There’s no need to worry if Arrow will be cancelled or renewed for a ninth season on The CW. The network has already announced that season eight is the end. Could strong ratings ensure that an Arrow spin-off series is produced? Stay tuned.
An action-adventure series, the Arrow TV show stars Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Katie Cassidy, Rick Gonzalez, Juliana Harkavy, Katherine McNamara, Ben Lewis, Joseph David-Jones, and Charlie Barnett. Others appearing in the final season include Willa Holland, Colton Haynes, Colin Donnell, Josh Segarra, John Barrowman, Susanna Thompson, LaMonica Garrett, Rila Fukushima, Byron Mann, Lexa Doig, and Audrey Marie Anderson. The series begins with billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Amell) being shipwrecked and presumed dead for five years. He returns home to Star City, bent on righting the wrongs of his family and fighting injustice as the Green Arrow. In season eight, following the arrival of a godlike being called The Monitor (LaMonica Garett), Oliver leaves his home, his family, and his team behind to take on his most challenging battle yet with the entire multiverse at stake.
