‘Arrow’ Gets Send Off From ‘The Flash’ Star Grant Gustin

After the news that “Arrow” will be ending after the eighth season, fellow actors have reacted to the news on social media.

Grant Gustin who plays Barry Allen aka The Flash on “The Flash”, a spin-off of “Arrow” turned to Instagram to express himself, saying that it “kinda just hit me.”

“Ever since I started doing this, it’s always been “Flash & Arrow” (or really this should of said “Arrow & Flash” on it’s cover….right, Stephen?),” Gustin said in a lengthy post referencing a TV Guide cover of the two of them.

He notes that he hardly gets to see “Arrow” star Stephen Amell because of scheduling, “but when we’re brought together for those [gruelling] crossover episodes, it always results in something pretty special.”

“It’s just absolutely bananas to stand around with that many people in super suits, and get paid to play make believe on tv. It’s something that wouldn’t happen year after year if it weren’t for the groundwork that Arrow, Stephen and the whole cast and crew laid for us,” Gustin adds.

He continues to explain the “different kind of passion” Amell had towards the show and “how much care he’s always put towards it.”

The message ends with him congratulating the entire cast and crew “on a bada** show that will live on forever.” Teasing, “Maybe this means we can hang out more?”

It kinda just hit me this morning that Arrow will be leaving us next year. Ever since I started doing this, it’s always been “Flash & Arrow” (or really this should of said “Arrow & Flash” on it’s cover….right, Stephen?)We don’t get to see a lot of each other, because we both work very similar schedules, on different shows, for 9 1/2 months out of the year. But when we’re brought together for those grueling crossover episodes, it always results in something pretty special. And not JUST a special kind of hell. It’s just absolutely bananas to stand around with that many people in super suits, and get paid to play make believe on tv. It’s something that wouldn’t happen year after year if it weren’t for the groundwork that Arrow, Stephen and the whole cast and crew laid for us. Not just that, but Stephen has always brought a different kind of passion to his show and the whole Arrowverse. It’s always been clear to me how much it means to Stephen to have the privilege of getting to go on this journey as Oliver Queen. And how much care he’s always put towards it. I will never forget ohh soo many memories we shared together during our hundreds, if not thousands of hours of crossover filming. Thank you to everyone who was a part of making Arrow for letting me come on this journey with you all. Congratulations on a badass show that will live on forever. I’ll never forget binge watching season one and being scared shitless my first day on set, seeing you all in person. Stephen, you’re a legend. Maybe this means we can hang out more?

Emily Bett Rickards, who plays Felicity Smoak on “Arrow” also used Instagram to break her silence on the fate of the show.

She couldn’t “find the words” to “say what the last seven years have meant” but the picture of the cast together “sums it up. It’s a cuddle puddle.”

“Without this show I would have not met the inspiring people pictured here nor those I have gotten to work with and get to work with everyday,” she wrote. “People who have become my family. I’m excited to see what is in store for the story we have been telling. I’m excited and nervous.”

I’ve been trying to find the words to simply say what the last seven years have meant to me, and I believe this photo sums it up! It’s a cuddle puddle. Everyone here is exhausted and smiling. Everyone here looks at home. The incredible mind of my friend @schwartzapproved will be taking Arrow into its 8th & final season sending it off with pride, power and love. Without this show I would have not met the inspiring people pictured here nor those I have gotten to work with and get to work with everyday. People who have become my family. I’m excited to see what is in store for the story we have been telling. I’m excited and nervous. A combination of emotions Felicity Smoak vibrates at frequently. Needless to say without the last seven years I wouldn’t have met her… Thank you to all of you for your massive support, passion and accompanying us on this journey. It’s because of you we found each other. 🥂

Amell issued a tearful video, announcing that “Arrow” would be no longer. “A large part of this decision is because I’m now a father and a husband and a lot of my life and interests don’t really reside in Vancouver anymore and thinking that’s the best thing for me personally and professionally,” he said.

“Arrow” is currently in the middle of the seventh season. In the Autumn, the show will return for its final 10-episode season. You can watch the show on Mondays at 8 p.m on The CW.
