Arrow‘s eighth and remaining season continues tonight, showcasing the ultimate chapter on Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) remaining journey. While followers will solely get to see the second of the ultimate season’s ten episodes tonight, it feels like these working behind-the-scenes simply handed a fairly bittersweet milestone. On Tuesday, sequence showrunner Beth Schwartz took to Twitter to disclose that the present’s writers room is in its final official day. She accompanied the tweet with the rather-appropriate hashtag “#EndOfAnEra”.

Seeing as sure key units for the sequence are already being taken down, and Amell just lately revealed that he solely as one episode of the sequence left to movie, the truth that the writers room is coming to a detailed each is and is no surprise. Still, it is one more heartbreaking indication of the sequence’ impending finish. The remaining batch of episodes will see Oliver touring all through key places and moments from the sequence, culminating in a fairly epic ending for the character.
“It’s what I want,” Amell stated in an interview earlier this summer season. “I pitched it for a very long time. It’s what I want, but concurrently, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t surprises along the way. I was floored when I got the pitch for the crossover. I don’t see it coming — nobody sees it coming. It’s going to be so rad.”
“The excellent news is in contrast to Game of Thrones or in contrast to Lost, weren’t burdened with having to reply a query,” consulting producer Marc Guggenheim instructed ComicBook.com in July. “We’re not burdened with ‘who’s going to sit on the Iron Throne?’ or “what was the island?’ so we get to do, I believe, a way more character-based ending. So, on the identical time, the complication for us is that we even have “Crisis” and I believe so much of the stuff that was at all times in my head in phrases of the right way to finish the present we’re now really going to finish up doing within the crossover as a substitute so it is like now what does the sequence finale grow to be? But, you realize, we have got plans.”
“I’m actually enthusiastic about it.” Guggenheim continued. “The aim is to make it satisfying for the followers, however the excellent news for us is we do not have the challenges that Lost or Game of Thrones had,” he continued. We also don’t have the ratings, so there’s that, too. But I feel the pain of Damon, Benioff, and Weiss. It’s hard. It’s a hard thing to do in a way that satisfies everyone. I also think, because I’ve been thinking how does one end a series, there’s what the initial reaction to something is and then there’s how it stands the test of time and those two things are not always the same.”
Arrow airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on The CW.
