Every season of The CW’s Arrow is now on Netflix where it will remain for the next few years. It will leave Netflix, as other The CW programs that have left, once its contract expires. Here’s our best estimation as to when season 1-8 of Arrow will be leaving Netflix and where it’ll be heading.
Arrow, one of The CW's most popular shows, helped to revive DC series on the tiny US network. Stephen Amell was the playboy billionaire Oliver Queen who works in the clearing out the bad guys' cities.
This series aired its first time in 2013. It has been available on Netflix US ever since September 2014.
What date will Arrow leave? That’s still yet to be officially confirmed but we can look at the likes of The Tomorrow People and 90210 to make a good guess.
It was five years exactly after The Tomorrow People's final episode was uploaded to Netflix.
Arrow Season 8 has been added to Netflix as of February 5, 2020.
If that’s the case for Arrow, we’ll be seeing Arrow leaving Netflix in February 2025. That’s obviously a long time away so gives you plenty of wiggle room to watch Arrow many times over and catch the crossover events too such as the most recent Crisis on Infinite Earths event.
The caped, bow-and-arrow-wielding super-hero series will likely be lost in other Netflix territories as well but it won't affect the US timeline. Unfortunately, we can’t predict when it’ll leave outside the US.
As we’ve covered before, the Arrowverse on Netflix will still be strong going forward. It’ll continue getting new seasons of The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and Black Lightning so long as Warner and The CW keep producing them.
That’s not 100% certain at this point, however smart money would be on HBO Max or DC Universe (assuming it still exists at that point).
HBO Max, Warner Media's attempt to compete with Netflix, is a Warner Media big effort. It has a huge DC collection.
The only thing we’d look to that would say Arrow isn’t heading to HBO Max is that Smallville currently resides on Hulu. The Tomorrow People, the example we used earlier, has yet to find any new home although it’s likely due to the fact it was a co-production between CBS and Warner Brothers Television.
