Arrow Season 8 Blu-ray Will Include Crisis on Infinite Earths
Now that Arrow has ended, the series’ diehard fans are probably wondering when they can add the eighth and final season to their Blu-ray library. Fortunately, Arrow co-creator Marc Guggenheim has that answer. Guggenheim recently confirmed on Twitter that fans can snag the last episodes on Blu-ray on April 28. He also revealed that all five episodes of The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover will be included in the collection. You can check out Guggenheim’s announcement below.
This is exciting: All five Crisis on Infinite Earths episodes will be available on a special limited edition bonus disc with the Arrow: The Eighth and Final Season and Arrow: The Complete Series Blu-ray releases. Get them on 4/28. pic.twitter.com/5NLHJNzk4l

This news is somewhat surprising, since Crisis also included episodes of Supergirl, The Flash, Batwoman, and Legends of Tomorrow. Normally, The CW packages the installments of their Arrowverse crossovers with their respective series. Such has been the case for Elseworlds, Crisis on Earth-X, and other events. However, Crisis on Infinite Earths was definitely Oliver Queen’s moment to shine. Because the crossover memorably featured the Oliver’s death, it makes sense to include these episodes.
Arrow closed out its eight-year run last week. The final episode didn’t generate impressive viewer numbers. Regardless, it was generally praised by critics as a fitting swan song for the Arrowverse’s flagship series.
