Summary and storyline
Arrow is a US superhero TV series based on a DC comic character, a vigilante armed with a bow. The show is produced for the CW network by Bonanza Productions, Derlanti Productions, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television. It premiered on October 10, 2012, and the current season 5 aired on October 5, 2016.
Action, mystery and drama accompany Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), a rich playboy who turned into an incognito crime-fighter following five years on a mysterious island after a shipwreck. The first season depicts the main character`s return to Starling City and his integration into his previous life as well as the establishment of his new range of interests – which includes killing criminals who are plotting dark things. There are also flashbacks to help us understand the transformation that took place during his isolation on the island. Over the next seasons of the Arrow Oliver gives a vow to fight crime without killing the perpetrators, attempts to reunite his family, finds a follower, Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) and continues his courageous and complicated battle with evil.
Positive reception, ratings dynamics and chances of renewal
The Arrow enjoyed favorable reviews from the critics, the first season being the most successful in winning their approval. The viewership ratings were a hit for the CW network in its early seasons in the US, as it turned out to be the most-watched series in three years. The broadcasts in the UK, Canada and Australia have also sparked considerable interest. Season four averaged 2.9 million viewers, but season five premiered with a significant decline at 1.87 million viewers. Whether this will make the The CW reconsider its prospects for the future of the series is still unclear, since despite the decrease in the ratings the numbers are still high. There has been no official statement from the network, but the fans of the show are hoping for its renewal.
