I remember when Arrow first started over on The CW. I didn’t have much faith in it, to be honest. It was a show that was set in a more grounded DC universe. I didn’t think it would have the confidence to continue down that path for an entire series, and frankly, I didn’t think it would survive in terms of ratings. Obviously, I was only half-wrong on that front.

Arrow went on not only to be a big success for The CW, but it also spawned an entire universe of its own — informally called the Arrowverse. As such, I was ultimately right in how quickly it took a right-hand turn into campy comic-book territory, for good and for bad.

Though, no matter how you feel about the series, there is no doubt it’s had a big impact on this generation of comic book TV shows. And now, it’s coming to an end. Showrunner Beth Schwartz recently took to Twitter to commemorate the start of production of its final season with a new tweet.

The eighth season of Arrow will officially be its last, bringing a close to the granddaddy of this whole universe. While I’ve long since fallen off the Arrow train (though I LOVE the first season and a half), I’m very interested to see how they’ll close this out and if there will be the possibility of the Green Arrow popping up in the other CW shows.
