We are nearing the month of October, and with it comes the fall season of television, and for DC fans, that means a whole lot of shows to look forward to on The CW. While each of the other shows like The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl all have plenty for fans to look forward to, there’s also some good stuff coming up in the new season of the show that started it all: Arrow.

For quite some time, Arrow had fallen off the deep end. However, with Season 5, a lot of fans seemed to agree that they had started the process of righting the ship. While things got a little goofy and convoluted from the time, the trailer for the upcoming sixth season of the DC show seems to continuing the trend Season 5 started.

Rather than focus on all the stuff happening with 17 other characters, it looks like they’re making pains to make it all about Oliver once again. From his brutal one-on-one fights with the baddies, to the struggles in his personal life, it’s the reason I became a fan of the show to begin with with its first couple seasons. As soon as the cast got a bit too big, I promptly checked out, hoping it would return to the more primal approach on which the series was founded.

While it remains to be seen whether or not Season 6 will hit the high bar set by the first two seasons, I certainly hope it will.

So far we know that the season of the series will kick off months following the events at the end of Season 5. That ending left a lot of questions, and rather than do the standard thing of just continuing on, they’ll slowly reveal the fates of everyone in the way Arrow does best: via flashback!

The synopsis for the first episode of Season 6 of Arrow is below:

“THE AFTERMATH — Oliver (Stephen Amell) deals with the fallout of the explosion on the island. James Bamford directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Wendy Mericle.”

Arrow Season 6 premieres Thursday, October 12 at 9/8c on The CW!
