Season 5 of Arrow returns in less than a month and now we finally have an extended preview of all the action that is yet to come! Prepare yourself for arrows flying, a new crew of superheroes, and so much more.
Before diving into the new trailer, let’s take a quick walk down memory lane and talk about season 4. The last time we saw Oliver Queen aka Green Arrow, played by Stephen Amell, his whole team had fallen apart.
That storyline will continue to play out in the coming season — at least according to the latest teaser.
“A shark that does not swim, drowns,” the beginning of the new trailer (in voiceover form) reveals. “If you don’t move forward, you die.” These are words to live by and possibly strike fear into Arrow fans’ hearts. Luckily, Green Arrow isn’t going to be fighting by himself, he’ll be recruiting a whole new group of heroes, and they need a LOT of work.
By giving fans a sneak peek at the new recruits — including Olympian, Curtis Holt, Evelyn Sharp and Renee Ramirez — through action scenes, the preview makes it clear that fighting will be at the forefront of season 5.
We also know that Oliver’s past and his time in Bratva will be explored a lot this season. In fact, you can see that Oliver will get a serious beating this season, but it won’t break him, because, he can take care of himself, duh.
Arrow returns to The CW on October 5.
