The third season of Arrow premiered on October 8, 2014, on The CW and concluded on May 13, 2015. The season consisted of 23 total episodes during its run.
After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. He returned home to Starling City, bent on righting the wrongs of his family and fighting injustice. To do this, he creates the persona of the Arrow and allies himself with former military man John Diggle, computer-science expert Felicity Smoak, street brawler Roy Harper and international assassin Sara Lance, while keeping his secret from those closest to him including his sister Thea, who has allied herself with his most deadly enemy. Rivalries and allegiances will shift as Oliver faces his most difficult challenge yet.
