Showrunner Beth Schwartz told The Hollywood Reporter that while the character’s demise is permanent, it’s not the last time the actor will appear on the series that launched The CW’s Arrow-verse.
After eight seasons and multiple resurrections, Oliver Queen has officially died on Arrow. As expected, the superhero that launched an entire universe sacrificed himself for the sake of all humanity. After eight seasons of fighting for the greater good, Stephen Amell’s titular character made the ultimate sacrifice.
While Arrow-verse architects Marc Guggenheim and Greg Berlanti had long hinted at Oliver’s final fate in the Crisis on Infinite Earths mega-crossover event, it is nonetheless surprising for the character to take his final bow two episodes before the flagship drama’s series finale.
