Will The CW cancel or renew Arrow for season eight? The ratings are down once again but it’s the cornerstone of the network’s DC programming franchise.

Finally!!! What a sht show that never respect the source material!!! It should end long time ago~~~!!!
Will i think they should cancel Arrow because i rather there be a superman series or some other type of show and series..
I’ve watched every episode many times. I’m a little disappointed this season, but we’re only half way. Need more action. It’s gotten a little toned down. Sorry to see Curtis go. If Arrow was to end they need season 8 to tie up lose ends. Maybe if Batwoman starts this year it will give everything a boost.
I was praying for season 8. Glad they renewed it once again. Best cape show ever.
Arrow needs come back with a season 8 it will need to show more of happened to his city that makes it so bad in the future that was showed in the flashbacks .
Arrow needs a season 8 because the show it is so amazing !
Please end it need to end time up.
