Arrow – Season 4 – Premiere Will Feature a Time Jump
When Arrow kicks off its fourth season this fall, viewers will find that five to six months have passed for Oliver Queen and company since the season three finale.
During a Facebook question-and-answer session, Arrow star Stephen Amell revealed that roughly half a year will have passed since Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak drove into the sunset in May.
“Time has passed,” Amell said. “Like the standard amount of time. We go in real-time, like we normally do. So, five or six months have passed since the finale.”
Wherever time took Arrow and his world, it was enough to make Amell’s jaw drop. Twice. When a fan asked Amell if his jaw dropped while reading the season four premiere’s script, Amell said it really did.
“It legitimately did,” Amell said. “I emailed [showrunner] Marc Guggenheim directly after reading the season four premiere with three or four very pointed questions. Which he answered…mostly.”
