Great new for fans of Arrow and the al Ghul family. Variety has confirmed that Katrina Law will be returning to the series as Nyssa al Ghul!
The actress will return for the 16th episodes of season 6 which is titled ‘The Thanatos Guild‘. Executive Producers Marc Guggenheim and Wendy Mericle spoke with the trade about the characters return:
“In an unforgettable episode that will change Arrow forever, Katrina Law returns as the Daughter of the Demon, Nyssa al Ghul, Nyssa comes to Star City to warn of an impending danger that will threaten everything we know and love.”
Nyssa was last seen in the fifth season finale. When Lian Yu was destroyed by Prometheus her fate was left up in the air. Take this return as confirmation that Nyssa made it off the island!
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the South China Sea. Oliver returned home to Starling City, bent on righting the wrongs of his family and fighting injustice. To do this, he created the persona of The Arrow and allied himself with former military man John Diggle, computer-science expert Felicity Smoak, lawyer-turned-vigilante Laurel Lance, billionaire inventor Ray Palmer, and his sister Thea Queen.
After years of denying himself his own life as Oliver Queen in order to be The Arrow, Oliver left Starling City with Felicity and made a home in suburbia. But their newly tranquil lives are upended when an evil new organization, H.I.V.E., takes over the newly-christened Star City. Oliver is forced to don the hood once more but can he keep his aim as The Arrow without losing the life he has fought so hard to get back?
Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, Paul Blackthorne as Quentin Lance. It was recently announced that original series star Katie Cassidy will return as a series regular in season 6 as the Earth-2 Laurel Lance/Black Siren.
Arrow airs on The CW Thursdays at 9/8c. In the UK the show airs on Sky One on Thursdays at 9pm.
