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.
