The CW has released a new trailer for the upcoming sixth season of the hit DC comics series, Arrow.
When the series returns in just two weeks, we’ll pick up in the aftermath of Prometheus’ destruction of Lian Yu. The first half of the season will also feature Deathstroke (Manu Bennett) heavily, including a two-part episode that will include flashbacks to help explain what’s happened to Slade between the death of Shado and making amends with Oliver at the end of the fifth season.
The new trailer teases Oliver’s ongoing struggle with his dual identity as both Oliver Queen and The Green Arrow, with his newly added responsibility as a father. You can check out the new trailer below.
The series stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen (Green Arrow), Katie Cassidy as Laurel Lance (Black Siren), David Ramsey as John Diggle (Spartan), Willa Holland as Thea Queen (Speedy), Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak (Overwatch), Echo Kellum as Curtis Holt (Mr. Terrific), Rick Gonzalez as Rene Ramirez (Wild Dog), Juliana Harkavy as Dinah Drake (Black Canary), and Paul Blackthorne as Quentin Lance. Here’s the official synopsis:
“After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), his vigilante-trained sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland), Deputy Mayor Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and his new recruits, street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez) and meta-human Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy). Oliver has finally solidified and strengthened his crime-fighting team only to have it threatened when unexpected enemies from his past return to Star City, forcing Oliver to rethink his relationship with each member of his “family”
