With production having just begun on the second season of The CW’s Arrow, we can expect plenty of casting announcements for the series going into the future. The first one comes today from The Hollywood Reporter that Firefly alum Summer Glau has landed a major role in the new season. Glau will take on the role of Isabel Rochev, who is described as “enigmatically beautiful” and “dangerous.” Her character will work for Stellmoor International, which is looking to buy out Oliver Queen’s family company Queen Consolidated. She’ll make her debut in the Season 2 premiere.
Rochev first appeared in the Green Arrow comic books just three years ago where her character rose to the top of Queen Industries and sought to bring it back to its former glory, seeing herself as the rightful heir. It would appear this intense rivalry between the two of them will carry over into the television series.
Star Stephen Amell has spoken about the upcoming season and teased that it will feature “a growing world” for Oliver Queen. New series regular Colton Haynes has also teased that “a few of the most important DC characters” will be joining the series.
The first season of the series will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on September 7th with Season 2 premiering on October 9th.
