While this really isn’t a surprise considering how successful the second season has been, the CW has announced today that “Arrow” has officially been renewed for a third season. Here is what CW president Mark Pedowitz had to say about the renewal of “Arrow” and other CW shows:
“This season we’ve had great success with our new hit series The Originals paired with Supernatural, giving us our best Tuesday nights in years. The Vampire Diaries is No. 2 in its time period in the young adult demos, and with Arrow continuing to gain among young men, and Reign growing its time period, we now have strong nights on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. I’m very pleased to announce early pickups for all five series, and let our fans know they’ll have more great drama to look forward to next season.”
While we’re still anxiously waiting to see how season 2 will wrap up later this year, it is nice to know that “Arrow” will officially be back for a third season.
