The CW has put out the official synopsis for the fifth season of “Arrow” today, giving us an idea of what life will be like for Oliver and the Green Arrow when season five begins.
You can check out the official synopsis below:
Newly appointed Mayor Oliver Queen finds himself challenged as he fights on two fronts for the future of Star City. With Diggle back in the military and Thea adamant about hanging up her hood as Speedy, Team Green Arrow is down to just Oliver and Felicity – but they’re no longer the only vigilantes in town. Green Arrow’s public defeat of Damien Darhk at the end of Season Four has inspired a new crop of masked heroes to step up and defend the city, though their painful inexperience makes them obstacles, rather than allies, in the field. The arrival of a deadly new adversary will force Oliver to confront questions about his own legacy, both as mayor and as the Green Arrow.
Looks like Oliver’s struggles next season won’t just come from villains and politics, but also from those who are trying to help Star City as new vigilantes.
“Arrow” season five premieres on Wednesday, October 5th.
