Tv Season Info

In Season 5, the lives of the "Arrow" team have spiraled out of control after the loss of Laurel (Katie Cassidy). Oliver (Stephen Amell) is encouraged by Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) to find a new team after Diggle (David Ramsey) rejoins the Army and Thea (Willa Holland) refuses to work with him. With Thea running the Mayor's Office alone as Oliver has his focus elsewhere, she appoints Quentin (Paul Blackthorne) deputy mayor. As the powerful Prometheus targets the Green Arrow, Oliver relents and brings Rene "Wild Dog" Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez), Evelyn Sharp (Madison McLaughlin), Rory "Ragman" Regan (Joe Dinicol) and Curtis (Echo Kellum) into the fold. The new team struggles with trust issues, but with a final addition of Tina Boland (Juliana Harkavy) they find their momentum and focus on bringing down Prometheus before he can destroy both the Green Arrow and Oliver. Episode 8 is part of the crossover event with sister shows "Supergirl," "Flash" and "Legends of Tomorrow."

Critic Reviews for Arrow: Season 5

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (2)

This is a show that has no problems taking character work, story progression and carefully crafted relationships we've spent hours with and throwing it all out the window for the sake of drama.

Good grief, was Season 5 not the time for Arrow to end with a cliffhanger.

October 16, 2017 | Full Review…

Yet a deeper look at the episodes implies that the writers threw every ball they could think of into the air and tried like hell to catch them all before the final episode.

October 3, 2017 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

With new allies and new villains, Arrow manages to return to its roots while moving forward in a way that will have you itching for more ahead of the show's sixth season premiering this October.

September 15, 2017 | Full Review…

Arrow is every bit the superhero show that The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl are, it's just got more moving pieces and the challenges of its own history to deal with these days.

June 6, 2017 | Full Review…

Second Chances wasn't just the theme for Team Arrow, but an effective do-over from the show runners in finally getting an established component of Green Arrow down correctly.
