CW's series Arrow paved the way for several other series based on characters from DC Comics. However, Oliver Queen is now hanging up his bow and quiver after this season 8, which is going to have only 10 episodes.

Debuted in 2012, Arrow was the top dog on CW until it was surpassed The Flash as the most-watched original series. The show was a new take on Green Arrow, and it went on to join forces with other CW/DC series to establish an expansive universe. It undoubtedly gathered a lot of success, but unfortunately, nothing can last forever.

Arrow is coming to an end

Executive producers Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim, as well as showrunner Beth Schwartz, said in an interview that it was a difficult decision, but one that was with the best interests of Arrow in mind. They are happy that it has opened an entire universe that will stay around for many more years, yet they’re also excited about making a fitting conclusion that honors the legacy of the show and its characters, as well as all the cast and crew that has been around through its ups and downs for seven years.

Actor Stephen Amell has also taken to Twitter to express his gratitude to fans. “For now I just want to say thank you”, he said in the Tweet, in addition to saying that playing as the show’s main character Oliver Queen had been “the greatest professional experience” of his life.

The other DC shows of CWs: The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Black Lightning are coming back with their own new seasons. Meanwhile, besides Arrow, other CW series including iZombie, Jane The Virgin and some others are also concluding as well. The last season of Arrow is scheduled to come on air in late 2019.
