With just a few weeks to go, the CW is releasing more information about the Arrow season five premiere!
The network released the episode description for the show’s premiere episode titled “Legacy.” From what’s been said in interviews by the show’s producers, it seems that it won’t only be the title for the opening episode of the season but also be something examined by the characters throughout the season.
“Legacy” will see a new team forming, a new threat on Star City, and the beginning of Bratva flashbacks. Check out the description below.
After Laurel’s (Katie Cassidy) death and the departures of both Diggle (David Ramsey) and Thea (Willa Holland) from Team Arrow, Oliver (Stephen Amell) takes to the streets solo to protect Star City’s citizens as the Green Arrow. With Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) guiding him from the bunker, Oliver is forced to deal with a city that has become overrun with both criminals and a slew of new (and painfully inexperienced) vigilantes. Watching Oliver try to balance his jobs as both the mayor and also the protector of Star City, Felicity suggests he form a new team, but Oliver resists. However, when a deadly new criminal, Tobias Church (guest star Chad L. Coleman), enters the picture, Oliver realizes the best thing for the city might be a new team of superheroes. Meanwhile, the flashbacks take us to Russia where Oliver faces off against the Bratva.
James Bamford directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti and teleplay by Marc Guggenheim & Wendy Mericle (#501). – SpoilerTV
The CW has also released a new one minute promo for the new season of Arrow that shows a bit more of the fighting and Oliver’s conversation with Curtis about what it takes to make it out there. Check it out below!
Arrow returns October 5 at 8 p.m on the CW.
