The trailer for the upcoming fourth season of Arrow was finally released on Friday — and it was definitely worth the wait.

At the onset of the super series’ return, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) has been MIA from Star City — yes, it’s now Star instead of Starling — and Team Arrow has been holding down the fort after their leader rode off into the sunset with Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards). But eventually Ollie returns as the Green Arrow to face season 4’s big bad, Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough).

In the first trailer for the season, we also get a sneak peek at new costumes, the new lair, new villains and the resurrection of Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), with the help of Constantine’s titular anti-hero (Matt Ryan). Among the other new faces coming to Arrow this season include Echo Kellum as Mr. Terrific, Jimmy Akingbola as Baron Reiter, Parker Young as Alex Davis, Rutina Wesley as Liza Warner, and Elysia Rotaru as Oliver’s love interest in the flashbacks.

Arrow is slated to return Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
