Arrow is an American superhero television series developed by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Andrew Kreisberg based on the DC Comics character Green Arrow, a costumed crime-fighter created by Mort Weisinger and George Papp, and is set in the Arrowverse with other related television series.
The series premiered in the United States on The CW on October 10, 2012, and was primarily filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. In January 2019, The CW renewed the series for a ten-episode eighth season, announcing in March that it would be the final season. The season premiered on October 15, 2019 and featured the “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event; the series finale aired on January 28, 2020.
The series follows billionaire playboy Oliver Queen, who spent five years shipwrecked on the mysterious island Lian Yu, before returning home to Starling City.
In season one, Oliver returns to Starling City and is reunited with his family and friends, including Tommy Merlyn and Laurel Lance. By night, he acts as a vigilante, known as “The Hood”, hunting down those listed in his father’s notebook, with assistance from John Diggle and Felicity Smoak. A conspiracy known as “The Undertaking”, led by Malcolm Merlyn, threatens the city. The season also features flashbacks to Oliver’s first year on the island, and his struggle to survive, alongside both new allies, including Slade Wilson, and foes.
In season two, following the death of Tommy Merlyn, Oliver vows to no longer kill. Operating under new alias “The Arrow” this is tested when the city comes under attack from Slade. He also struggles to balance his vigilante activities alongside his role as CEO of Queen Consolidated. The season sees the return of Sara Lance, now also known as “The Canary”, as well as the introduction of government agency A.R.G.U.S and its leader Amanda Waller. The flashbacks see Oliver face a new threat on Lian Yu, as well as revealing the origins of his feud with Slade.
In season three, following Sara’s murder and the loss of his family’s company to Ray Palmer, Oliver refuses to believe he can lead a normal life whilst continuing as The Arrow. He becomes embroiled in a conflict with Ra’s al Ghul, in order to protect his sister Thea. Felicity becomes Vice-President of the now renamed Palmer Technologies and Laurel sets out to follow in Sara’s footsteps, assuming the mantle of Black Canary. The season’s flashbacks see Oliver escape Lian Yu, only to be forced to work with Waller in Hong Kong, attempting to stop the release of a lethal pathogen.
In season four, Oliver and Felicity are living in Ivy Town, but return to the renamed Star City, to fight terrorist group H.I.V.E., led by Damien Darhk. Oliver adopts the moniker “Green Arrow” whilst also running for mayor. The discovery of the existence of his son William, and his decision to conceal the truth, leads to the breakup of his relationship with Felicity. Laurel is killed by Darhk, and Oliver discovers his plan to detonate nuclear weapons. The season’s flashbacks see Oliver returned to Lian Yu by Waller, where he attempts to infiltrate criminal group Shadowspire.
In season five, Oliver and Felicity recruit a new team of vigilantes to aid their mission, including former police detective Dinah Drake, as the new Black Canary. Oliver struggles to adjust to his break-up with Felicity, alongside trying to balance his new role as mayor with the threat posed by the serial killer Prometheus. The season also sees the introduction of an antagonistic version of Laurel Lance, known as Black Siren, a doppelganger from Earth-2, who made her debut during the second season of The Flash. In the season’s flashbacks, Oliver travels to Russia where he joins the Bratva, and is trained by Talia al Ghul, before returning to Lian Yu.
In season six Oliver attempts to balance his vigilantism alongside his role as mayor, whilst also being a father to William, following the death of the boy’s mother. He rekindles his relationship with Felicity, with the pair marrying in the season’s Arrowverse crossover. A new threat in the form of terrorist hacker Cayden James and his criminal gang emerges. When Ricardo Diaz kills James, and with team Arrow facing a bitter split, Oliver is forced to enlist the aid of the FBI, striking a deal that leads to his incarceration in federal prison and his outing as Green Arrow to the public.
In season seven, Felicity seeks new allies to help catch Diaz, and release Oliver from prison. Following his defeat of Diaz and prison release, Oliver and his team are deputized by the SCPD. His half-sister, Emiko Queen, emerges as the new Green Arrow; however, it is later revealed she is the leader of terrorist group the Ninth Circle. The season features flash-forwards to twenty years into the future, with the now adult William receiving a mysterious message. Joining with Oliver’s former allies, he discovers his sister, Oliver and Felicity’s daughter Mia, and works to save the city from a cyber attack.
In the eighth and final season, the Monitor recruits Oliver to aid him in his mission to prevent the coming Crisis. William, Connor Hawke, and Mia mysteriously time travel from 2040 to the present-day Star City. During the Crisis, Oliver sacrifices himself and becomes the Spectre in order to stop the Anti-Monitor. Following their final battle, a new universe is born at the cost of Oliver’s life. However, he is reunited with Felicity in a “paradise dimension”, in the final scene of the series.
