What’s This TV Show About?
Airing on The CW television network, Arrow stars Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Willa Holland, Paul Blackthorne, Echo Kellum, Rick Gonzalez, Juliana Harkavy, 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 fighting injustice and 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 Six Ratings
The sixth season of Arrow is averaging a 0.48 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 1.39 million viewers. Compared to season five, that’s down by 23% and down by 21%, respectively. Learn how Arrow stacks up against the other CW TV shows.
Although it premiered with lower ratings than last year, is still too soon to use the numbers to predict whether The CW will cancel or renew Arrow for season seven. So, let’s look at what we do know. Despite sizable, sustained ratings declines, it still finished as the network’s fourth best performing series in the 2016-17 television season. Flying blind, I suspect The CW will renew Arrow for a seventh (and possibly final) season.
Last year’s top three CW TV shows are also set in the DC Comics universe: The Flash, Supergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Since Arrow already has a good syndication package, the big picture here is the health of the entire franchise. I can’t see them risking that audience by mistreating the show which started it all. This is all just speculation, though, so I’ll keep an eye on the Nielsens and update here as appropriate. Subscribe for free updates on any Arrow cancellation or renewal news.
