Arrow might be coming to an end, with season 8 acting as a final season to wrap up the series. However, it is not the end of Star City, which will find itself continuing its story beyond this season. The CW has revealed the decision of an Arrow spin-off which would revolve around the lives of The Canaries, Dinah Drake, Mia Smoak and Laurel Lance. One of the episodes in the final season of Arrow – season 8 – will act as the backdoor pilot for the spin-off series.

“We’re always talking about it,” Guggenheim explained. “Like, those conversations are always being had. There is nothing that, you know, has gone so far down the road that we’ve, you know — I wouldn’t certainly not going to announce it here. But all the showrunners talk, and stuff like that comes up all the time,” Guggenheim continued. “Right now, honestly, like, I think, you know, as far as Beth and the other showrunners of the shows, everyone is focused on launching their seasons, getting their season premieres finished, getting ready for the crossover. Everything sort of post-Arrow’s life, you know, we’re going to have those conversations, but further down the road.”
