Arrow has been renewed for a seventh season by The CW. Arrow Renewed For Season 7

Good news: Arrow is renewed for a seventh season!

The CW waited a bit longer than usual to announce this year’s renewals, but this is certainly good news!

Fellow DC TV series The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Black Lightning all also landed renewals, which makes us wonder if we could have a 5-show crossover coming our way in the Fall.

New episodes of the show air Thursdays at 9PM on The CW.

    Is it weird to say I don’t know how I feel about this? This season has been pretty terrible, imo, and the show is suffering the same problem it has for years now. Repetitiveness. Constantly making the same mistakes in story. I can’t help but feel the same thing will just happen again. It doesn’t help that I don’t like any of the newer characters, even more so after this season, so I think S7 is gonna be a struggle to get through. I’m happy for the actors and crew though.

      I have a feeling the fandom in general might agree with you, Liz. I feel like the elements of a great show are still in Arrow, though if it were up to me, although I like the entire cast and wouldn’t wish losing jobs on anyone, I’d have no problem with it if they cut it down in half and stopped with this inter-team drama. I think it’d help Green Arrow as a character to be more solitary, with just John and Felicity as his team. But it looks like now there will be Oliver/Diggle drama so who knows. >_>

        It makes me sad because Arrow has the potential to be truly something amazing but it’s its own worst enemy, imo. And the trouble with this season is that there are way too many characters dragging things down. Even Oliver feels like a sidekick now. That’s a huge problem. Personally I would get rid of the newer characters or just cut their screentime/focus in half. The fact is the show has never needed more than OTA. Anything more just makes Oliver look useless. Maybe the B team could just appear now and then? I really think they need to cut back, bring back villains of the week and focus on the right characters again.

          I agree with you, Liz. Too many characters. The team didn’t need to be larger than what it was with Oliver, Diggle, Felicity, and Roy. It’s too much now. Also, this drama between OTA and NTA is so forced and doesn’t make sense. Stories go in circles. Characters keep repeating their behaviors. Maybe it was a different writing staff in season 1 and 2 but when Oliver had a secret to keep from his family and friends, and run the family business, he was a much more interesting character. Not wanting to see writers and producers lose their jobs, but this creative team isn’t cutting it… the potential hasn’t been there since Seasons 1 & 2 (and maybe 3). I’m still loyal to the show and will keep watching.

    I wonder if they’ll call it quits for good after season 7. I do believe that Stephen Amell said that he signed a 7-season contract for the show. I wonder if he’s itching to move into other things; on social media he seems to post more about his charity work and Nocking Point Wine than Arrow these past few months.

    Well for what it’s worth I love love them all, but of course there will be people to hate on the shows . Why go through all the trouble to post on its name if I want it to end, isnt there something else u could be doing. The flash, green arrow,supergirl,DC legends, every single episode is effing great! I hope it never ends! All casts are amazing!
