‘Arrow’ Season 4 Introduces Magic in a Surprising Way

Since its debut in 2012, The CW’s Arrow has gone from a surprisingly fun TV version of Batman Begins to the flagship of DC’s television cinematic universe. The show has seen Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) transform himself from frat boy douche to leader of a small crew of hooded vigilantes. They’ve packed plenty of action and drama into the previous three seasons, and so far it looks like season four will be no different.

Check out the latest trailer, released earlier today:

Season three ended with Oliver and Felicity riding off into the sunset, supposedly leaving the life of super villains and late night battles in abandoned warehouses behind. Granted, we all knew it would never last since they’ve promised us at least two more seasons of the show, so it’s no surprise to see Oliver drawn back into the world of Star(ling?) City.

But I have a feeling he’ll be less than thrilled to have Laurel (Katie Cassidy) and Thea (Willa Holland) show up right when it seems like he’s about to propose to Felicity. That’s some good old fashioned angst there. With the addition of Neil McDonough to the cast (playing this season’s big bad, Damien Darhk), it’s clear that quite a bit of s*** is about to hit the proverbial fan.

Of course, Arrow‘s universe has expanded greatly in the past year. Last season saw the successful debut of its first spin-off, The Flash, which was another huge success for the network. This season will see Barry Allen’s (Grant Gustin) adventures continue as well as the debut of spin-off number two entitled Legends of Tomorrow, featuring characters like Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), and Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) traveling through time battling the forces of Vandal Savage. It’s clear though that Oliver Queen is going to have his hands very, VERY full, and we fans wouldn’t have it any other way.

Arrow debuts on The CW Wednesday, October 7th.
