  • It's confirmed that Arrow will end after 8 seasons. The 8th season will have 10 episodes.

    Arrow was a great show. after 7 long years the show is ending. goodbye Arrow. Thanks for the amazing adventure.

    what do you guys of Arrow ending after season 8?

    • Its the right time. Just as the story-lines have been worse each season, and its hinted GA will die in the crossover. There isn't much more Arrow can offer in terms of entertainment. Awful supporting characters.

    • Well, the fact that will only have 10 episodes, further implies that he is going to die. I was wrong.....

      Why not? It started with Arrow, so even if it has ended, it makes sense to call it that.

    • While I still like Arrow and think that as a show it still has something to offer, this is the best time to end, they’ve been preparing for it all season, the characters are at the end of their main arcs and the ten episode bonus gives some time to wrap it up and up the stakes by killing some of them in the final episodes. I think the real question is what the rest of the cast will do after it.

      So since I brought it up time for my speculation on it. I think that we can be pretty certain that Oliver is dead by the end of Crisis, of everyone else only Emiko, Siren and Diaz aren’t clearly alive after the Crisis, leaving them most likely to do all sorts of things. Diaz is also almost certainly dead, probably by the end of S7. I think that Emiko, Black Siren and/orCanary and Felicity have the biggest chances of a spin-off, possibly with Helena, to make Birds of Prey actually happen. The only other spinoff I could see is suicide squad/ARGUS with Diggle, Lyla, Diaz (a spin-off is his only chance to survive) and a recurring villian or two, but the latest episode makes that much less likely.

    • I do not think any sort of spin-off would be really needed

      Would it be needed, not really, but they would probably be good and a good way to deal with any cast members who still want to be on. I do think the mostly likely thing that will happen is Lyla moving to being more recurring on the Flash.

    • I wonder what the cast of the other DCCW shows think of Arrow ending after season 8?

        Loading editor
    • I think the surviving characters will be shipped off to other Arrowverse shows. Maybe there's a e38 Laurel who isn't a villain? Or send her off to the final season of LoT? (I'm thinking s5 will be their last season). Ratings wise.

      What about Flash? He's meant to disappear. But if Oliver sacrifices himself, Barry may live. I'm also thinking Supergirl may end with season 5. Their stories are getting more and more awful.

      Nora is making sure Barry doesn't dissappear, plus Oliver made a deal with the Monitor. So until 2024 Barry is still around as we know from the newspaper.  Legends of Tomorrow season 1 episode 6 "Star City 2046", we see Oliver as an old man who is in hiding presumed dead. Diggle's son Connor is the new green arrow. Oliver comes out of hidding and tells that everyone on the arrow team is dead even Felicity. He tells the Legends to prevent Star City from turning bad.

    • Star City 2046 has been erased, Smoak Industries doesn’t exist in the PalmerTech building, and the bunker was destroyed differently than it was said. And with Felicity being a criminal/MIA Smoak Industries is unlikely and Grant killed Team Arrow members Laurel, Quentin, Thea and Diggle, two of those are dead and one is no longer part of it. Also SC 2046 ends trying to stop it, it’s definently can’t be used as proof for anyone’s fate (and we are definitely having an Earth merge which changes history).

        Loading editor
    • Hard not to think the DCEU's floundering is a factor here. Maybe WB is getting annoyed that people are watching the CW shows instead of their big budget productions?

      And though Amell's clearly trying to put on a positive face for us and everyone else, I can tell how upset he is just by his voice. I've heard him when he's happy and it's definitely not a happy Stephen in that video.

      Can't lie, I would definitely watch this even if it ended up being a direct continuation of Arrow. We've only known Emiko for a few episodes now, but I already adore her and it would be a waste to relegate her to the occasional guest appearance on other shows. And Helena has been incredibly underutilized, IMO.

      WB has rights to Birds of Prey for now.

    • Warner Brothers has rights to everything because Warner Brothers owns DC, it has the rights to the Flash and Black Canary and Superman (proved by the fact that they are all in movies), but also Batman and Wonder Woman, but also the rights to Firestorm and Sara Lance and Ray Palmer, WB/DC has had several weird rules about people being confused that are dumb but they can easily ignore them if they think they'll make more money, if they think that a completely hypothetical Birds of Prey show is worth it/different enough they'll let it exist.

