Stephen Amell returns as Green Arrow on ‘Flash’ last season

For years, DC comics‘ TV shows were collectively known as the Arrowverse, thanks to the fact that they all slowly spun out of The CW’s Arrow. And for a while it was a fitting term, as there was a whole slew of DC shows on the air (and occasionally crossing over) e.g. The lightning, Super girl, Legends of Tomorrow, Batwomanand Black Lightning. But Arrow – cast member Stephen Amell like the DC hero Green Arrow — ended in 2020, and right now there’s only one Arrowverse series left, The lightning. And it is scheduled to end with its upcoming ninth season.

But the show, and the Arrowverse in general, will at least go out in style — and its title character will return one last time with the news that Amell will re-appear as Oliver Queen in The lightninglast season.

Here was The lightning executive producer Eric Wallace on the news of Stephen Amell’s return (via Variety):

As soon as our final season was announced, we knew we wanted Stephen to come back and reprise his iconic role as Oliver Queen. After all, it was Oliver who originally launched Barry Allen on his heroic path. That’s why everyone on Team Flash felt so strongly that it was important to create a full-circle moment with Oliver’s return in the final season of ‘The Flash’ … The result is an epic-yet-emotional episode that we hope the Arrowverse- fans will have fun. That’s all to say “thank you” to everyone for watching and supporting our show over nine wonderful years.

The ultimate end of the Arrowverse is timed well with the new regime at DC Studios, with James Gunn and Peter Safran now responsible for creating a cohesive universe of movies, shows, games and more. And thanks to the multiverse, you never know when one or more of these Arrowverse characters might pop up in the future.

The lightning Season 9 premieres on The CW on February 8. Amell appears in episode 9 of the season.
