The CW's Arrowverse is kicking back into maximum overdrive with the pending return of three DC shows: Arrow, Supergirl and Black Lightning (while The Flash already returned a few days ago).

Now we have two midseason teasers for Arrow and Supergirl. Up first is the ballad of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), whose Green Arrow is in the middle of his seventh season; the series is the longest currently-running DC show on The CW (though it still has a few years to go if it wants to catch Smallville's record).

In the extended trailer, titled "My Name is Emiko Queen," we find Mr. Queen on a talk show, assuring the good citizens of Star City that he's learned from past missteps. As he talks about his mission to "serve the city," we see clips of him vigilante-ing it up against the criminals of his hometown. He refuses to hide in the shadows anymore and what's better, he now has a partner/stand-in, his half-sister, Emiko (Sea Shimooka).

Watch the teaser:

Arrow returns this coming Monday, January 21 at 8pm EST.

Over in the universe of Kara Danvers, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) is being considered a threat because she decided to ditch a gig with the Department of Extra-Normal Operations or ("DEO"). The people she once considered allies are now intent on discovering her secret identity. Cue the O'Jay's "Back Stabbers," right? To make matters worse, even the people who know of Kara's other life are in danger.

Watch the teaser:

Supergirl returns this Sunday, January 20 at 8pm EST.

The fifth Arrowverse series, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, won't return for the second half of its fourth season until Monday, April 1.
