Fall TV Preview
Arrow Jeri Ryan

Arrow Taps Star Trek: Voyager Alumna Jeri Ryan as Potential New Mayor

Arrow is taking aim at Jeri Ryan, tapping the Star Trek: Voyager vet to guest star in Season 4.

Per AccessHollywood.com, the actress will appear in Episode 2, titled “The Candidate,” as Jessica Danforth, a friend of the Queen family.

As teased in Ask Ausiello, the character is vying to be the new mayor and is a longtime pal of Moira’s; as such, she  was once close with Oliver and Thea. Her political ambitions will make her a target for a menacing antagonist.

Ryan’s many, many TV credits include Body of Proof, Helix, Major Crimes, Warehouse 13, Leverage, The O.C. and Boston Public.

Arrow returns Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 8/7c on The CW.

  1. she’ll probably be killed like the last 309285627480697268397268934769844 mayors

  2. CBR suggests, and I agree, that the show is possibly adapting the plot from the comics in which Oliver runs for, and becomes, mayor of Star(ling) City.

    I was hoping we might see Starling City get a mayor like Rob Ford

  4. Malcolm Mao says:

    My goodness, this woman is gorgeous

  5. Lizo says:

    Now that’s two Borg women to serve as Mayor. I’m TOTALLY down for this. I hope she gets more screen time/action than the last few mayors. You don’t cast Jeri Ryan and not give her some great stuff to do. I’m already needing some Jeri & Katie scenes

  6. JC1 says:

    Oh nice! I really like Jeri Ryan. I hope she’s around for more than just one episode.

  7. Seven of Nine is back woo hoo

  8. AW says:

    Looking forward to seeing actress Jeri Ryan in Arrow. Her work is incredible in Star Trek Voyager and Shark and she’ll do great here too!

  9. Georgia Madman says:

    Good choice!

  10. Jake says:

    I second that. Love her, she was awesome on Body Of Proof as well. Glad to see her back on TV.

  11. Barring anything she brings to the plot (which will be interesting, based on MG’s tumblr), I’m just excited to see Jeri Ryan again. I hope the Arrow fandom doesn’t care her like the Stark trek fandom did…

    Will she wear a 7 of 9 outfit, skin-tight erotic, while maintaining a serious political demeanor?
