Arrow: Amell Teases Oliver's Ending - 'It's What I Pitched For A Long Time'

The upcoming eighth season of The CW's Arrow will be the last for the Emerald Archer. However, while that's a tough pill for some fans to swallow, series star Stephen Amell appears to be in agreement with the impending fate of Oliver Queen.

"It's what I want," Amell told TV Guide. "I pitched it for a very long time. It's what I want, but concurrently, like, that doesn't mean that there aren't surprises along the way."

Amell then went on to discuss the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, which will encompass all five Arrowverse shows, saying, "I was floored when I got the pitch for the crossover. I don't see it coming. Nobody sees it coming. It's gonna be so rad."

Returning Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW, Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Rick Gonzalez as Wild Dog, Juliana Harkavy as Black Canary, Katie Cassidy as Black Siren, Katherine McNamara as Mia Smoak, Joseph David-Jones as Connor Hawke and Ben Lewis as William Clayton-Queen.
