The American superhero television series Arrow is going to end after the upcoming eighth season.
The star Stephen Amell took over the media emotionally to reveal officially that Arrow is going to conclude in the next 10 episodes.
Actually, the 37 years old actor once revealed that he would be leaving Arrow at the end of the sixth season. Amell told in an interview:
Towards the end of season six, I approached Berlanti, Arrow's executive producer, and said that I thought both personally and professionally, that at the end of my commitment the coming season, it would be the best for me and move on.
Moreover, he lasted for two more seasons, but as the show is being shortened to only 10 episodes and end with the final eight seasons.
The Canadian actor with teary eyes confessed on Facebook live that he would like to thank his family; specifically my wife Cassandra and five years old daughter Maverick for putting up with him on such really stupid hours.
As Stephen Amell further explained, my family is in living in Los Angles, while the shooting of the series in Vancouver. He said:
A large part of this decision is because I'm now a father and a husband and a lot of my life and interests don't really reside in Vancouver anymore and thinking that's the best thing for me personally and professionally.
Starting the live video he admitted that he would turn off the comments as he would cry reading those comments.
On the other hand, Via The Hollywood Reporter in a joint statement executive producers Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim and showrunner Beth Schwartz confirmed the end of the CW's Arrow end.
The writer/producers said: 'This was a difficult decision to come to, but like every hard decision we’ve made for the past seven years, it was with the best interests of Arrow in mind.'
They added,‘We’re heartened by the fact that Arrow has birthed an entire universe of shows that will continue on for many years to come.'
