Arrow Stars Say Final Day of Filming 'Snuck Up' on Them, Share Favorite Memories (Exclusive)
The CW
Canceled or Renewed: The Fate of Every TV Show In 2019 (So Far)

"I can't wait for everyone to see the final episodes that haven't aired yet," teases Ben Lewis.

That's a wrap on "Arrow."

The cast of the superhero show just finished filming the final season of the CW series, with star Stephen Amell confirming he shot his last scene as Oliver Queen early Thursday morning. And these last moments in costume crept up on the cast much quicker than expected.

TooFab caught up with stars Rick Gonzalez (AKA Wild Dog) and Ben Lewis (Oliver's son, Will) at the People's Choice Awards on Sunday night, where they talked about their final moments on set.

"Each day has been pretty, it sneaks up on you," Gonzalez said before he wrapped. "We've been numb to it, but each day has been like, remember, it's coming. I just finished a scene on Friday with Julianna Harkavy and we were in tears. Every scene hasn't been easy. I'm hoping we can ease things with some liquor."

Lewis echoed those feelings, also saying "it really snuck up" on him as well. That being said, he can't wait for fans to see everything they've been working on and how it all wraps up.

"It's a short season, which I think is great creatively. I think all the episodes are really vital and important," he explained. "They're so well written, we've been having so much fun playing them."

"But we started shooting in July and here we are in November and I have one scene left, I feel like where did the time go?" he added. "It's been a great season and I can't wait for everyone to see the final episodes that haven't aired yet."

The two also shared their favorite memories from the set -- watch the video above to find out.

With filming complete, the rest of the show's cast -- including Amell, David Ramsey, Katie Cassidy, Colton Haynes, Harkavy and more -- all posted wrap tributes on social media.

See some of their posts below. "Arrow" airs Wednesdays on The CW, with the series finale set for January 28, 2020.

Where would “Rene” be with out this team? Nowhere. Where would “Rene” be if there was no “Oliver”? Nowhere. Where would this show be without @stephenamell? Nowhere. Or at the very least cancelled wayyyy before season 8. I’ve said this to you before but a fact is a fact: you worked your butt off to make this show successful. That is a great representation of leadership. When I showed up in season 5 you still put in hard work to make this show strong. And you did it smoothly. You set a blueprint. Thank you for embracing me into this world. Congratulations. I remember I ran into @marcguggenheim in Los Angeles back in 2012 when the show aired. Congratulated him on the show, in the back of my mind I thought: “I definitely want to be on that show”. Fast forward to 2016 and I had the opportunity to audition for a small part (or so I thought at the time) on the show. I won’t forget the moment when our costume designer #MayaMani told me I was playing #WildDog 😩😳😎 I jumped for joy. Ran into @davidpaulramsey in Miami for @americanblackfilmfestival and he introduced himself to me and said he looked forward to working with me. Fast forward 3 years later and David is like a big brother to me. ❤️ Love you bro, you gracefully give to others. It’s beautiful to see. Thank you for being an anchor wherever you are. @julianaharkavy you showed up halfway through the season of 5. Immediately I inherited a sister who wanted to comfort all of us. Continue to be the “mom” we all need on set. ❤️So grateful to this cast and crew for embracing me half way through this journey. @echokells your so darn funny and talented I hope we can continue to work together! (stay tuned guys!) @katiecassidy you always displayed an undeniable spark with #TheBlackCanary and #TheBlackSiren. And whenever we’re at work you were always sweet and kind. @emilybett it’s nearly impossible to not laugh with you. I was always in awe of your ability to bring #Felicity to life with such fluidity. Thank you for always being a caring actor and peer. (Cont‘d)

I can’t believe the final day of Arrow is upon us. When I began this job I was poised and ready, excited to jump in and take on a legacy of being Olicity’s kid - to create such a rich conflicted character based on a beloved relationship built by two brilliant actors for whom I have so much respect. What I found was a family who welcomed me in - cast, crew, and creatives who joined and supported my enthusiasm in bringing Mia Smoak-Queen to life. I have nothing but love and gratitude to the entire Arrow family and the fandom for making this such a wonderful chapter of my career and of my life. No matter what the future holds, long live Star City. #ARROW #TheFinalBow #Olicity #MiaSmoak #Olicitybaby #ArrowFinale @stephenamell @emilybett @cw_arrow @thecw @arrowprodoffice @arrowwriters

Today is the last day of filming for #Arrow. I still remember what I was wearing for my audition, what the room was like, my mind being blown that I was cast, my first flight to Vancouver, walking into my first hotel room, the first fitting, meeting @StephenAmell before that meeting and seeing the amount of sushi he was gonna down post-training session, our first day of shooting spent laying on a wet pallet and not wanting it to end. Cut to 2019 and the show has made 170 episodes of television, laid the groundwork for a whole universe of shows not to mention ushered in a new era of television superheroes. I’m proud to have been a part of it over the last 8 seasons but here’s what’s even more wonderful; I have always said that as I move from job to job I’m lucky if I get to keep ONE good friend after I move on. With Arrow I’ve kept more than I thought possible. People who whether I see them once a year or talk to them once a week we pick up right where we left off. That’s my greatest takeaway from my time on Arrow these last 8 seasons. None of that would have been possible without our creators, our writers & directors, the CW, this cast, this crew as lastly YOU the fans. You’re the biggest reason this show became what it is. Thanks for all the memories and for all the fun and to all of my #Arrow family, especially @StephenAmell, Congratulations on a most amazing run.
