"Arrow" season 6 is the latest primetime TV series reported since the past week in danger of cancelation. Could it be the last season for "Arrow"? Green Arrow himself Stephen Amell has finally spoken about the truth behind the reports. Amell admitted that he is not happy with the show's creative direction.
"Arrow" Season 6 Cancelation
First hints have been dropped pointing to "Arrow" season 6 could be the last for the show. According to a report from Cosmic Booknews, "the clock could be ticking on the show that started it all: Stephen Amell thinks 'Arrow' is at crossroads following a tonally turbulent season."
In a similar report, Amell is honest to drop a statement saying, "We're either going to do what we do and do it well, or it's the last year." According to the actor, the creative team behind the show has been laying down their last cards to bring back the glory it once had during the first three seasons. He added that the team is still on the lookout for the right formula to elongate the life-term of the show, which he thinks is "hard work and playing to your strengths."
Amell Not Happy With Creative Direction
In another report, the 35-year-old actor admitted that he is not happy with the creative direction of season 4. Amell told Entertainment Weekly, "That happened for me in the latter half of season 4, where I feel like there were just a few things that got lost." Despite the debacles they had faced in the previous season, the actor is optimistic that "Arrow" season 5's cast and crew will be able to rise from the ashes.
For now, the team is currently working to coordinate with "The Flash," "Supergirl," and "Legends of Tomorrow" for its crossover. "Arrow" season 5 airs Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. ET on The CW.
