Get ready for non-stop action and heart-pumping thrills as the second season of Arrow hits your screens! Based on the DC Comics character Green Arrow, this series takes you on a journey of a billionaire playboy, Oliver Queen, who returns to Starling City (later renamed “Star City”) after being shipwrecked on a mysterious island for five years. Donning the persona of “The Arrow” – a secret vigilante armed with a bow and arrow, Oliver is determined to take down crime and corruption, but this time, without killing criminals.
As Oliver continues to fight for justice, he’s joined by a team of allies, including John Diggle, Felicity Smoak, and Roy Harper, who he takes under his wing as his protégé. But just when things seem to be going smoothly, a new threat emerges in the form of Slade Wilson, a man from Oliver’s past who holds a vendetta against him. The season also introduces Sara Lance, who survived her ordeal at sea six years prior and joins Oliver’s team.
The season also features flashbacks to Oliver’s second year on the mysterious island, Lian Yu, where he faces a new threat from Dr Anthony Ivo, while struggling to survive alongside allies Slade and Sara, and the archer Shado. The origins of his feud with Slade are also revealed.
With an average of 3.28 million viewers each week, the second season of Arrow received critical acclaim and went on to be nominated for fifteen nominations in various categories. This season also introduces characters from The Flash, which was being developed as a potential spin-off at the time. Don’t miss out on the chance to own a piece of the action as the season is available on DVD/Blu-ray and streaming services like Netflix. The series was renewed for a third season on February 12, 2014, and the third season did not disappoint!
