Everyone here at FanBolt is excited about the final season of Arrow of the CW, and no one knew more about it than series creator Marc Guggenheim and director James Bamford. Both creatives kept details pretty far under their hats, but we heard some great teasers about what’s in store for season eight.
From Guggenheim, we know that the first episode of this season is going to be a mirror of the series pilot. We’ll be looking for a few last scenes on Lian Yu, at the very least. (Arrow star Stephen Amell alluded to something similar. Look for our Comic-Con interview with him!) Of the season pacing, Guggeheim says, “the entire season is the series finale,” so we’ll be on the edge of our seats!
James Bamford, who’s directed 15 episodes of the show since 2015, will be directing the series finale. He mentions crying when he read the final scene, and I have the feeling he won’t be alone! “Only word I can use to describe it is ‘perfect’.” Check out what else he has to say below!
Don’t miss the Arrow season 8 premiere on October 15th on the CW!
