Is Arrow Renewed For Season 7 Yet? Is Arrow Renewed For Season 7 Yet?
The CW's Mark Pedowitz discusses whether or not Arrow has been renewed for Season 7. Is Arrow Renewed For Season 7 Yet?

A few weeks ago, certain outlets that were desperate for clicks made headlines out of the notion that Arrow has not yet been renewed for Season 7 — Entertainment Weekly, however, directly asked CW President Mark Pedowitz what’s going on, and got an actual answer about the show’s future, and the futures of the other Arrowverse shows.

“At the moment, it’s a little too soon,” Pedowitz told thm. “We’re noted for announcing at winter TCA that we’re picking up shows, we just weren’t ready to do that yet. A couple more weeks [and] we’ll probably get around to it. I’m pretty confident we’ll see them all back.”

Regarding Arrow, which is currently in Season 6 — also the time when actors often renegotiate contracts — Pedowitz said this: “I cannot discuss casting negotiations, but I do believe some members of the cast are already signed for longer.”

For now, though, nothing is renewed at this time. “We haven’t renewed anything yet,” Pedowitz said. “We’re not quite ready to do that. We’re a couple of weeks out. I’m pretty confident a lot of the [CW] slate is coming back. We’re just not ready to make that a formal announcement yet. It is only Jan. 7. It’s just a question of the board and I getting together and having a discussion about it. We just weren’t ready with the holidays and this came just days later. We’ll get there. I’m confident most of our schedule is coming back.”

    Of course those clickbait news were much ado about nothing, but at the same time, we are reaching the point where I feel the cast, network and producers should start becoming aware of how much longer the show can go. Though we know the ratings for the CW are usually pretty malleable and can be acceptably low, there’s no denying they keep going down. I don’t know about anyone else, but Season 6 hasn’t been doing it for me. Its felt a little bit more aimless without really knowing if its truly leading somewhere. After how phenomenal Season 5 ended up being, I don’t want the show to whimper again.

    The only things I thought were good in season 5, was a better (and different kind) main villain, and better fight choreography. There were only 1 or 2 episodes I would watch again; I can say more about some of the other seasons, but hardly much about the 5th. I cannot say anything about this season so far. I strongly think that the writers are running out of ideas; what they have done so far this season is what I would call “Typical Arrow”. There just have not been any good surprises or shockers this season.. I don’t know about anyone else, but I heard from an interview with the executive producers that they were introducing a bunch of bad guys this season, and the only thing that the mid season finale showed was who they were, and all I can say is that I mostly could guess who many of them were, and I was mostly right. The Flash, Supergirl, and LoT have been doing far better than whatever the Arrow writers are going for at this point. I don’t know how much longer this show can last. But one thing I can say is that when Arrow does reach its end, I will miss most of the main cast.
