Arrow’s Stephen Amell Promises Fans Will See Classic Goatee — Eventually

During a panel at Salt Lake Comic Con, series star Stephen Amell was asked yet again when audiences will see Green Arrow’s classic goatee. While he couldn’t make a promise as to when it could show up, he swore that it will happen, before Arrow ultimately wraps up.

I promise you, before the series – not season, series – ends, we will have at least one shot with the iconic goatee,” Amell revealed.

The goatee has been a frequent topic of conversation amongst Arrow fans for quite some time, with various degrees of responses from Amell. While the star initially shot down the possibility back in 2015, he later vowed to sport the ensemble on the first day of work on Arrow‘s sixth season.

As that date crept closer and closer, Amell was asked about the goatee quite a bit, and even sported longer facial hair – before shaving it off – while preparing for Season 6.

But judging by Amell’s most recent comments, Oliver will eventually sport a goatee within the world of Arrow. In the meantime, fans can revisit the goatee-esque facial hair Amell had during his ‘Star City 2046’ appearance on Legends of Tomorrow.

Arrow returns on Thursday, October 12 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW
