The CW Network’s moody new ‘superhero’ series Arrow, based on the DC comics character Green Arrow, which has just started screening in the UK on Sky 1 following a successful US launch, has now received its ‘full season’ order from the network. The show’s star Stephen Arnell posted the news on his Twitter feed but shortly afterwards the CW Network issued an official press release confirming the news that the show’s fans were all a-quiver for; this is a real feather in the cap for the CW Network who should take a bow for their faith in their new series and… (All right, that’s enough stupid bow-and-arrow jokes, where’s the Press release?? - Ed) Spoilsport. Here it is… right on target… (sorry)…
