Scoop: Arrow To Have 23 Episodes For Season One

Craig Byrne November 27, 2012 9

Here’s a treat, just in time for a new episode to air on Wednesday night…

We all knew that Arrow had been picked up for a “full season;” what we didn’t know is that, surely due to the success of the series thus far, we’re getting something more!

What’s that?

GreenArrowTV has gotten official confirmation that Arrow Season 1 will comprise of 23 episodes, not just 22 as originally suspected.

What does that mean for us, the fans? Well, for starters, one less week of repeats between now and the May finale of the show. It also means another good hour of television!

Arrow’s Wednesday night companion, Supernatural, also gets 23 episodes this year.

Come talk about this news on our forum!

    Good news! I wonder if this news means we might get a 2-Part finale.

      That would be awesome! With 23 episodes, the chances that they would make 22 and 23 into one big 2 hour event, are high! I hope it happens! 😀

        I think they might do a 2 part finale. But it depends because both Arrow and Supernatural have 23 episodes this season so if Arrow gets a two part finale then that means they would have to move one show back to get the 2 hours or they would have to have the finale on two different weeks.

    Why do they do that sometimes? They did that for Nikita Season 1. Excited for more Arrow. Everyone on that show is extremely unrealistically gorgeous. 😛

    But with Supernatural also having 23 episodes, the chances of a 2hour finale may be not so good. But if Supernatural would also get a 2 hour (Series-) Finale, the chances would be good.
