Arrow was renewed for an eighth and final season by The CW on January 31, 2019. It premiered on October 15, 2019, and will conclude in February 2020.
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, Oliver successfully saved his city with the help of his team including former soldier John Diggle, computer-science expert Felicity Smoak, former protégé Roy Harper, street-savvy Rene Ramirez, meta-humanDinah Drake, brilliant inventor Curtis Holt and Earth-2 Laurel Lance. In last season's finale, in the wake of discovering what his future holds, Oliver must leave his friends and family behind him and will find himself pit up against his most challenging battle yet, one that will leave the multiverse hanging in the balance. In Arrow’s final season, Oliver Queen is forced to confront the reality of what it means to be a hero.
The first seven episodes will serve as a "lead-up" towards Crisis on Infinite Earths, the eighth episode will take place during the crossover, and the final two episodes will deal with the fallout from the crossover.
Oliver will travel around the world this season.
The first seven episodes leading up to Crisis on Infinite Earths are a "love letter" to the fans with each episode highlighting some of the most memorable moments from the previous seasons.
