The fifth season premiere of Arrow is just a few hours away and wrestler Cody Rhodes is one of the many fans who cannot contain their excitement.
Rhodes recently tweeted about his excitement for the new season and did his part to promote the show by sporting his new Arrow jacket with “Team Rhodes” written on the back.
“Tomorrow @CW_Arrow enters its FIFTH season(and I join the party) 8et on @TheCW & Thursday don’t miss @IMPACTWRESTLING 8et on @PopTV”

Rhodes himself will be making a guest appearance in the third episode of season five. In the episode titled “A Matter of Trust”, currently scheduled to air on October 19, Rhodes will play Garret Runnels, a drug dealer who will be one of the first threats Oliver’s new team will face.
Newly appointed Mayor Oliver Queen finds himself challenged as he fights on two fronts for the future of Star City. With Diggle back in the military and Thea adamant about hanging up her hood as Speedy, Team Green Arrow is down to just Oliver and Felicity – but they’re no longer the only vigilantes in town. Green Arrow’s public defeat of Damien Darhk at the end of Season Four has inspired a new crop of masked heroes to step up and defend the city, though their painful inexperience makes them obstacles, rather than allies, in the field. The arrival of a deadly new adversary will force Oliver to confront questions about his own legacy, both as mayor and as the Green Arrow.
Produced by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter, Arrow stars Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, John Barrowman and Paul Blackthorne.
The fifth season of Arrow premieres October 5 on The CW at 8:00 PM ET.
