“Arrow” Season 5 will take Oliver back into politics. Pictures from the production set of the premiere episode have leaked online, showing the filming of a scene for the TV series. New Westminster City will be standing in for some scenes of Star City this year.

[Spoiler alert]

After being forced to quit the race for Mayor in the previous season, Oliver (Stephen Amell) was later appointed as interim Mayor. Leaked pictures from the premiere episode posted on YVR Shoots shows Oliver addressing the press at the City Hall.

The filming took place at New Westminster City, Canada. The City Hall building was used to film the scene of Star City. One of the new characters joining the show this time around is Coast City reporter Susan Williams (Carly Pope), whose main focus will be to get a scoop on Oliver. She will travel all the way from the neighbouring city for this.
