Frankly, we were sure that The CW is about to renew “Arrow” for a next season. Despite that fact that the series has lost many viewers, it has been praised by the loyal fans. Let’s take a look at the figures and facts in an attempt to figure out why The CW made this decision.
Currently, according to IMDB, “Arrow” has a score of 7.9 out of 10 based on over 317,700 user votes, approx. 500 reviews from viewers and 73 reviews from critics. At the same time, according to Rotten Tomatoes, “Arrow” holds an average score of 7.6 out of 10 and a 100% approval rating based on 9 reviews from critics, while the viewers have rated the current season of the superhero series at 3.9 out of 5 with a 72% approval rating based on over 200 user votes. However, according to the metrics presented by Metacritic, the fifth season of “Arrow” has a score of 6.2 out of 10 based on 60 generally favourable reviews from the viewers.
The premiere of the fifth season has drawn 1.871 million viewers (-29.93% compared to last season’s premiere) with a 0.70 demo rating (-35.78%) among adults (18-49). For comparison, “Arrow” Season 4 averaged a 0.94 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 2.49 million total viewers. But, in spite of such a serious decreasing of the viewing audience, we still consider that the television rating of “Arrow” are pretty strong.
“Arrow” Season 5 picks up 5 months after the events that took place in a previous season. Queen appears in the image of a Mayor of Star City. Now Queen has to combine his new day-to-day duties with being at the same time a superhero at night. Therefore, he was encouraged by the idea of Felicity to assemble a new team consisting of new vigilantes, given the fact that his former team has chosen its own way. Meanwhile, another criminal crew led by Tobias Church is going to take the city under control. The TV series is created by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg, who also serve as executive producers.
