Oliver Queen and his team will get to continue their battle for justice. The CW has renewed their Arrow TV show for an eighth season for 2019-20.
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.
Currently in its seventh season on The CW, Arrow is currently averaging a 0.43 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 1.29 million viewers. Compared to season six, that’s even in the demo and up by 2% in viewership. There was little question that Arrow would be renewed.
Today, The CW also announced that nine other TV shows had been renewed for the 2019-20 season: Black Lightning, Charmed, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Dynasty, The Flash, Legacies, Riverdale, Supergirl, and Supernatural. The fates of All American and Roswell, New Mexico have yet to be announced.
