Here's some important news coming out of CW land.  Why don't I share the surprise announcement coming from the show's star?




Yes, long running DC Universe flagship "Arrow" is ending next season.  The show was recently renewed for its eighth season in January.  This is a cast and crew that are very close to "Supernatural." Both shows shoot at the same studios in Burnaby, BC and Jared, Jensen, and Stephen have quite brotherhood going at the Canadian Motion Picture Park and beyond.

If adding up the number of episodes, the show will end either on or very close to the annual Arrowverse crossover. Of course it sounds like the end of the show might not be the end of the Green Arrow partaking in the annual event. Stephen Amell had this to say on Facebook Live, “Something tells me even when I’m done, I won’t be gone. If you watch the Arrowverse, you should understand that… I think it’s been a good run. It’s no Supernatural, but it’s been a good run.” 

It may be no "Supernatural" but "Arrow" has done what SPN has failed to do, launch a series of spinoffs that have greatly expanded it's universe. "The Flash" and "Legends of Tomorrow" will be continuing and the new DC show previewed in this year's crossover, "Batwoman," is practically a shoe-in for pickup next season. Perhaps that will end up picking up "Arrow's" timeslot when it leaves?

Of course, fans on Twitter are already calling for Stephen to guest star on "Supernatural."

The world lost a true legend yesterday in the passing of Luke Perry.  There have been many wonderful tributes over the last day and after reading about his amazing legacy, I have some of my own memories to share.  

I know you’re probably thinking, what does Luke Perry’s loss has to do with “Supernatural”?  Well, there’s a couple of reasons.  First, “Riverdale” films in Vancouver and the CW actors up north have this sort of bond.  It’s hard to describe, but they’re actors living in a fishbowl in a foreign country while the entertainment world spins some 1300 miles away in Los Angeles.   It’s a private club where friendships are made.   They all know each other in some way and a loss on one show impacts them all.  In this case though, Luke was especially hard to forget.  He left an impression on all of them, with his humble personality and big heart as well as a serious commitment to his craft, all from a veteran that at one time was America’s biggest heartthrob.  Everyone up there is in shock right now and feeling a tremendous loss. 

Second, I have a special fondness for Luke Perry.  Sure, he carried the mantle of the true Gen X hottie in the 1990’s, driving young girls (and young guys too) wild with his bad boy TV persona and all around super nice guy demeanor outside of the zip code that made him famous.  He was a household name and always had a mention in the entertainment pages.  But that’s not why I’m fond of him.  I never even watched “Beverly Hills 90210.”  Teen soaps were never my thing.  I did love him in “The Simpsons,” when he got to be Krusty the Clown’s beleaguered sidekick, Sideshow Luke Perry.  The results were a bit disastrous and funny as hell.  It showed how great his sense of humor was.
