With The CW releasing their 2014-2015 schedule, it was announced that “Arrow” will remain in its current Wednesday time slot, as well as them releasing a synopsis of the third season. Here is the official synopsis that was released:
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. He returned home to Starling City, bent on righting the wrongs of his family and fighting injustice. To do this, he creates the persona of the Arrow and allies himself with former military man John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), street brawler Roy Harper (Colton Haynes) and international assassin Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), while keeping his secret from those closest to him including his sister Thea (Willa Holland), who has allied herself with his most deadly enemy. Rivalries and allegiances will shift as Oliver faces his most difficult challenge yet. Based on characters appearing in comic books and graphic novels published by DC Entertainment, ARROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Green Lantern,” “Brothers & Sisters”), Marc Guggenheim (“Eli Stone,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Warehouse 13,” “The Vampire Diaries”) and Sarah Schechter
So while a whole lot wasn’t revealed in this synopsis, it does seem to appear that what Thea did in the season 2 finale, will indeed play a big role in season 3. And with Sara being included in this synopsis as one of Oliver’s allies along with Diggle, Felicity and Roy, hopefully that means she will be playing another large part in the third season as well, even with what she decided to do at the end of season 2. We’ll have a few months to speculate, but we can be sure to expect more announcements for season 3 to be revealed throughout the summer.
