After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (series star STEPHEN AMELL) went missing and was presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira (series star SUSANNA THOMPSON), beloved sister Thea (series star WILLA HOLLAND), and best friend Tommy Merlyn (series star COLIN DONNELL) welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. As Oliver slowly reconnects with those closest to him and tries to readjust to the privileged social world he used to know so well, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow -- a vigilante -- to right the wrongs of his family and fight the ills of society. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he's become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was.
After being marooned for five years on a remote island, billionaire Oliver Queen returns home with a mysterious agenda and a lethal set of new skills that he uses in a war on crime in this hard-hitting action series. Reinventing the DC Comics character for a modern-day audience, the Arrow is not a superhero ... but a hero -- every bit as dangerous as the criminals he's hunting. After suffering unimaginable ordeals on the island, the Oliver returns to Starling City a new man -- determined to right the wrongs of his father and sworn to bring justice to those who've corrupted his city. But Oliver finds his crusade complicated by his friends and family. Overjoyed by his miraculous return, the Queen family nevertheless still trades on secrets that conflict with the Arrow's agenda. Oliver's return also affects his best friend, Tommy Merlyn, who will ultimately travel down a dark path; and the love of his life, Laurel Lance, who must somehow forgive Oliver before she can ever love him again.
