3. Did Netflix delete Arrow?

No, every season of The CW’s hit season Arrow is now on Netflix and will remain for the years to come. Until, of course, when the contract is up, it will leave Netflix as other shows have. 


You know all there is to know about the Arrowverse shows, now, fans must understand that there might be some cross-overs, but we recommend you binge watch atleast a season of Arrow before you begin with Flash and the other series. This will help build a base, so you know what to expect from each hero and their capacities. All those who have read the comics and are finally watching the shows, remember that what you see is unmatchable!
