Will the Helix group be back in Arrow’s sixth season, which was just announced as premiering on October 12?
TV Line’s Matt Mitovich went to Executive Producer Wendy Mericle with that very question which you can find in his column this week at TV Line (full of spoilers for other shows too, so check it out!).
And the verdict? Helix is very much “a dangling thread” which is something that the Arrow producers don’t leave hanging around.
“It’d be a great, sort of built-in story for Felicity to revisit these people, who are not very happy with her, let’s be honest. We left that open-ended on purpose, for sure,” Mericle said.
The official “Big Bad” for Arrow Season 6 has not yet been revealed, so we’ll have to wait to find out if they have any connection to Helix at all, or what they may have to do with messing up the lives of Oliver and company.
