The final month of a countdown to the return of a television show is rough enough. But this torturous, now less-than-three-week-wait until Arrow season 4 is excruciating. Especially considering all of the wonderful teases that fangirl dreams are made of being released (cough, Olicity, cough).
The CW has finally released a slew of promotional photos for the season 4 premiere of Arrow titled “Green Arrow,” which introduces us to the show’s new, greener direction. And we couldn’t be more excited.
In the first look photos, we get a glimpse of the new Star City (RIP Starling City) and the new look Team Arrow, which features a costumed Diggle, the new addition of Thea, the familiar faces of Felicity and Laurel, and a non-costumed Oliver — at least for a little bit. Don’t worry, things are much greener in Oliver’s future in this season premiere.
Also featured in the photos we get our Olicity fix with a couple of new shots of the happy couple as they’re thrust back to (now called) Star City, a terrifying look at this season’s big bad Damien Darhk, and a shot of that gorgeous new Green Arrow suit. Wake us up when September ends and Arrow returns on Oct. 7.
Arrow season 4 premieres Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 8/7c on The CW.
