Critic Reviews for Arrow: Season 6

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

A slow and at times meandering affair.

While this isn't Arrow at its very best, it's still a show that is hugely enjoyable for the most part.

Season 6 captured the show at its best and worst, with a strong finish redeeming months of disappointment.

While [some] moments... add to my frustration with how some of the narratives throughout the season play out, it conveys perfectly, yet again, how much Oliver has grown.

There is odd but kinda good "chemistry" now vibing from those [Diggle and Dinah]. #DontGoThere!

December 27, 2017 | Full Review…

There's every chance that after this entertaining but workmanlike premiere, Arrow will go in a direction we'd never expect. Hell, if it doesn't, that's not necessarily bad news.

Audience Reviews for Arrow: Season 6


The series still struggles with the 22 episode melodramatic seasons. CW would be wise to drop the show to 15 and strengthen the overall arc, ignoring the flashbacks. This was an improvement over number 5 but only slight. The mayor arc has not worked and fails to enhance the Green Arrow moments. I hope they return to season one storytelling for the next season, get back to the core of the character, it is starting to feel like Smallville, which is not a good thing. 23/09/2018.
