Arrow Stephen Amell Oliver Queen The CW

Arrow has wrapped filming on the final season, and the stars of the superhero drama have shared lots of heartfelt farewells. It seems like just yesterday that it was announced that Season 8 would be Arrow’s last. Since then, the eighth season has gotten underway and, on-screen, there is still more to come.

Among the things set to go down is the return of Emily Bett Rickards as Felicity for Arrow’s series finale, with an air date for that major episode having already been set. Worth noting is the fact that Rickards will not be the final season’s only return. But, for the cast of Arrow, the journey of filming all of the exciting final season is over.

Taking to Twitter, Arrow’s co-showrunner, Marc Guggenheim, commemorated the last day of production. Guggenheim posted the following farewell message on behalf of himself and fellow Arrow showrunner, Beth Schwartz. It reads:

To the best Cast and Crew in the business:

It's hard to believe that today is here: the final day of production on ARROW. We are so incredibly grateful to each and every one of you for helping us bring this show to life. What this show accomplished is no small feat. Eight seasons. One hundred and seventy episodes. A multiverse of TV shows. The biggest crossovers in television history. One incredible journey from beginning to end. All thanks to you and the countless others that have been a part of this show. So, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you for being a part of Arrow's final story. It has been an honor.

All our best,
Beth & Marc

Today is the last day of filming for #Arrow. I still remember what I was wearing for my audition, what the room was like, my mind being blown that I was cast, my first flight to Vancouver, walking into my first hotel room, the first fitting, meeting @StephenAmell before that meeting and seeing the amount of sushi he was gonna down post-training session, our first day of shooting spent laying on a wet pallet and not wanting it to end. Cut to 2019 and the show has made 170 episodes of television, laid the groundwork for a whole universe of shows not to mention ushered in a new era of television superheroes. I’m proud to have been a part of it over the last 8 seasons but here’s what’s even more wonderful; I have always said that as I move from job to job I’m lucky if I get to keep ONE good friend after I move on. With Arrow I’ve kept more than I thought possible. People who whether I see them once a year or talk to them once a week we pick up right where we left off. That’s my greatest takeaway from my time on Arrow these last 8 seasons. None of that would have been possible without our creators, our writers & directors, the CW, this cast, this crew as lastly YOU the fans. You’re the biggest reason this show became what it is. Thanks for all the memories and for all the fun and to all of my #Arrow family, especially @StephenAmell, Congratulations on a most amazing run.

Where would “Rene” be with out this team? Nowhere. Where would “Rene” be if there was no “Oliver”? Nowhere. Where would this show be without @stephenamell? Nowhere. Or at the very least cancelled wayyyy before season 8. I’ve said this to you before but a fact is a fact: you worked your butt off to make this show successful. That is a great representation of leadership. When I showed up in season 5 you still put in hard work to make this show strong. And you did it smoothly. You set a blueprint. Thank you for embracing me into this world. Congratulations. I remember I ran into @marcguggenheim in Los Angeles back in 2012 when the show aired. Congratulated him on the show, in the back of my mind I thought: “I definitely want to be on that show”. Fast forward to 2016 and I had the opportunity to audition for a small part (or so I thought at the time) on the show. I won’t forget the moment when our costume designer #MayaMani told me I was playing #WildDog ???????????? I jumped for joy. Ran into @davidpaulramsey in Miami for @americanblackfilmfestival and he introduced himself to me and said he looked forward to working with me. Fast forward 3 years later and David is like a big brother to me. ?? Love you bro, you gracefully give to others. It’s beautiful to see. Thank you for being an anchor wherever you are. @julianaharkavy you showed up halfway through the season of 5. Immediately I inherited a sister who wanted to comfort all of us. Continue to be the “mom” we all need on set. ??So grateful to this cast and crew for embracing me half way through this journey. @echokells your so darn funny and talented I hope we can continue to work together! (stay tuned guys!) @katiecassidy you always displayed an undeniable spark with #TheBlackCanary and #TheBlackSiren. And whenever we’re at work you were always sweet and kind. @emilybett it’s nearly impossible to not laugh with you. I was always in awe of your ability to bring #Felicity to life with such fluidity. Thank you for always being a caring actor and peer. (Cont‘d)