      And on the idea from awhile ago that Arrow was forced to end by a butthurt DCAU, thats ridiculous. It is time for it to end, Stephen is sad because he's spent seven years of his life on this and loves doing it. I'm usually sad ending community plays and I only devote six weeks to those. Also the Arrowverse is not watched by anything remotely close to the DCAU, the people who watch them like them more, take a look at ticket sales for DCAU (besides JL) and then look at the viewer numbers for the Arrowverse, while it is amazing on the CW, you have different needs on a TV network (especially one that's job is to make it to syndication) than a big-budget blockbuster.

      Don't know why it's ridiculous when one considers that the DCEU is already crumbling to pieces around WB's shoulders while the Arrowverse is still going strong in spite of all the absurd restrictions placed on it. WB wants to compete with Disney's MCU on the big screen, but so far, the DCEU is TNA to Disney's WWE and it doesn't appear to be changing.

      In any case, I just said it's hard not to think that might be the case. I didn't present it as a concrete fact.

    • Why would they end it then? currently they seem to doing the smart thing when one is doing a lot better than the other, give more resources to it. Arrow was ending soon anyway, they’ve been winding down for the past few years, especially this one, we’ve been expecting it to end soon for the past few years and if they really wanted to end this stiffness for being butthurt they wouldn’t choose the one that was ending around the time anyway, they’d do Supergirl or Legends or BL, all of which are (18-49 ratings-wise) doing worse. They’ve been throwing movies at the wall in the DCEU hoping they’ll stick, when you’re stuck doing that the wise business move isn’t to start shooting the things that you’ve made stick (why WW is getting a sequel and The Flash and Supergirl are allowed Barry and Clark), that’s why they have so much Harley Quinn Stuff, that has been sticking in all forms so you throw things like it at the wall.

    • Oliver won’t Cause he’ll be dead, but the rest probably will. If we get any spin-offs they’ll appear. I think that Lyla, Diggle and ARGUS will start appearing more in Flash and Supergirl (presuming earth-merge) as recurring members. The crossovers will likely start including the heroes/actors available so whoever isn’t busy at the time can show up when they feel like it. I’m still supporting he Birds of Prey spin-off which would only leave Roy and Rene left to bounce around when they feel like it.

      Completely off-topic for that but BL is definitely not airing til after Arrow ends or else they’ll have six DC shows and CW will be taken over by DCTV.

      You are the ridiculous one. Of all the DCEU films, only Justice League underperformed in any substantial way, and Aquaman and Shazam are showing how much of money maker DC movie properties can be. Major actors like Affleck not holding out for DCEU is a problem for the franchise, but not so much for WB, especially for the TV show crews, which are given freer reign with Batman and Superman while the movie representations of those characters are "on hiatus".

      DCEU started out pretty late, and rushing it to compete with Disney in terms of "superhero crossover factor" only worsened BvS and JL. Their current steady tactic of making character-centric movies without forgetting the overall "Worlds of DC" is gonna work towards DC movies dominating in the upcoming neo90s-themed decade of entertainment. Nothing's crumbling.

      How was I "called out"? I've given my reasoning behind why I hold said opinion. You responded by verbally attacking me and going on an over-emotional rant.

I don't buy that Zor-El is dead, since he's alive in the comics as Cyborg Superman. He'd make a decent replacement to Hank Henshaw since his actor doesn't wanna play him anymore.

    • Of course it’s ending in 2019, the Crisis will be episode 9 of everyone, Arrow will probably start at the time every one else does and no way is there going to be one episode in 2020, until this season the midseason has been the episode after the crossover and the crossover has always been in the year it started.

    • I think Oliver will die during Crisis on Infinite Earths, hence the 10 episodes in Season 7 of Arrow. So, I also think that Crisis on Infinite Earths will be on the 10th episode of each show (maybe even "Batwoman" too). So when Barry died in the comics, I think it will be Oliver who dies instead of Barry.

      Or it will be the 9th episode the crossover happens, and the tenth is the aftermath, dealing with Oliver being gone and a reunion from many of the other shows casts paying their respects.
