  1. Spoiler Room: Scoop on Pretty Little Liars, Arrow, Chicago Fire, and more (Date: 23 June 2017)
    1. Do you know who survived the explosion on Arrow? —
      EP Marc Guggenheim cautions not to feel safe in the assumption that most of the core characters will definitely survive because they’re expected to return next season. “I know everyone is trying to determine who survives, who dies, what is the result of the cliffhanger based upon people’s contractual status, and I would say that’s not necessarily a good idea,” he says. “The example I like to point to is that was true in Walking Dead. They had a season finale similar where you had a group of characters, all of whom were series regulars, in a dire situation at the end of their season. Just because they were series regulars did not mean that everyone came out of that cliffhanger alive.”
  2. Arrow: Black Canary Memorial Revealed in Season 6 Concept Art (Date: 23 June 2017)
    1. The Black Canary memorial seen in the piece above mirrors a similar scene from the opening of Season 5. Around this time last year, Guggenheim unveiled artwork of a bronze statue of Laurel in costume. This appeared in the first half of Season 5, until Black Siren destroyed it with her sonic scream.

  1. Spoiler Room: Scoop on Pretty Little Liars, Arrow, Chicago Fire, and more (Date: 23 June 2017)
    1. What do you have on Legends of Tomorrow season 3? —
      The Legends of Tomorrow will find themselves facing off against Rip Hunter (and his new Time Bureau) once again next season, but it will be very different from what we saw last year. “In season 2, he was turned evil,” EP Marc Guggenheim says. “This is not Evil Rip. We’re not making Rip a bad guy or that kind of villain, rather this is Rip as… the Ronny Cox in Beverly Hills Cop to our Eddie Murphy. He’s the guy who’s trying to do things the proper way, follow the rules, get things done with a certain level of efficiency, and here come our Legends of Tomorrow, who go about things a bit more unorthodox.”
  2. Supergirl Adds Two New Showrunners; Ali Adler Departs (Date 16 June 2017)
    1. Supergirl just underwent a behind-the-scenes change-up. Deadline reports that co-creator Ali Adler has stepped down from her role as showrunner, per her overall deal at CBS TV studios. In her place, both Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner will be promoted to executive producer. Queller and Rovner have been part of Supergirl since the show’s first season. Queller joined mid-way through Season 1 as co-executive producer; Rovner, on the other hand, boarded as consulting producer and was later promoted to executive producer for Season 2. Both will act as showrunners for Season 3. They join fellow executive producers Andrew Kreisberg, Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter.
