Arrow season 7 could feature more creative risks than ever

ArrowAt the moment, there isn’t all that much in the way of official news out there regarding Arrow season 7 — save for the unfortunate fact that Paul Blackthorne is apparently not going to be a part of it. This is a season that could still be pivotal based on where you are starting with Oliver, and just based on how far into the run the show is. While we don’t think that it’ll be final season, we understand the argument that this is where the writers should put all of their cards on the table. It’s time to go all-in, since everything is really properly set up for that to happen. We’ve got multiple heroes, a great roster of villains, and Oliver and Felicity are officially together. Why wait on anything?

Luckily, it seems as though that Stephen Amell feels that this is the right approach for the upcoming episodes — here is what he had to say on the subject recently to The Music in Australia:

“[The writers] have a very clear vision of what they want Season 7 to be, and what I asked them to do – and it’s not up to me – but what I asked of them is to not just assume that we have an eighth season. I wanted them to write like, ‘If you have a good idea, and you have something you’ve always wanted to do or see on the show, then just do it! Do it right now!’ … “I think that’s one of the things I’m getting out of what they’ve planned for Season 7 — we’re not writing like we’re guaranteed something beyond this, because we’re not; nobody is. I want them to really push forward and take the fact we have a certain license and a certain respect from the fans to take some chances.”

Really, in television big risks are what produces the biggest rewards, and do think that there have been some very big risks taken on the series so far. Take, for example, seeing Slade Wilson kill Moira in season 2 or setting season 5 around a villain in Prometheus who may as well have been an original character given how different that he was from any DC Comics counterpart. The show doesn’t have to worry about helping out any other shows or meeting any fan demands — it really should just focus on delivering the best, most original product possible.
