Marc Guggenheim who is the producer of CW’s popular TV series, Arrow has said the show will take a lighter tone.
He6told io9 that Arrow will star to bridge some of the gap between its dour tone and that of the relentlessly bright The Flash.
“It will take a lighter tone. That’s pretty much the only thing I say without spoiling it,” . “We’ve been working for about a month now in the writers’ room, talking about Season Four, and I think that one thing we all collectively understood was Season Three beginning with Sara’s death, because it’s the death of a major character on the show, it set a tone for the remainder of the season. And I’m not the least bit apologetic for that tone. I happen to like dark and I like the fact that Arrow is a pretty dark show particularly for a network show. That said, every year you want to mix things up and there was sort of a collective desire on all of our parts to try to inject a little bit more lightness into the show, a little bit more humor. It’s not going to radically change. The show’s still going to be the show but in terms of tone we’re coming off a very very hard season for all of our characters. We wanted to try to mix it up a little bit.”
Arrow has just recently concluded it’s third season and will returns in the fall for its fourth season, with Damien Darhk and H.I.V.E. serving as the primary antagonists.
