He was The CW's first superhero but Stephen Amell's time as leading man in the hit show Arrow is coming to a close. 

The show is entering its final season this fall and while speculation looms as to what the Arrowverse will look like without Oliver Queen at the helm, the good news is that fans of Stephen won't have to wait long to see him on their television screens after Arrow

News broke this week that the Arrow star will headline a wrestling drama titled Heels made by the cable network Starz. The eight-episode series sounds like it will be a great opportunity for Stephen to continue to showcase his combat acting skills while playing a wrestler. Reports are that Stephen's character will play the heel, a wrestling term for a villain, which will be a departure from the good-natured Oliver Queen CW fans have become accustomed to. 

Before he makes a turn to the dark side you can catch Stephen play Oliver Queen on the final season of Arrow returning on October 15th to Chicago's new home for The CW, CW26.
