Emily Bett bid farewell to the Arrow series along with her character Felicity Smoak at the end of season seven of the series. There’s a whole season of Arrow yet to happen which makes many fans wonder if Felicity can return one last time before the end of Arrow. In a recent interview, Rickards revealed that her time on Arrow has passed. “I feel like Felicity has done her time,” Rickards said. “I don’t know if anybody is going to like what I’m saying, but I feel like Felicity has done her time. We knew this was coming for a while – for over a year – so the whole thing is exactly what we wanted to happen. I trust the writers, and that’s in their hands.”

Her exit was announced in March this year. She bid farewell with a poetic caption on Instagram.

“The time has come to talk of many memes. Of bows and arrows and superheroes and Olicity and Queens
And why TGA is so damn hot
And yes, canaries need more scenes… But wait just one minute
before we go and do all that
For this makes me out of breath
To have this not small chat

Felicity and I
are a very tight two
But after one through seven
we will be saying goodbye to you

I thank you all for the time we’ve shared
The elevators we have climbed
The monsters we have faced and scared
And The burgers we have dined
I will keep her in my heart for always
And I hope that you can too
Because she would not be alive if it weren’t for all of you


Felicity and Me”

Executive producers on Arrow, Beth Schwartz and Greg Berlanti both let out a statement the very same day. That statement read, “We’ve had the pleasure of working with Emily since season one and in those past seven years she has brought one of TV’s most beloved characters to life. And although we’re heartbroken to see both Emily and Felicity leave the show, we’re completely supportive of Emily and her future endeavors. She will always have a family at Arrow.”
