After much anticipation over the confirmation of another season, stars Stephen Amell and Emily Bett Rickards took to Twitter Thursday to confirm that Arrow has been renewed.
At the TCA winter press tour in January, The CW president Mark Pedowitz hinted that renewal was imminent for the the comic book series. The Flash, originally intended to be a spin-off of Arrow, is also getting it's own epic launch.
"Rather than try to squeeze in a spinoff, [we thought] let's try to make it a bigger pilot, so if we do launch a new series, let's launch it with a bang like we did with Arrow," Pedowitz told Zap2It.
Shows like Hart of Dixie and the Sex & The City prequel, The Carrie Diaries, may have to wait until May to hear their fate. As previously reported, Supernatural, The Vampire Diaries, Reign and The Originals were also renewed.
The renewal of the series was never really doubted, as Arrow has garnered a massive fan base, mostly done through the way the actors interact personally with their fans.
Comicbook.com reports that the network places an large amount of faith in their lead to keep fans hyped about the show, often giving Amell press images to post to his personal Facebook page before posting on the official page.
Arrow airs on The CW Wednesdays at 8/7c and will return with new episodes on Feb. 26.
