The CW has released the promo images for Arrow‘s highly-anticipated series finale episode titled “Fadeout,” offering us a glimpse at the show’s present post-Crisis world that Oliver had created during the crossover’s ending. The stills have also confirmed the appearance of Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen and Caity Lotz’s Sara Lance, who both made their first appearances in the show before going on to star in their own respective Arrowverse shows.
The series finale photos also teased the return of Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity Smoak, Willa Holland as Thea Queen, and Colton Haynes as Roy Harper along with previously dead characters including Susanna Thompson’s Moira Queen and Sea Shimooka’s Emiko Queen. The final episode is scheduled to air next week on January 28. Check out the full photos in the gallery below!
Directed by James Bamford from a script written by Marc Guggenheim and Beth Schwartz, episode 8.10’s official synopsis reads: “STEPHEN AMELL SIGNS OFF AS THE GREEN ARROW; EMILY BETT RICKARDS RETURNS FOR THE SERIES FINALE OF “ARROW” — After eight seasons, and the launch of countless superheroes, the series wraps up the story of the Green Arrow (Stephen Amell).”
After spending time at Slabside, Oliver Queen wanted to give back to the city that he loves. Since everyone knows his true identity, Team Arrow worked alongside SCPD as vigilantes to help protect the city at all costs. However, last season led to Oliver finding out about Emiko, the bow-wielding assassin and ring leader of the Ninth Circle who also happened to be his half-sister. The season 7 finale saw them fighting for their lives-both in the present and the future. So, what will the state of Team Arrow look like in the show’s eighth and final season?
Arrow stars Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen, David Ramsey as John Diggle, Katie Cassidy as Laurel/Black Siren, Rick Gonzalez as Rene Ramirez/Wild Dog, and Juliana Harkavy as Dinah Drake/Black Canary. Charlie Barnett (Russian Doll) has joined the cast as Diggle, Jr. — known as J.J. — the Flashpoint-born son of John Diggle (David Ramsey) and Lyla Michaels (Audrey Marie Anderson). We’ll meet J.J. in the future as the leader of the Deathstroke Gang, where he faces off against Mia and his adopted brother, Connor.
Based on the DC characters, the series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Wendy Mericle and Sarah Schechter. The show is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
