ARROW Will End Its Run After 10-Episode Eighth & Final Season This Fall

After kickstarting the CW's DC TV universe at the start of the decade, star Stephen Amell has announced the series will end its run with an abbreviated ten-episode eighth season, set to air this fall.

Hot on the heels of Clark Gregg (Captain Marvel) strongly suggesting Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. would end after its seventh season, another popular comic book series is also bringing its run to a close as Stephen Amell, who plays the Emerald Archer, has announced Arrow will end its run on The CW after a shortened eighth season, set to air this fall.

In a joint statement, executive producers Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim and showrunner Beth Schwarz said, "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. 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 honors 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."

The ten-episode final season will air this fall and will presumably feature at least one crossover episode as all of your favorite small-screen DC heroes, including The Flash (Grant Gustin) and Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), unite for Crisis on Infinite Earths. 

In an emotional Facebook Live video following the announcement, Amell explained the decision to move on and bring this story to an end. He also seemingly teased that despite the series ending, this fall may not be the last time we see him suit up as the Green Arrow. "Something tells me even when I’m done, I won’t be gone. If you’ve watched the Arrowverse, you should understand that... I think it's been a good run. It’s no Supernatural, but it’s been a good 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 North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, he protects his city with the help of former soldier John Diggle, computer-science expert Felicity Smoak, former protégé Roy Harper, brilliant inventor Curtis Holt, street-savvy Rene Ramirez and meta-human Dinah Drake. Oliver will find himself vulnerable in a way unlike ever before when a mysterious new enemy begins to unravel his work as Green Arrow, forcing him to redeem his name or risk losing everything.
