The CW has released a new Producer’s Preview for Arrow season four, and it features producer Wendy Mericle dropping some new details about what we should expect when the series returns, as well as brand new footage from the premiere, which is somewhat appropriately titled, “Green Arrow.”
The third season of Arrow was divisive to say the least, with many fans disappointed by the show’s take on Ra’s al Ghul and a few other story decisions which were made along the way. Throw in the fact that The Flash somewhat overshadowed Arrow, and you can see why they’re going all out to ensure this year’s batch of episodes are the best yet.
Whether or not they will be remains to be see, but it certainly sounds pretty good judging by the plot summary:
After defeating his most formidable foe to date and riding off into the sunset with longtime flame Felicity Smoak, Oliver Queen (a.k.a. The Arrow) left Starling City with the hopes of beginning a new life. But will Oliver ever truly be able to leave behind his past as the Arrow, and, if so, what becomes of the team he has worked so hard to assemble? Will Diggle, Thea, and Laurel be left to continue Oliver’s crusade without him? And with Malcolm Merlyn having ascended to the top of the League of Assassins as the new Ra’s al Ghul, is anyone really safe?
Those are the questions posed in the synopsis for Arrow‘s fourth season, and we’ll hopefully learn the answers to them all when the show returns on October 7th.
