The drama will end with a 10-episode run.
March 6, 2019
Word is out today that Arrow will be coming to an end after its upcoming eighth season. The action drama is the network's longest-running superhero-based series, with its success helping pave the way for the likes of The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow.
Star Stephen Amell took to Twitter with the news, which does not come as a complete surprise given the show’s age. Once a flagship of The CW, Arrow's ratings have tapered off over the years. But at over 150 episodes, that is to be expected. And yet, it still draws decent numbers for the network compared to its other prime time entries. Yearly crossover episodes with fellow DC series also help boost its viewership.

It’s been a great show, but lately writing has just been off. I’m not a fan of the identity being known. I wasn’t a fan of the division of the the team last season either. I too hope they don’t send all the DC shows off though.

Oops, I meant TNT not TBS where the reruns of previous seasons are being shown. Thought I should correct that since it's a big difference.

Sad news, but not surprising in the least bit. Between the sound quality getting worse every season to the point that you can't hear hardly anything being said anymore because the background noise/music is WAY too loud (trend of CW shows making them all horrible but Arrow's the worst of them with this issue, this other timeline mixed in with no real differentiation that makes everything seriously confusing to the point I have no clue what's going on or who is who, and the mess of plots and recycling of bad guys, the show has been dying for the last couple years, but especially this current season. I'm pleased to see that TBS is starting to show reruns of the older episodes, so maybe I'll be able to actually rewatch the entire series and get a clue what's happened since the CW messed up the sound since TBS actually mixes it correctly. I really wish some other network would get the other shows as well (Supergirl, Flash, Legends, Supernatural) because then they'd be truly enjoyable again rather than a trial to hear what's going on. I'd bet if the sound quality had been good the show might be doing better since the ratings went down at the same rate the sound quality dropped.

*sigh*... yes i know Constantine was originally a stand alone on another network, and i know how hard it was to get Matt Ryan over for the first Arrow Crossover - im just saying it would be nice to see a CW version of the series (the animated version is worthless in my opinion, and as a general rule i like anime.) I just dont see any other (remaining) characters with enough charisma to pull their own spin-off (with the possible exceptions of Slade and Merlyn.) Harper, Felicity and Thea are all worn out at this point. John continues to bring conversion to the forums i follow.

My biggest complaints are the future crap and the 3 newbies, one of whom is gone now but the damage has been done.. I had a feeling the show would be axed, so I'm not surprised. Personally I blame the newbies and the writing.

Just for bonkers

Bonkers you really don't do your research Constantine has had his own show even a animation both didn't do very well ....

A SAD BIT OF NEWS for me. This show is a fine show, but it should end with a solid team, we want teams together not fighting each other. The arrow brought back superhero shows to success.

Im sad to see it go, but it wasnt unexpected. I give CW credit where due - the Arrowverse shows (while not exactly intellectual powerhouses) are very entertaining, and thats all i really expect out of a show these days. I think the ideas have dried up in Hollywood... Personally i hope this isnt like the Netflix massacre since (like Disney) DC is trying hard to launch its own streaming platform. Im one of the rare few (apparently) who really like all of the CW shows, especially Legends. I look forward to Batwoman, hope Constantine gets his own show, and see at least a few more years out of the Arrow pack.
