Although Arrow was forced to endure a shift to another night for the first time in its history at the beginning of this season, the daddy of The CW’s shared DC TV universe is still going strong. Not only that, but it’s been confirmed to return for the 2018-19 broadcast season along with the rest of its sister series.
So, while we wait to see what this year’s concluding episode has in store, we’re all wondering how the network will shuffle its prime time lineup going forward. After all, we’d be fools not to expect some alterations come fall.
Speaking of which, lead actor Stephen Amell raised more than a few eyebrows when appearing at Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in Nashville this past weekend, offering this cryptic statement:
“I’m gonna be in New York on Thursday for The CW’s Upfronts. And I get to make a really fun announcement. And The CW is just so freaked out that I’m going to spoil it at some point during this panel.”
Now, it should be noted that he didn’t refer to the series on which he stars outright, so it could be some kind of general announcement regarding the Arrowverse as a whole. Or, the show could be on the move yet again, for Sundays have been added to The CW’s prime time schedule. Who knows, they may even want to use a proven commodity as a way to attract viewers for that night?
Keep in mind that this’ll go down at 10 am EST that very morning, so it’s highly doubtful whatever Amell is pulling back the curtain on will spoil Arrow‘s season finale set to air on Thursday night. And with early word saying said episode will be a game-changer, we’re assuming that all involved want the surprises to remain preserved until showtime.
