Stephen Amell’s ‘Arrow’ Final Season Premiere Will Be “Nostalgic Of The Pilot”

Beth Schwartz, showrunner of The CW’s hit DC Comics series Arrow starring Stephen Amell reveals that the final season premiere will harken back to the pilot.

While speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Schwartz revealed that the entire final season of Stephen Amell’s Arrow will not only have elements that reflect back to the show’s first season, but the first episode will be specifically nostalgic to the very first episode:

“This season is definitely a reflection of all the previous seasons. The premiere is very nostalgic of the pilot and of season one, visiting those sets, like Queen mansion, that we all love and we all have [people] we’ve tried to bring back a few times — those characters that were really there from the very beginning and helped to create this series and what made it so successful.”

This isn’t the first time we’ve heard that Arrow season 8 would be exploring elements of the first season. Stephen Amell teased that the classic Green Arrow suit from the first season could make an appearance.

Given that this is the last season of Arrow, it makes sense that Schwartz and the rest of the writers plan on harkening back to the first season and pilot to bring the story full circle. By being nostalgic of the pilot, this allows the writers and Stephen Amell to pay tribute to the first season while also rewarding longtime fans for their commitment to the series after all these years.

Here is the official synopsis for the final season of Arrow:

“After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the North China Sea. He returned home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs done by his family and fighting injustice. As the Green Arrow, Oliver successfully saved his city with the help of his team including former soldier John Diggle (David Ramsey), computer-science expert Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards), former protégé Roy Harper (Colton Haynes), street-savvy Rene Ramirez (Rick Gonzalez), metahuman Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy), brilliant inventor Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum) and Earth-2 Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy). In the wake of discovering what his future holds, Oliver will find himself pit against his most challenging battle yet, one that will leave the multiverse hanging in the balance. In Arrow’s final season, Oliver Queen is forced to confront the reality of what it means to be a hero.”
