Arrow, and all the other CW Superhero Shows, were renewed for next season.  But now we learn that next season will be Arrow’s last, and there will only be 10 episodes.  YIKES! What about the ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ crossover event that was promised? But Stephen Amell was not fired, it is his decision to go.  And he posted a video on his facebook page to explain why. You can check it out here…

All good things…

This is kinda shocking news;  the ten episode announcement, not the final season announcement.  With continued low ratings, I had a feeling that season eight would be Arrow’s last.  And that’s not a bad thing.  Arrow has been going strong for seven years now.  That’s great for a series like this. And now that Oliver has been unmasked, they’ve painted themselves into a corner that’s hard to get out of.  And now they won’t have to.

Plus, with the rest of the Arrow-verse still chugging along, I assume that members of Team Arrow can do guest shots on those shows as needed.  Here’s what series producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Beth Schwartz had to say…

“This was a difficult decision to come to, but like every hard decision we’ve made for the past seven years, it was with the best interests of Arrow in mind.  We’re heartened by the fact that Arrow has birthed an entire universe of shows that will continue on for many years to come. We’re excited about crafting a conclusion that honors the show, its characters and its legacy and are grateful to all the writers, producers, actors, and — more importantly — the incredible crew that has sustained us and the show for over seven years.”

STEPHEN AMELL’s TWEET:   “Playing Oliver Queen has been the greatest professional experience of my life… but you can’t be a vigilante forever. Arrow will return for a final run of 10 episodes this Fall.  There’s so much to say… for now I just want to say thank you”

My note to producers: Please ditch the flash-forwards and flashbacks, and any other gimmicks, and give us ten strong episodes with the core Arrow Team we’ve grown to love…
