San Diego Comic Con has been inundating fans – in a very, very good way, of course – with new looks at both brand-new and returning television series. Arguably one of the most anticipated returning series, based on hard-core fan base, is DC Entertainment’s ‘Arrow,’ set to begin its fifth season on The CW starting this Fall.
The end of the fourth season left things in a pretty sizable state of disarray for Oliver (Stephen Amell) and company (heh heh, unintentional Disney reference!). The “First Look” video gives a quick recap of the end of last season, as well as lots to look forward to this season, including a new group of characters that will be working with Oliver – which is good, because the video also hits us with some new adversaries as well.
Take a peek:
‘Arrow’ returns to the CW with guns – err, quivers – blazing on October 5, 2016.
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 South China Sea. Oliver returned home to Starling City, bent on righting the wrongs of his family and fighting injustice. To do this, he created the persona of The Arrow and allied himself with former military man John Diggle, computer-science expert Felicity Smoak, lawyer-turned-vigilante Laurel Lance, billionaire inventor Ray Palmer, and his sister Thea Queen.
After years of denying himself his own life as Oliver Queen in order to be The Arrow, Oliver left Starling City with Felicity and made a home in suburbia. But their newly tranquil lives are upended when an evil new organization, H.I.V.E., takes over the newly-christened Star City. Oliver is forced to don the hood once more…but can he keep his aim as The Arrow without losing the life he has fought so hard to get back?
Tony Schaab misses ‘Futurama’ so much that he made himself a best friend out of a silver trash can and has daily internal debates about cutting off his head and sticking it in a jar. A lover of most things sci-fi and horror, Tony is an author by day and a DJ by night. Come hang out with Tony on Facebook and Twitter to hear him spew semi-funny nonsense and get your opportunity to finally put him in his place.
