Arrow season 8 air date, cast, trailer, plot: When does the new series start?

The CW confirmed Arrow season eight earlier this month and details of its air date, cast, trailer and plot are starting to emerge. Stephen Amell will lead the Arrow series eight cast as Oliver Queen/Green Arrow and we know the details of this year’s Arrowverse crossover plot. Arrow season eight, which will air on Sky One in the UK does not have a trailer or air date yet, however.

When Arrow season 8 start?

Arrow season eight does not have an air date yet on The CW or Sky One.

However, every series of Arrow so far has begun between October 5 and October 15 in the US.

If Arrow follows this pattern and The CW continues to air the show on Mondays, then we can expect the new series to air on either October 7 or 14, 2019.

Arrow release dates in the UK have been more varied, but the series is expected in late October, a few weeks after the series starts in the US.


Who will star in Arrow season 8?

Unsurprisingly, Arrow cast lead Stephen Amell is confirmed to be back for season eight.

In a Facebook Live chat, the actor said in September 2018: “I’m more than happy to report that I reached an agreement with The WB and The CW to continue on in the role of Oliver Queen, and nothing makes me happier, because I love this job.”

Other Arrow cast members expected to be in season eight include John Diggle (played by David Ramsey), Felicity Smoak (Emily Bett Rickards) and Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy).

One cast members who will not be in the series, however, is Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), who left the show on Monday’s (February 11) episode.


What will happen in Arrow season 8?

Plot details for Arrow series eight have not been revealed and are not likely to emerge before season seven comes to an end.

However, we do know some details about this year’s Arrowverse crossover event, Crisis on Infinite Earths.

The plot of the Crisis on Infinite Earths comic book sees The Monitor (LaMonica Garrett) trying to stop five parallel Earths from being pulled into a limbo universe.

The Crisis on Infinite Earths comic, however, does not feature Green Arrow or Supergirl, so there will have to be some plot changes.


Is there a trailer for Arrow season 8?

There is currently no promo for the next series of Arrow.

Last year, the first Arrow trailer dropped at San Diego Comic-Con in July prior to the series release in October.

Comic-Con this year will run from July 18 to 21, so we are likely to get our first look at Arrow season eight then.

Arrow last year also released a second trailer just before the series release in October and season eight is expected to follow suit.

Arrow season 8 is coming soon to The CW and Sky One
