Stephen Amell shows off his wrestling gear in new image from upcoming drama Heels. Created by Ricky and Morty writer Michael Waldron, with Mike O’Malley as showrunner, Heels is scheduled to premiere on Starz in August. The drama takes place in a tight-knit Georgian community and places the men and women of professional wrestling in the small towns at its center. In particular, the series focuses on a promotion of family wrestling and the two brothers (played by Amell and Vikings star Alexander Ludwig) who are fighting for the legacy of their late father.
In addition to Ludwig and Amell, Heels has an impressive lineup of supporting actors. The cast includes Chris Bauer (Real blood), Alison Luff (New Amsterdam), Mary McCormack (West wing), Kelli Berglund (Now Apocalypse), Allen Maldonado (Blackish), and POINTDavid James Elliott as Amell and Ludwig’s father. But perhaps the biggest draw of the series, for many fans, is seeing Amell swap out his arrow costume for an outfit that suits the square circle. While the Heels The trailer didn’t reveal too much of what it will look like, now we have our first look at the actor’s wrestling gear.

Within the framework of EWpreview of the new TV series and new seasons coming out in summer 2021, a new photo by Heels has been unveiled. It shows Amell’s character, Jack Spade, confidently walking the ring with the championship in hand. It also offers a full view of Amell’s entrance outfit. You can check it out below.
The outfit is somewhat similar to what WWE wrestlers like AJ Styles and Ricochet have worn. It is also similar to what Amell himself has worn in the past, reminiscent of Amell’s entry clothes when he wrestled Christopher Daniels in the All in event in 2018. Nonetheless, there are key differences that make the look unique to Heels. And it’s obvious that while Spade might wrestle in front of a crowd of small towns, the character still comes across as if he’s signed into the big leagues.
This dynamic – the difference between Amell’s state of mind and reality – should be interesting for the series to explore. As O’Malley points out, the drama stems from the distance between a regular job and living the dream. Even though wrestling has a reputation of being a niche interest, benefiting a rather small audience, it nonetheless has the ability to tap into shared experiences through simple yet undeniably effective stories. When he airs his first episode, in a few months, Heels will have a chance to demonstrate this ability.
