Though not quite perfect, this last season does a commendable job of tying up most lose threads, and paying respect to the hero whom spawned a legion of spin-offs shows.

Full of Easter eggs and nods 'n' winks that are utterly rewarding for long-time fans... gives a marvellous send-off to a show that will be remembered by genre fans for decades to come.

With most of the plot-threads already neatly wrapped up in the previous season, there wasn't much else to do but wait for the crossover and then call it a day.

May 5, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Despite its shortcomings, Arrow has always been a worthwhile watch due to Stephen Amell's assured charisma in the role of Oliver Queen, and it's only right that the show is bowing out on its - and his - own terms.

Nov 13, 2019 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Even with the sci-fi twist applied, Arrow is still the Arrow you've come to know and love after all these years. If anything, it's already proving to be a fitting end to an incredible journey.

Audience Reviews for Arrow: Season 8

  • Jan 20, 2021
    Worst season, sorry, loved this show but too many new elements and the fast forward future stuff and handing over is just not as good as where it started.
  • Dec 30, 2020
    This didn't felt like arrow realistic , grounded and dark like the first two seasons . It was just a prelude for the crossover crisis on infinite earths and it felt like a sci-fi show that forgot what arrow was and I hate green arrow's daughter because she is lame and she sucks as a hero

    It was just unbelievable

    Arrow Season 8 is in of the best seasons in this show. Not only does it give an amazing send off to Oliver Queen, but it brings back characters such as Rory, Tommy, Moira, Lance, William and many more. I cant think of an episode that I really dislike. Green Arrow and the Canaries was a slow episode but that's really it. Crisis On Infinite Earths Hour 4 was just amazing and its one of the best crossovers. Oliver's Funeral was pretty sad honestly, and I liked how they teased Diggle with the Green Lantern ring at the end. The main villain, The Anti Monitor was a great villain and Oliver trying to save himself from the inevitable and then finding out he cant was a great play to make. Overall this season has an amazing send off for the Emerald Archer. I would highly recommend this season.

    Arrow is the best TV series

    Pretty sad this show has to end after such a huge season. No more flashbacks only the future counts. How they handled Olivers ending was just amazing. And I really hope the Canary Spin-Off is coming - the Pilot was great with Mia Queen.

    Arrow had 8 seasons and apart from a few seasons was a great show, season 8 was a great send off and tribute to the show and also aired a back door pilot which i really hope they pick up because i think arrow is a great show
