The CW recently renewed Arrow for a seventh season, and there are big changes on the way. Roy Harper will return as a series regular, while the season six finale is sad to be a real gamechanger. Now, there’s a shakeup behind-the-scenes.
It has been announced (via Entertainment Weekly) that Arrow has upgraded Beth Schwartz, a longtime member of the writing room, to the role of showrunner for season seven. Wendy Mericle will exit the series after this season, while Marc Guggenheim will be an executive consultant. Guggenheim will also do the same for Legends of Tomorrow, leaving Phil Klemmer as the only showrunner of that show.
Greg Berlanti had this to say about Schwartz’ promotion. “We are all so incredibly thrilled to announce Beth Schwartz as the new showrunner of Arrow. She has been a source of some of the show’s most exciting and memorable moments from the beginning. Beth is a true leader and a captivating storyteller, and we all can’t wait for the audience to see what she and her team dream up as they take Arrow into its next big chapter.”
Definitely an interesting change behind the scenes, but hopefully, it’ll all work out for the best. Stay tuned for more as we have it.
