Arrow has been pretty disappointing for the last couple of seasons, and after all of the Olicity melodrama, it's easy to forget that it was once a pretty great superhero show. Now, a new season five trailer is out, and it makes us a little more optimistic that the show will get back to its gritty roots.



This looks a lot more like the vigilante show we all watched in season one. Rather than huge magical villains, Ollie is taking to the streets again. That ridiculously fake punch is still in there (Daredevil this is not), but it looks much more grounded than the past couple of seasons. 

And while trailers can be misleading, it looks like they'll be keeping the relationship drama to a minimum this year. Felicity will likely still be a huge part of the show, but the EPs have been teasing that her arc will be separate from her love life this year, so hopefully that means the show will portray her as the strong, funny character we all loved in the first season.

Arrow returns for season five on October 5 at 8pm on The CW.
