Arrow Final Season Watch: The Cast talks Season 8

In a little over a month, the final season of Arrow hits the CW. It’s exciting because we’ll finally get to see how this particularly story ends.

At the same time, the vibe will be bittersweet as fans watch the grandaddy of the Arrow-verse fade to black after a shortened season eight consisting of ten episodes. But that won’t happen until the show unleashes many epic surprises, huge returns and a massive five-hour crossover focusing on DC Comics’ sweeping Crisis on Infinite Earths storyline.

Below the cast talks about the eighth season, their show’s legacy and what they want for their characters before the lights go out on this action-(and angst)-heavy drama.
