The CW just dropped a new trailer for the fast approaching sixth season of Arrow and it is bonkers! It seems like they teased most of the story arcs we’re likely to see them explore in the new season.
We see a predictable focus on Oliver’s relationship with his son following the events of last season, but there’s also so much more. We see Slade Wilson apparently turning to Oliver for help, Vigilante will be reappearing and it looks like we’ll see him finally unmasked. They even tease the inevitable throwdown between our new Black Canary and Black Siren. Really, that’s just scratching the surface. Check it out!
In addition to the aforementioned Black Siren and Vigilante, Anatoly Knyazev is back plus it seems like Slade’s son might take a stab at Oliver, literally. Normally it would seem that Oliver’s allies are conspicuously absent from the trailer, but with the events of last season’s finale still looming over the premiere, the trailer does a nice job of not spoiling who made it off the island and who didn’t.
Interestingly it seems Oliver’s life is somehow even more complicated in the wake of last season’s tumultuous struggle against Adrian Chase/Prometheus. Based on the trailer Oliver will have to wear many hats – he’s the Green Arrow, the mayor of Star City and now it looks like he’ll also truly be taking an active role as a father to his son. He’s already having trouble juggling the first two to the point that this trailer has Oliver refuting rumors that he is the Green Arrow, adding fatherhood to the mix is sure to cause some sort of strain.
Arrow stars Stephen Amell, Emily Bett Rickards, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Echo Kellum, Paul Blackthorne, Katie Cassidy, Rick Gonzalez and Juliana Harkavy. That said, it’s not yet known whether all of them survived the massive explosions that rocked Lian Yu after Oliver killed Prometheus. Be sure to tune into the season six premiere which is slated to air this Thursday, October 12 on The CW at 9:00 pm.
