Set to return on Wednesday, October 9th is ‘Arrow’ one of the hottest debuts of the last fall season and a program that seems to be carrying a lot of hopes, as it seems DC Comics/Warner Brothers are banking on it to serve as the basis for potentially an entire world of comic-based shows.

In anticipation of the Season 2 premiere, the CW has released this clip from the first episode. In the video below, we see Diggle and Felicity parachuting onto the island that Oliver was stranded on at the beginning of the series. Obviously, Oliver retreated back to the island after the aftermath of last season.  And some time has passed. Check it out for yourself after the synopsis of the episode below:

Diggle (David Ramsey) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) travel to Lian Yu in search of Oliver (Stephen Amell) who left Starling City after The Undertaking.  Convinced to return home, Oliver finds that things are in worse shape than he thought – Isabel Rochev (guest star Summer Glau) is preparing a hostile takeover of Queen Consolidated, Thea (Willa Holland) refuses to visit Moira (Susanna Thompson) in jail, Roy (Colton Haynes) is trying to fill the void left by the Arrow’s absence, and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) is working with the District Attorney’s office to take down the vigilante.  Meanwhile, flashbacks to the island show Slade (Manu Bennett), Shado (guest star Celina Jade) and Oliver in a desperate situation.

There’s a lot to get excited about in this upcoming season. Manu Bennett has been bumped to series regular, so expect to see more of Slade Wilson this season, there will be an introduction of several familiar DC villains such as the Black Canary, and we’ll see more of the team work together.

So, tune in to the new season of ‘Arrow’ which kicks off next week on Wednesday (that’s Amellsday), October 9th at 8 pm ET on The CW.
