Arrow Season Four Renames Starling City

Arrow's upcoming fourth season has hit yet another target from the Green Arrow Comics.

Arrow will officially rename Starling City to Star City, aligning Oliver Queen's hometown with that of his comic book counterpart's. The reveal came in a recent set post from Arrow star Paul Blackthorne (Quentin Lance), who displayed a police badge that clearly reads "Star City."

Arrow had always called its locale "Starling City" as a nod to the source material, but it seems that the series is no longer dancing around its four-color history. This follows Arrow's recent name change to "Green Arrow," a more comics-accurate costume, and statements made by Arrow's producers that Season 4 would embrace its comic book roots.

Arrow Season 4 premieres October 7 at 8:00 p.m. on The CW.
