The Final Season Of The CW’s ‘Arrow’ Will Have A Shorter Length

Arrow The CW Stephen Amell

The CW’s Arrow is set to wrap up its eighth and final season with an abbreviated number of episodes.

The news that the upcoming eighth season of Arrow would be the last came from star Stephen Amell himself via Twitter earlier today. In his tweet, Amell also confirmed that season eight would consist entirely of just ten episodes.

Per The Hollywood Reporter, CW president Mark Pedowitz explains that Arrow was canceled in order to accommodate The CW’s next generation of superhero television:

“Things will age and we want to get the next generation of shows to keep The CW DC universe going for as long as possible.”

Of course, the growing roster of superhero series on The CW owes their existence to Arrow. The show eventually became so popular that the network was able to spin off a number of different franchises similarly derived from the DC Comics pantheon, including The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Black Lightning and the upcoming series Batwoman. In fact, many fans refer to the shared universe that these shows take place in as “The Arrowverse,” recognizing where everything started, with a simple bow and arrow.

Here is a plot synopsis for the latest episode of Arrow:

After months of covertly pursuing Dante, Diggle (David Ramsey) and Lyla (guest star Audrey Marie Anderson) finally have a solid lead on the elusive terrorist, so they deploy the ARGUS Ghost Initiative to apprehend him. Meanwhile, Oliver (Stephen Amell) tries to bond with Emiko (Sea Shimooka). Marcus Stokes directed the episode written by Rebecca Bellotto & Jeane Wong.

Arrow airs on Monday nights at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
