A familiar face from "The Walking Dead" will be coming over to the fifth season of The CW superhero show "Arrow." According to IGN, "TWD" alum Chad L. Coleman has been cast in the recurring role of Tobias Church. 

Coleman's character is described as "an imposing gangster looking to unite the various criminal enterprises in Star City under his own singular command." The new villain will be seen in the Season 5 premiere episode.

The actor is best known for his role as Tyreese on AMC's "The Walking Dead" and for portraying Dennis "Cutty" Wise on "The Wire."

Meanwhile, Variety has learned that Madison McLaughlin will return to "Arrow" Season 5 as the troubled teen Evelyn Sharp. The site says McLaughlin will be reprising her role as Evelyn for multiple episodes beginning in the second episode of the season. The site further revealed that the character will take on a new DC Comics persona.

After impersonating the late Black Canary (Katie Cassidy), Evelyn will return with her own vigilante identity as the masked archer, Artemis.

It will be interesting to see the direction the team take McLaughlin's character, as she has had quite an interesting past. In the comic books, Artemis is in fact a villain as a member of the Injustice Society and the daughter of villains Tigress and Sportsmaster. However, in the DC animated series "Young Justice," Artemis becomes Green Arrow's apprentice and seeks life as a hero.

Aside from Tobias Church and Artemis, Season 5 of "Arrow" is also expected to introduce the DC vigilante Wild Dog, who will be played by Rick Gonzales ("Mr. Robot"). Plus the coming season will give viewers some details regarding Oliver's time in Russia and the story behind that Bratva tattoo. 

"Arrow" Season 5 will premiere Wednesday, Oct. 5 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
