Arrow producer on the big changes, Oliver's return in latest Season 4 trailer

The CW’s hit superhero series Arrow returns next week, and now we have an extended peek at the new status quo. Turns out the city is doing (mostly) all right without the Arrow. Or at least, it was.

Executive producer Wendy Mericle provides some context in the new trailer, which features her interview and some new footage from the season premiere. We get to see more of the team’s visit to Oliver and Felicity, where they ask them to return to Starling Star City and join the good fight. We also learn a bit more about the “ghosts” Damien Darhk is using to wreak havoc and destroy the city. There's also some fill-in material from the past few months, with Team Arrow (sans the Arrow) cleaning up the streets.

As for Mericle, she provides an update on what we’ve missed over the past several months. Thankfully, we’ll be able to jump past the learning curve for Thea’s version of Speedy and Laurel’s take on the Canary. They’ve been doing the job for months while Oliver and Felicity were away, and they’re well equipped to kick butt and take names in Season 4. We also get to see more of Diggle’s new costume in action, which actually looks a bit better than that initial (Magneto-esque) pic.

Check out the footage below and let us know what you think:
