When Arrow kicked off Season 3 last month with "The Calm", many fans were shocked that fan favorite character Sara Lance, a.k.a. Black Canary (Caity Lotz) was killed off. Over the last few episodes, Sara's sister Laurel (Katie Cassidy) has been training with Ted Grant, a.k.a. Wildcat (J.R. Ramirez) to take her sister's place, and today, The CW revealed the first look at Katie Cassidy in the Black Canary costume.

Sadly, fans will still have to wait a few more weeks to see her complete transformation, with the new Black Canary scheduled to make her debut in Season 3's 10th episode, "Left Behind", which doesn't have an official air date yet, but will likely air in mid-December or in 2015 after the holiday break.

Take a look at the first images below, and tune in tonight as Laurel continues her training in "Guilty", airing at 8 PM ET on The CW.
