Arrow has been running for a long time- seven years to be precise and it has seen its fair share of ups and down. Now Arrow star Stephen Amell has shared that he once thought that the show should end with season 7 until he heard the idea for season 8.
Why Season 8 Of Arrow Will Be Its Most Interesting Yet?
Fans of Arrow or of the Arrowverse will know that star Stephen Amell has played Oliver Queen aka the Green Arrow since the show premiered in 2012. Arrow has gone through many changes since season 1, with several characters exiting the series and entering it. But the most notable changes introduced in the show were in its seventh season.
In the seventh season viewers were introduced to star city in the year 2040 and also to Oliver Queen’s grown up children Mia and William. That plot thread along with the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths event is generating a lot of interest. Will Oliver Queen die and leave his children as his legacy? These kind of questions are circulating all over the Internet.
Why Stephen Amell Stuck Around For Arrow Season 8?
In a Facebook video posted last night (via Comic Book), Amell revealed that he was initially hesitant about taking Arrow past season 7. He stated:
“I think that we’ve had our running time… I felt like we had done our thing. I thought that ultimately, theoretically season 7 should have been the end of things.”
But Stephen further acknowledged that the structure of season 8 made him change his mind. He went on to say that:
“But to come back and do 10 episodes… What they’ve done with this final season is really cool. It’s like nothing you guys have ever seen. Every episode that comes out, it’s like ‘Wait a minute, what? It’s happening what and where and how? Ok, that’s cool. Let’s do it!'”
Also Amell shared that Oliver’s journey played a role in his decision. He said:
“My character’s had a chance over the first three episodes to reconcile with like five different characters and that’s just really, really cool.”
Arrow will return this fall for a 10 episode final season. It is being theorized that the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover will be the final episode of the show. Whether Oliver will show up in other Arrowverse shows or rather if he will even survive or not is anybody’s guess. What we can say is that we can’t wait for Crisis on Infinite Earths.
