Not just this, Amell also stated that the series has ended with the seventh season. Also, Arrow Season 8 will be entirely different. As he said, “I think that the show, as people have understood it and its structure I think it ended in Season 7 finale. This year is fundamentally different. The episodes are events, and, to me, the show, as we constructed it, ended when Emily left.”
Emily Bett Richards (Felicity) left the show at the end of the seventh season.
Arrow Season 8: Will Take Place On Earth-1
Executive Producer Beth Schwartz also unraveled a piece of big news for the fans of Arrow at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.

That is the place from where one can travel to any other alternate Earth.
Arrow Season 8: Will Introduce John Diggle Jr.
The CW also announced the addition of Russian Doll star Charlie Barnett at this year’s Television Critics Association summer press tour.
