It's beginning to get a lot bleaker in the Arrowverse because it has officially been announced that Arrow will end next Fall with its eighth season.
The final season of Arrow will have 10 episodes and here is what the executive producers of the show, Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Beth Schwartz said about the initial Arrowverse show ending:
“This was a difficult decision to come to, but like every hard decision we’ve made for the past seven years, it was with the best interests of Arrow in mind. We’re heartened by the fact that Arrow has birthed an entire universe of shows that will continue on for many years to come. We’re excited about crafting a conclusion that honors the show, its characters and its legacy and are grateful to all the writers, producers, actors, and — more importantly — the incredible crew that has sustained us and the show for over seven years.”
Stephen Amell, who played the titular role of Oliver Queen and The Green Arrow since 2012, responded to the show ending on Twitter with the following:
While there is no word on how the show will end, it does time out with next year's crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths, as every show in the Arrowverse usually share screen-time for the yearly crossover around each show's tenth episode.
As alluded to in this past year's crossover, this could be the sacrifice Oliver Queen made to The Monitor. We just wish it didn't mean the original Arrowverse show didn't have to go away with it.
Here is what some of the other cast members of the show had to say about the show ending next season:
