One of the CW’s Arrowverse shows will come to an end…and it’s the first and flagship show, Arrow. The show will have an 8th and final season of 10 episodes. Star Stephen Amell broke the news today on Twitter

Arrow will return for a final run of 10 episodes this Fall.
There’s so much to say… for now I just want to say thank you.
Arrow executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Beth Schwartz released a joint statement: “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.”
Arrow spawned a franchise for DC Comics on the CW, with three more successful shows – The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl, and a fifth series, Batwoman, is set to join next season.
