variety last week at the CW Upfront in New York City, Amell talked about the next season, teasing a new villain (of course) and how the team plans to take the show back to its roots.
"I've heard that our big bad, our villain, is something that you can really only do once you're in the fifth, sixth or seventh season of a TV show," Amell said. When asked if he knew more details, Amell teased, "I do," but didn't offer to spill anything more. But, he did give a little hint: "As far as I know, they don't have superpowers. I'll tell you that."
The actor also added that the upcoming Season 5 will not have the additional responsibility of introducing other superhero shows -- which was the case with earlier seasons with the makers using The CW's flagship show "Arrow" to help launch "The Flash" and "Legends of Tomorrow."
"'Supergirl' is coming, but we don't have to introduce a new show next year. In Season 2, it was the introduction of 'The Flash' and crossovers there, and last year there was a lot with 'Legends of Tomorrow,' and we don't have to do that this year because 'Supergirl' is already established," Amell said. "So I would like to focus on a lot of the stuff that I think 'Arrow' does very well."
The "Arrow" Season 4 finale airs on Wednesday, May 25, at 8 p.m. on The CW.
