‘Arrow’ season 2: See Stephen Amell and company in recap special before premiere

More scoop -While you may have to wait until Wednesday, October 9 to get your first complete look at “Arrow” season 2, we do have some good news for you now: There’s an opportunity to see some of the footage of the new season a little bit early.

One week before the premiere on October 2, which also happens to be a day before “The Vampire Diaries” officially kicks off the new season on The CW, the network will air a retrospective entitled “Arrow: Year One.” This title should be familiar, since it is also a very popular Green Arrow comic series that Stephen Amell studied carefully to draw inspiration for his portrayal of Oliver Queen on the show.

If you want to get a sense of what to expect during this hour, just take a look at the official synopsis just unveiled from the folks over at The CW:

“This one-hour special gives fans a chance to catch up on the incredible events that led billionaire Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) to secretly create the persona of Arrow. Five years after being lost at sea, Oliver returns to Starling City to carry out his father’s dying wish: take down the corrupt elite who have failed his city. The special follows Oliver as he delivers vigilante justice and discovers that the real threat to his city is far greater than he ever imagined. An exclusive first look at season two is included.”

If you loved the show’s first season, then you’re going to love what is coming up just as much if not more. There will be more iconic characters from the DC Comics than ever before and there will also be more villains and reasons for Oliver to be a hero.

Oh, and there is also going to be the first appearance of the Flash on the show. Click here if you have to read the news about who is going to be playing him.
