Arrow confirms final season

"You can’t be a vigilante forever," says star Stephen Amell, who will wrap with an 8th season.

US superhero Arrow will hang up his quiver in an eighth and final season.

A final season of 10 episodes will conclude early in 2020. The show is the longest-running of the DC Comics series on The CW.

“This was a difficult decision to come to, but like every hard decision we’ve made for the past seven years, it was with the best interests of Arrow in mind,” executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Beth Schwartz said in a statement.

“We’re heartened by the fact that Arrow has birthed an entire universe of shows that will continue on for many years to come. We’re excited about crafting a conclusion that honours the show, its characters and its legacy and are grateful to all the writers, producers, actors, and — more importantly — the incredible crew that has sustained us and the show for over seven years.”

Series star Stephen Amell posted on Twitter: “Playing Oliver Queen has been the greatest professional experience of my life… but you can’t be a vigilante forever…There’s so much to say… for now I just want to say thank you.”

Arrow airs in Australia on FOX8.

  1. Certainly the end of an era and despite the way you feel about superhero TV shows, you can’t deny Arrow trailblazed a new and improved era of this genre that was taken far more seriously than in the past. And it’s influence in helping spawn and shape an entirely new generation of the genre cannot be denied.
    I know I’m going to miss it.

  2. I’d say it’s the correct time to put it to bed.

    I can see Amell dipping his toes further into professional wrestling with his good friend – & co-star – Cody Runnels playing a large role in starting up a new wrestling company that is backed by a billionaire.
