New Arrow Season 5 Trailer Brings the Action & Olicity Angst

The final countdown is on until Arrow‘s season five premiere. And to celebrate, The CW has unveiled a kick-ass new trailer teasing the action to come.

As Arrow heads into its new season, there are some new aspects of the show that will be on display, as seen in the trailer. Following the departures of Diggle and Thea from Team Arrow, Oliver (with some convincing from Felicity) recruits a new team that consists of Curtis Holt, Evelyn Sharp, and Mad Dog. We get a glimpse of the team in action (as well as the return of Diggle who’s training with the new team), which shows Oliver in a new mentor role.

Also, we got a glimpse at Oliver’s initiation with the Bratva, which already is proving to be one of my favorite new elements of the season. Perhaps this is the season where the flashbacks begin to truly resonate?

Then there’s the matter of the season’s Big Bad, who brings the ruthless Tobias Church to his knees. Prometheus wants the Green Arrow. And he’s determined.

And then, of course, we get a glimpse of Felicity making out with her new boyfriend (who appears to be an Oliver Queen lookalike and therefore probably is Human Target). While the Olicity fandom is clearly shaken, this isn’t anything to freak out over. Bring on the Olicity angst! And then bring on the Olicity reunion!

What the new trailer below and prepare for Arrow‘s fifth season one week from today!

Arrow season five premieres Wednesday at 8/7c on The CW.
