The flagship series for the small-screen DC universe that airs on the CW network will be coming to an end. Arrow, the Stephen Amell led adaptation of Green Arrow will be winding down during it’s upcoming eighth season. The show is currently in the middle of airing it’s seventh season, and was the show that allowed may other DC properties to receive a chance to thrive on the network. The eighth season will reportedly be shortened to just 10 episodes to end the show.
You can read a joint statement from showrunner Beth Schwartz and executive producers Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim below.
“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.”
I was once a big fan of Arrow, I stopped watching around the fifth season. First the show fell the to back of my queue, and then pretty much fell off it. I may one day return to it, but I simply don’t have time for it right now. I really enjoyed the first four seasons of the show, but it seemed to lose what made it special as the seasons went on.
