Arrow star Stephen Amell spoke about whether or not he would reprise his role as Oliver Queen after the series ends and his answer may please many fans.
In March, Stephen Amell confirmed the rumor that Arrow would be coming to an end at The CW. Stephen Amell and the cast of Arrow have since posted several thank you messages for all of the fans that supported the show during its entire run which will end later this year with the show’s eighth season.
Stephen Amell recently spoke to DigitalSpy at MegaCon in Florida about the possibility of reprising his role as Oliver Queen in the future if DC or The CW asked him to. He was quick to say he would because Arrow is the most significant professional breakthrough of his career so far:
“I owe so much to them. So if five years from now they’re wrapping up Show X and they were like, ‘You know what would be the cherry on top of the sundae? Would you come back?’ What am I going to say? ‘No?’ It’s a shitty idea that I’d say no. You do what you can. I owe a lot to people, so if they need something from me, they can always have it.”
It’s safe to say that Stephen Amell’s Arrow started a very important trend in today’s superhero and comic book TV shows. DC’s current television universe on The CW started with Arrow and continued on with The Flash, DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow and several other shows which got much praise from fans throughout the years. It can even be argued that the new shows in DC’s streaming platform, DC Universe, are somewhat derived from Arrow‘s success. In any case, fans won’t forget Stephen Amell’s portrayal of Oliver Queen anytime soon so it’s nice that he’s still open to play the character in the future.

Here’s the synopsis for Arrow‘s season seven finale You Have Saved This City:
