What’s This TV Show About?
A CW superhero adventure drama set in the DC Comics universe, Arrow stars Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Echo Kellum, Rick Gonzalez, Juliana Harkavy, Colton Haynes, Kirk Acevedo, and Katie Cassidy. Five years after surviving a ship-wreck in the South China sea, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Amell) returns home a changed man. Now, disguised as the Green Arrow, he’s back in Star City and bent on righting his family’s wrongs. Although Oliver has solidified his crime-fighting force, enemies from his past return to threaten it, leaving him to reconsider his relationships with his chosen family.
Season Seven Ratings
The seventh season of Arrow averaged a 0.34 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.09 million viewers. Compared to season six, that’s down by 21% in the demo and down by 14% in viewership. Learn how Arrow stacks up against the other CW TV shows.
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. I don’t see it getting cancelled this year and would expect it to get a newsworthy “final season renewal” (whatever season that may be), rather than just peter out. I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and update this page as news develops. Subscribe for free updates on any Arrow cancellation or renewal news.
