Since its debut in 2012, Arrow has been one of the most popular comic book-based programs on TV, being the series that launched The CW's Arrowverse. But the saga of Oliver Queen will soon come to an end, and changes are bound to happen in the show's eighth and final season. One of those changes, according to showrunner Beth Schwartz, is one last new introduction from series star Stephen Amell.
In an interview with ETonline, Schwartz discussed what made the upcoming Season 8 different from the previous seasons, which included the aforementioned introduction from Amell.
"Yes, we will have a new [introduction] this season," Schwartz said. "We had a new one last season and there will be a new one this year as well. It's the last one."
Since the first season of the series, introductions from Amell recapping the show for each episode have been a staple of Arrow. This has since been carried over to other Arrowverse programs such as The Flash and Supergirl, and may continue into new shows in the franchise, as The CW is looking to bring another DC Comics property to the small screen for 2020/2021.
Returning Tuesday, Oct. 15 at 9 pm 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, Colton Haynes as Arsenal and Katie Cassidy as Black Siren.
