During a recent Facebook Live session, Stephen Amell talked to fans about the final season. This was in between scenes as the actor still had some of the eye makeup on. At one point during the session, Stephen Amell dug a bit into why he thought the show should have ended at Season 7 and what made him change his mind.
By the time Season 7 was wrapping up, Stephen Amell felt the show had its run and it was time for it to wrap up. At that point, however, he went on to support the show’s final season by teasing the cool things that will happen:
“I think that we’ve had our running time. That’s what I thought when I talked with Greg Berlanti in Season 6. I felt like we had done our thing. I thought ultimately theoretically Season 7 should’ve ended things. But to come back and do 10 episodes … what they’ve done with this final season is really cool. It’s like nothing you guys have ever seen. Every episode that comes out, it’s like ‘Wait a minute, what? It’s happening what and where and how? Ok, that’s cool. Let’s do it!’”
