This fall will bring us two momentous events when it comes to the DC comics-based shows on The CW. In just a few months time, we'll be treated to the very last episode of Arrow, the series that started the interconnected DC universe on the network, once it completes its shortened Season 8. And, fans will also be treated to the sixth, and largest, crossover between the Arrow-verse shows, the now much-hyped Crisis on Infinite Earths event.

Now, if you had been of the opinion that fans such as yourself were the only ones who were getting all riled up and excited at the thought of the many treats and surprises that are sure to come out of Crisis on Infinite Earths this season, well, take comfort in the fact that you are very wrong, indeed. Arrow star Stephen Amell has finally gotten a hold of the synopsis that spells out just how the major event will shake out this year, and...He. Is. Pumped. Here's what he had to say:

Oh, my! Look at Stephen Amell, getting a little salty in the language department, there, sir. But, I have to say, fans everywhere really appreciate his enthusiasm, as well as this hint at how cool and potentially mind-blowing Crisis on Infinite Earths will be. Curse away, Stephen Amell. Curse away!

We've been getting some great information on some of what we can expect to see from this season's crossover, and we already know that there are plenty of cool things on the way. For starters, as I mentioned earlier, Crisis on Infinite Earths will be the largest crossover yet. Taking place across five shows, Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and Batwoman will all play a big part this year. The event will also start before winter hiatus and wrap up once the shows return in early 2020.

We also know that the foundation for Crisis on Infinite Earths was set up in last season's Elseworlds crossover, and this year will finally see Monitor join forces with his chosen heroes to stop the event which might destroy the multiverse, courtesy of his anti-matter arch-nemesis Anti-Monitor. LaMonica Garrett is returning for 10 episodes this year (playing both roles this time) to help get things rolling and, probably finish off Arrow and Oliver Queen's storyline to boot.

There will also be fancy-pants guest stars aplenty in the crossover episodes, with many giving us visions of DC heroes past, or versions of some popular characters who've never been in live action before. Along for the ride will be Burt Ward (who played Robin in the original Batman series), legendary Batman / Bruce Wayne voice actor Kevin Conroy (who's never played the character in live action until now), at least two versions of Superman (add Tom Welling, please!) and some of the heroes from Black Lightning (previously unconnected to the Arrow-verse even though it's another DC show) are also confirmed to appear.

Phew! We don't even know everything yet, and that's a LOT to be VERY excited about. No wonder Stephen Amell pulled out all the stops in his short Twitter post to tell us just how awesome the crossover will be this year, and he hasn't even seen the full scripts yet!

Stephen Amell will begin his last Arrow journey this fall when Season 8 hits The CW on Tuesday, October 15 at 9 p.m. EST and we can all experience the (basically guaranteed) ultimate badassness of Crisis on Infinite Earths when that event kicks off on Sunday, December 8 at 8:00 p.m. EST.
