Just over one month until Arrow returns with the Season 3 premiere "The Calm", The CW has released five new photos, giving us another look at Arsenal (Colton Haynes). Fans got their first look at Arsenal back in July, but this image shows the archer interacting with Arrow (Stephen Amell).
We also get new looks at Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy), Quentin Lance (Paul Blackthorne), Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) and Sara Lance, a.k.a. Black Canary (Caity Lotz). Check out the images below, then read on for more information regarding Season 3.
Unfortunately, these images don't include any of new cast members making their way to Starling City this season, such as Brandon Routh (Atom), Karl Yune (Maseo Yamashiro) and Peter Stormare (Vertigo), J.R. Ramirez (Wildcat), David Cubitt (Manhunter), Matt Ward (Komodo), Rila Fukushima (Katana), Nolan Gerard Funk (Cooper Seldon) and Amy Gumenick (Cupid). Hopefully fans will get to see new images of these characters before the Season 3 premiere airs Wednesday, October 8 at 8 PM ET on The CW.
In the aftermath of this victory, Season 3 opens with Arrow now a hero to the citizens of Starling. Crime is down, people feel safer, and Captain Lance even calls off the Anti-Vigilante Task Force. Basking in his success, Oliver believes he can finally have a private life and asks Felicity out on a date. But the second Oliver takes his eye off the ball, a deadly villain reappears in Starling, forcing Oliver to realize that he can never be Oliver Queen - not as long as the city needs The Arrow.
