SDCC 2017: ‘Arrow’ sizzle reel

Warner Bros. and The CW has begun releasing their SDCC sizzle reels for all our favourite DCTV series. First up we’ve got a first look at Arrow season 6. Following the explosive events of the season 5 finale fans are still in the dark as to who survived the death of the island.

Since the season 5 finale aired we’ve gotten a look at Dinah Drake’s new Black Canary costume, confirmation that Katie Cassidy is returning as a series regular and the news that Oliver would play more of a father figure to William this season. Much to fans excitement star Stephen Amell also confirmed that Slade Wilson will be more of a regular presence moving forwards.

So it is no surprise to say that those are the only characters to appear in new footage in this trailer. Much of it focusses on the end of season 5 but there is still some great new action to check out.

After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the South China Sea. Oliver returned home to Starling City, bent on righting the wrongs of his family and fighting injustice. To do this, he created the persona of The Arrow and allied himself with former military man John Diggle, computer-science expert Felicity Smoak, lawyer-turned-vigilante Laurel Lance, billionaire inventor Ray Palmer, and his sister Thea Queen.

After years of denying himself his own life as Oliver Queen in order to be The Arrow, Oliver left Starling City with Felicity and made a home in suburbia. But their newly tranquil lives are upended when an evil new organization, H.I.V.E., takes over the newly-christened Star City. Oliver is forced to don the hood once more but can he keep his aim as The Arrow without losing the life he has fought so hard to get back?

Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, Paul Blackthorne as Quentin Lance. It was recently announced that original series star Katie Cassidy will return as a series regular in season 6 as the Earth-2 Laurel Lance/Black Siren.

Arrow airs on The CW Thursdays at 9/8c. In the UK the show airs on Sky One on Thursdays at 9pm.
