The CW has released the official synopsis for the upcoming series finale of Stephen Amell’s Arrow.
After almost a decade of dominating television, Stephen Amell’s Arrow is set to wrap its run later this month. Responsible for launching the Arrowverse and the modern television superhero landscape, the finale of Arrow is poised to be a bittersweet one for fans who have been there since day one.
The road to the Arrow finale is a bit complicated, however. For one, Stephen Amell’s character is expected to pass away in this week’s Crisis On Infinite Earths double finale and become something more… spiritually ethereal? Next week’s episode will then focus on Green Arrow and the Canaries, a backdoor pilot for a proposed spin-off. And after that, we’ll finally see the long-awaited finale of Stephen Amell’s Arrow with Fadeout. You can check out the synopsis for Stephen Amell’s Arrow series finale below.
STEPHEN AMELL SIGNS OFF AS THE GREEN ARROW; EMILY BETT RICKARDS RETURNS FOR THE SERIES FINALE OF “ARROW” – After eight seasons, and the launch of countless superheroes, the series wraps up the story of the Green Arrow (Stephen Amell). Emily Bett Rickards returns as Felicity. James Bamford directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Beth Schwartz (#810). Original airdate 1/28/2020.
Following the finale, fans can look forward to seeing a retrospective that bids farewell to Stephen Amell’s tenure as the Green Arrow and the legacy Arrow leaves behind. The retrospective is titled Arrow: Hitting The Bullseye.
A CELEBRATORY EPISODE – Get ready for the finale with cast interviews from Stephen Amell and the cast of “Arrow,” and executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Beth Schwartz. Original airdate 1/28/2020.
The Arrow finale will certainly be a special night for fans who have witnessed Stephen Amell in the role since day one or for those fans who enjoy the other Arroweverse shows. In many ways, this is the end of the original link to the Arrowverse, but hopefully Stephen Amell isn’t done working with the television universe that made him a household name.

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.

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, Kirk Acevedo, Sea Shimooka, and Katie Cassidy Rodgers.
Arrow season 8 ends on January 28, 2020 on The CW.
