As part of its cast panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, The CW has revealed that Arrow will welcome Lostand Person of Interest alum Michael Emerson to the series' sixth season in an as-yet-unannounced role.

Although the network did not disclose what character the Emmy-winning actor would play in the show, a portrait of Emerson in character was revealed. And if his small screen history is any indication, we can probably count on him to be some kind of brainiac.

Emerson, who's perhaps best known for his Emmy-winning turn as Benjamin Linus on Lost, has also been celebrated for his work on The Practice and as Harold Finch in Person of Interest. His addition to the Arrowverse wasn't the only bit of casting news to drop from the show at Comic-Con either.

Fans also learned that they can expect to see more of Anatoly Knyazev (David Nykl) in the coming season, as Oliver Queen's frenemy will be back.

Arrow returns Thursday, October 12th at 9/8c on The CW.

The CW announced three new cast additions to The Flash on Saturday at San Diego Comic-Con.

Danny Trejo has joined the show as Breacher, the father of Gypsy (Jessica Camacho), who is a feared intergalactic bounty hunter from Earth-19 and has a major problem with anyone who threatens his daughter.

Meanwhile, The 100star Neil Sandilands will arrive as Clifford Davoe, a.k.a. The Thinker, who will engage in a season-long battle with Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) that the network is dubbing "the fastest man alive versus the fastest mind alive."

Last, but certainly not least, Dominion star Kim Engelbrecht will portray The Mechanic, who serves as Davoe's right-hand mechanic and engineers snazzy devices to aid in his mission to fix humanity by way of his mega-mind.

With the addition of these three to the roster for the show's fourth season, it's clear Barry Allen's gonna need to crank up his running speed even more.

The Flash returns to The CW on October 10th at 8/7c.

Black Lightning Adds Dexter Alum as Jefferson Pierce's Mentor

The CW's Black Lightning has added two more faces to its cast list, the network revealed as part of its San Diego Comic-Con line-up on Saturday.

Dexter alum James Remar joins the cast as Peter Gambi, the best friend of Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams), who serves as his mentor and father figure and reminds him of some painful parts of his past that will shape their relationship. If that story setup sounds familiar at all, he had a similar countenance in the most recent season of Gotham ... and that didn't end very well for him there, so here's hoping he has better luck on Black Lightning.

Meanwhile, Bates Motel's Damon Gupton will also star in the new series, arriving as Inspector Henderson, the highest-ranking detective on the police force who forges an unlikely alliance with Pierce.

The first teaser for Black Lightning was unveiled on Friday and introduced the world to Pierce, a high school principal with two daughters who has to revive his long-dormant history of electrical control to protect his New Orleans, Louisiana neighborhood from the violence that encroaches.

Black Lightning premieres in 2018 on The CW.

(Full disclosure: TV Guide is owned by CBS, one of the CW's parent company.)
