Stephen Amell returns to TV after Arrow in first look images from the wrestling drama Heels, where he stars alongside Alexander Ludwig.

Coming off stints on long running TV series, Amell as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow in the CW’s Arrow, which aired from 2012 – 2020 and paved the way for the CW’s Arrowverse, and Ludwig as Björn Ironside on the historical fantasy drama Vikings from 2014-2020.

 Amell and Ludwig play brothers Jack and Ace Spade, who are rivals in and out of the ring. The Starz drama doesn’t have a premiere date yet but is already generating buzz. Heels has faced some issues, though, as Amell revealed in October 2020 he contracted the coronavirus while filming the series. The star also sustained a back injury while performing a stunt.
