It’s official. CW has confirmed that Arrow will end after eight season. The eighth season of Arrow will air just 10 episodes before bidding fans a farewell. The cast members expressed their emotions on the show’s cancellation.
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.

Why CW canceled Arrow?
It’s the question in every fan’s mind and to answer it. Stephen Amell explained part of the reason for the show’s cancelation through a Facebook live video. He said:
“Towards the end of season 6, I approached Greg Berlanti, who I will be thanking in a second, and said that I thought both personally and professionally that, at the end of my commitment this coming season, it would be the best for me to move on.”
“I’ve always been a fan of television shows that not only don’t overstay their welcome but end in a manner that really packs a punch.”
“A large part of this decision is that I am now a father and a husband. And a lot of my life and interests don’t really reside in Vancouver anymore.”
