The series doesn’t premiere for another 2 months but that won’t stop the CW network from continuing to remind us that there’s a new superhero in town and his name is ‘Arrow’. A new teaser has emerged playing up the fact that the Oliver Queen (Steven Amell), who was thought dead from a boating accident but was actually stranded on a deserted island, is now alive; but he’s not the same man his family and friends knew. This teaser falls in line with the previous trailers asking what happened in the 5 years on that island that caused Oliver Queen to become the man they now see before them.

Check out the trailerwhich follows the synopsis of the series below:

After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine.
