After five consecutive years in “Arrow,” John Barrowman has decided to part his ways. The actor took it to Twitter yesterday to share his experience about the series. He says that “Arrow” is one of his best works, but it’s time to say goodbye to the show. It seems that John is busy in the musical crossover of “Supergirl,” and “The Flash,” and cannot give proper time to the production of TV series.

‘Arrow’ – a popular television series

“Arrow” is an American crime show created and co-produced by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, and Marc Guggenheim.

The story is inspired by a novel of the same name by George Papp and Mort Weisinger. The first season of “Arrow” received positive reviews from television critics and audiences.

The series has more than 30 million views on YouTube and DailyMotion. Just like the first and second season, the new episodes of “Arrow” will be available on Blu-ray and DVD formats. The story revolves around a billionaire playboy, Olive, who spends several years of his life on the mysterious island of Lian Yu.

Upon his return to the native city, he joins hands with his mother, Moira, his sister, Thea, and his childhood friend, Tommy, for a secret mission.

Stephen Amell, Katie Cassidy, Colin Donnell, David Ramsey, Willa Holland, Susanna Thompson, Paul Blackthorne, Emily Bett Rickards, and Colton Haynes have played the leading characters in this series.

Production and technical aspects

In January 2012, The CW announced its plans about the new seasons of “Arrow,” with Andrew Kreisberg, Marc Guggenheim and Greg Berlanti serving as executive producers.

Most of the scenes have been shot in Vancouver, Germany, Baltimore, Maryland, Japan, and Spain. The costumes have been designed by Colleen Atwood, while Maya Mani has put together fifty mask options for production.

Blake Neely is recruited to compose the score for “Arrow.” Its first season received favorable comments from television critics and audiences.

On Metacritic, it scored 67 out of 100 based on 26 reviews, making it one of the highest rated CW shows in ten years. On Rotten Tomatoes, it has an approved rating of 78% based on 46 critics.

Mary McNamara from Los Angeles Times called it an exciting series with the sensitive subject. Brian Lowry from Variety stated that “Arrow” is an entertaining show with some standout episodes. Jeff Jensen from Entertainment Weekly gave it a rating of A, saying that “Arrow” is a fantastic series with powerful dialogues and great star cast. Despite a substantial critical acclaim, the series is criticized for its preoccupation with romance.
