Arrow Season Opener Teased In Images, Trailer

The CW has big plans for the upcoming seasonĀ Arrow. Not only have the show’s writers upped the ante when it comes to bringing in more characters from the DC Universe, but they’re also looking to expand into new shows thanks to a three episode arc featuring Barry Allen/The Flash that will work as a backdoor pilot. But, before all that, we’ve got to check out the first episode of the second season which premieres on October 9th at 8:00 PM EST.

Called “City Of Heroes,” the first episode features returning cast members like Stephen Amell, Karie Cassidy, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Willa Holland, Colton Haynes, Paul Blackthorne and new addition Summer Glau asĀ Isabel Rochev. Between the images above and the clips below, you can get a pretty good idea of where the characters are picking up after the first season finale.
