With less than a week until Arrow‘s return, we’re getting more and more excited for the fifth chapter in Oliver Queen’s story.
A new featurette has been released that previews the new season — including new clips — and features commentary from Arrow executive producer Wendy Mericle and writer Brian Ford Sullivan.
We learn about what lies in store for Oliver, Felicity, Diggle, Thea, Team Arrow, and Olicity. Oh, and don’t forget Oliver’s origin with the Bratva. Simply put, season five is going to epic.
One of the more intriguing new reveals is Ragman’s backstory. Turns out Ragman is the sole survivor of the Havenrock tragedy, and he’s come to Star City to find out who is responsible. So we can assume that he’s going to tangle — or try to — with Felicity. Give us all the Felicity story!
It was also interesting to hear Mericle compare Prometheus — the big bad — as a “dark mirror to Oliver.” As we know from teases, Prometheus is the direct result of Oliver when he returned to Star(ling) City in the series’ pilot.
Mericle promised that season 5 will “make Green Arrow even more bad ass than he already is.” We are so ready.
Watch the sneak peek below where Mericle and Sullivan tease what we can expect from season five:
