One of the big rumors in the lead-up to Arrow’s Season 6 finale “Life Sentence” was that there might have been a reveal that an “Olicity baby” is coming; i.e., that Oliver and Felicity would be expecting a child together. Never mind that Oliver and Felicity do have a child they are parenting together already, and never mind that it’s been rare for any TV show to get better or more relatable with the addition of a baby… there were some fans who really wanted this to happen.
Obviously, it didn’t, and thanks to an interview with Stephen Amell at the CW Upfronts red carpet, we know it’s not happening in Season 7 either.
“In Season 7? No. Oliver has his hands full,” Stephen said in an E! News video that you can see below.
With that said… Amell had strong praise for his Arrow costar Emily Bett Rickards, particularly in a scene that they shared in Thursday’s season finale.
“The scene that I shot with Emily in the finale was my favorite scene in the entire season, by a wide margin. It was so cool, and she was so good. She’s a little bit perturbed with Oliver and the actions he takes in the finale, which we’ll have to sift through in the early part of Season 7,” he said.
Arrow returns for Season 7 this Fall in its new time slot of Mondays at 9PM on The CW. You can see video of the E! News interview below.
