Arrow is targeting a seven season run, based on lead Stephen Amell‘s contract.
Taking to Facebook, Amell quashed suggestions he’s set to leave the series by revealing that he’s actually contracted through 2019, at least:
I keep reading that I’m leaving Arrow. I’m not. I have a contract that runs through 2019. At least. Now… That doesn’t mean Arrow will run that long, but if it does… I’ll be here. Any other questions I can answer?
While this doesn’t mean Arrow will definitely run that long (as noted by Amell), it does, in theory, give the show scope to continue through Season 7 with its leading player, renewal and other internal/external factors permitting.
Arrow is current on Season 4, chasing a fifth season renewal.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the status of Arrow Season 5…
