The CW pulls out Arrow

The CW is bringing down the curtain on its longest-running DC Comics series, Arrow, after its forthcoming eighth season.

Arrow’s final eighth season airs this year

Arrow was created for The CW in the US by Warner Bros Television and is written by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg, who also serve as producers.

It tells the story of Oliver Queen, who assumes the identity of a hooded vigilante at night to fight crime, and is sold by Warner Bros International Television Distribution.

The show, which will debut its final 10-part run this year, proved an international success and was last year acquired by Viacom International Media Networks-owned Paramount Network in the UK, marking its third sale in the country.

Satcaster Sky1 previously acquired the series, while Amazon secured UK SVoD rights in 2014. It has also spawned a number of spin-offs, including The Flash and Supergirl.

The drama launched on The CW in 2012 and is based on DC character Green Arrow and stars Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Emily Bett Rickards, Echo Kellum, John Barrowman and Paul Blackthorne.
