The CW president Mark Pedowitz has commented on the possibility of a potential spin-off of the hit series Arrow which stars Stephen Amell as the Emerald Archer.
Earlier this year, Arrow showrunner Beth Schwartz lent hope to a possible Arrow spinoff featuring the team of next-generation superheroes picking up the mantle of Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen. But it doesn’t seem like that’s happening any time soon.
When asked during the Television Critics Association summer press tour about the Star City 2046 storyline in Arrow, and the potential of a spin-off featuring the next-generation team of DC superheroes, Pedowitz revealed that it’s possible we could see a spin-off of the Stephen Amell series but the network is instead favoring launching a brand new DC series for the Arrowverse instead. The new series is being developed for the 2020-2021 season.
CW prez on potential #Arrow 2040 spinoff: There's possibility, but we haven't fully had the discussion about that one way or another. Right now there's another property that we're looking at for next season. #TCA19

Plot details for the final season of Arrow remain under wraps, but Stephen Amell returns to conclude the series with a final 10-episode run sans co-star Emily Bett Rickards who opted not to return. However, the final season will feature Colin Donnell and Josh Segara reprising their roles as Tommy Merlyn and Adrian Chase respectively. Here is the official synopsis for the final season of Stephen Amell’s 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.
Arrow stars Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Echo Kellum, Rick Gonzalez, Juliana Harkavy, Colton Haynes, Kirk Acevedo, Sea Shimooka, and Katie Cassidy Rodgers.
Arrow season 8 premieres on October 15, 2019, on The CW. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on Stephen Amell, and the future of Arrow as we learn it.
