Marc Guggenheim announced via Twitter that Arrow will be welcoming Wendy Mericle as new co-showrunner for season four. Mericle will join Guggenheim, Greg Berlanti, and Andrew Kreisberg in running the show.

Mericle has written multiple episodes of the fan-favorite TV series, including this week’s episode, The Fallen. She has previously worked on such shows as Desperate Houswives, Smallville, Everwood, the Ghost Whisperer, and an untitled show about female Navy Seasls for Fox, so I suspect better storylines for Felicity Smoak, Laurel Lance, and Thea Queen.
I for one welcome the addition, and hope for a much less whiny fourth season because of the change. Mericle has written some of my favorite episodes, and I look forward to seeing what she brings to the show.
Arrow airs every Wednesday at 8 pm on the CW.
