SDCC: ‘Arrow’ Drops an Explosive First Trailer for Season 6

Fans of the CW series Arrow were left in shock after the season 5 finale.  The season ending left the future of Team Arrow completely and totally up in the air after an emotional show down between Oliver Queen and Adrian Chase ended with Chase taking his own life.  Chase had rigged a series of explosives to a deadman’s switch and, upon taking his own life, he triggered that switch.  The entire island blew up and engulfed in flames with Team Arrow on it!

As the Arrow cast and creators hit the panel floor at San Diego Comic-Con, you can be the one question weighing on everyone’s mind is going to be, ‘who survived that explosion?”  The season 5 finale didn’t just jeopardize the fate of one character but, pretty much all the characters we know and love!

The cast and creators are on hand for an eye-opening conversation about the upcoming season. Those in attendance at the panel included Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, Willa Holland, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Echo Kellum, Rick Gonzalez and Juliana Harkavy.

The panel kicked off with some amazing teaser footage which you’ve simply got to see!  Check it out:

In addition to the trailer, it was also announced during the panel that Michael Emerson (LOST, Person of Interest) would be joining the series in a reoccurring role throughout season 6 and that we will see the return of David Nykl, who plays Anatoly Knyazev, the friend/nemesis of Oliver Queen (Amell).

Arrow’ s season premiere is Thursday, October 12 at 9/8c on The CW.  Arrow: The Complete Fifth Season is available now on digital and will be released on Blu-ray and DVD on September 19.
