The CW has brought is some fantastic shows over the years and it is fair to say that one of their best shows around at the moment is Arrow. We have been getting a lot of news about the upcoming third season of the hit The CW television series Arrow, with plenty of talk about which new DC characters we will see appearing in the new season, as well as the stars that will be playing them.
Earlier this week it was revealed how we would see Tatsu Yamashiro, aka Katana, appearing in Arrow season three, with Devon Aoki being cast in the role. Now it looks like we are getting another new character, who is actually linked very closely to Tatsu Yamashiro, and that Maseo Yamashiro, who is the husband of Katana.
It has been reported that Karl Yune has been cast to play the role of Maseo Yamashiro, who is set to have a very important recurring role in the new season. As with Tatsu Yamashiro, we will see Maseo Yamashiro appearing in the Oliver Queen flashback scenes, where he becomes close to Oliver and ultimately acts as his mentor.
It will be interesting to see how Arrow handle these new characters, as Tatsu Yamashiro does not become Katana until her husband dies, with his soul possessing the sword that killed him. It is always good to see new characters being introduced and it has certainly upped our anticipation for the new season of Arrow.
Arrow season 3 will premiere on The CW on October 8. The show will air in the UK on Sky1.
