Oh boy. If ever you wanted Arrow to return to its darker roots, Season 5 might finally be your year. A new extended trailer for the October premiere is chock full of twists and turns, including a murderous Oliver, Dolph Lundgren, Felicity’s rebound guy and more!

The CW released an extended new trailer for Arrow’s fifth season, in which it seems the twice-renounced killer is back to using significantly violent force on his enemies. We also caught a glimpse of Dolph Lundgren’s “Kovar,” Oliver’s flashback Bratva initiation, Cody Rhodes, lots of the new team, and what seemed like Felicity locking lips with someone … and his gross sideburns.

In addition to The Wire star Chad Coleman taking the role of new baddie Tobias Church, alongside flashback villain Dolph Lundgren, Season 5 features the return of Madison McLaughlin as a new Artemis, as well additions of Wil Traval’s Human Target, Rick Gonzalez’s Wild Dog, and Josh Segarra’s “Vigilante.” Carly Pope has also joined in a recurring role as a Coast City reporter, with a comic attachment to Green Lantern, while former WWE wrestler Stardust will also put in an appearance.

We’ll see more of Arrow Season 5 soon, but check out the first trailers and photos below, and standby for the October 5 premiere.
