Today has seen the release of a brand new poster for the highly anticipated third season of Arrow, the popular DC Comics TV series which stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, a.k.a. Green Arrow.

It features the titular hero alongside Diggle, Felicity, Laurel (the future Black Canary) and Roy Harper (now suited up as his sidekick Arsenal). Also below are a new batch of stills from the season three premiere.

Arrow returns to The CW early next month and should follow shortly after on Sky One here in the UK.

Here’s a description for this year’s opener: “In the aftermath of this victory, Season Three opens with Arrow now a hero to the citizens of Starling. Crime is down, people feel safer, and Captain Lance even calls off the Anti-Vigilante Task Force. Basking in his success, Oliver believes he can finally have a private life and asks Felicity out on a date. But the second Oliver takes his eye off the ball, a deadly villain reappears in Starling, forcing Oliver to realize that he can never be Oliver Queen – not as long as the city needs The Arrow.”
