Is the honeymoon over already for Olicity?! Arrow fans, deeps breaths. In and out. In and out. It's going to be OK.

After that amazing season three finale in which Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) literally drove off into the sunset, we all thought Arrow season four was going to be filled with happy times for our favorite couple (Hey, we can dream!). 

But E! News has confirmed that Arrow just cast a brand new love interest for Oliver next season. Wait...what?!

Put down your pitchforks, folks, because there's a major catch to this casting news!

Elysia Rotaru will recur in flashbacks this season as someone from Oliver's past, though further details on her character are being kept under wraps. So, calm down Olicity shippers, your couple of choice is still together for the time being!

"Oliver is gonna have a love interest in the past that will serve as a parallel or potentially a contrast to his love affair with Felicity in the present," executive producer Marc Guggenheim told EW.

This isn't the first CW series Rotaru has appeared on. She also guest starred in the pilot episode of iZombie and two episodes of Supernatural.

Arrow season four premieres Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. on the CW.
