Arrow Season 7: 10 Reasons It Should Be The Last

Will Season 7 fail this TV show?

The CW

The Emerald Archer has been making his presence felt on the small screen for six years now. Arrow debuted on The CW back in 2012 and, in that time, the show has received critical acclaim, broken ratings records, and spawned spinoff shows The Flash, Supergirl, and DC's Legends of Tomorrow. When you think about all that, it's no surprise that the show is credited for reinventing superhero TV.

With its summer hiatus nearly behind it, the Arrowverse originator will return to The CW this fall for its seventh season. With Oliver Queen in prison, Ricardo Diaz in the wind, and a new archer in town, Season 7 promises to be an intriguing one. In fact, there have been rumors that it could be the show's final season, with series star Stephen Amell even claiming that he wants it to be intentionally written that way.

Given where we are at in the story, the idea of this being the show's final season doesn't seem that outlandish. Moreover, after some ups and downs, the show may even benefit from a solid, well-written final act for Oliver Queen.
