While Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow still have one episode before they wrap their respective seasons, The CW is already teasing next season with these new synopses.
The CW has released synopses for its returning shows. While the synopses for most of its returning shows, including The Flash and Jane the Virgin, are pretty generic and non-spoilery for next season, synopses for Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow offer a little tease about what we can expect for season 5 of Arrow and season 2 of Legends.
Let’s take a look:
ARROW (Wednesdays, 8pm)
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), former police captain Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), and brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum). But sinister players with a connection to Oliver’s past will push the team to its breaking point, threatening everything Oliver’s worked for and his legacy as the Green Arrow.
Who are these sinister players from Oliver’s past? The upcoming season finale of Arrow on Wednesday should provide some more clues.
DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW (Thursdays, 8pm)
When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) assembled a disparate group of both heroes and villains – including Firestorm (Victor Garber and Franz Drameh), Atom (Brandon Routh), White Canary (Caity Lotz), Hawkgirl (Ciarra Reneé), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), and Heatwave (Dominic Purcell) – to confront an unstoppable threat. After saving the world, the Legends of Tomorrow now are charged with protecting time – the past, present, and future – itself. This responsibility will take them across history, bringing them up against a threat unlike humanity has ever known.
