As if the fallout of the explosive fifth season finale was not enough, Oliver Queen will have to face scrutiny from the Federal Bureau of Investigation in the upcoming season of Arrow.
Sydelle Noel has been cast as FBI agent Samanda Watson, who will be digging into the connection between Oliver Queen and the Green Arrow. Variety reports that Arrow‘s producers have described Agent Watson as “intelligent and poised with a no nonsense attitude,” so we can be sure Oliver and his team will have their hands full this season.
You may recognize Noel from her role as Cherry “Junk Chain” Bang in Netflix’s GLOW, and she will portray one of the Dora Milaje in Marvel’s Black Panther, set to be released in 2018.

Arrow – After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy). Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his relationship with each member of his “family”. Based on the characters from DC, ARROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros.
