The CW's recent comic book adaptation, Arrow, has flown over the next TV hurdle and is to receive a full 22-episode season...

The story of a millionaire playboy who returns home from years stranded on a remote island to emerge a vigilante superhero, The CW's Arrow comes adapted from DC's Green Arrow comic series.

Currently two episodes in to its first season, Arrow has performed well enough in its early stages to warrant a full season order, meaning fans are guaranteed at least twenty further episodes of Oliver Queen being handy with a bow. 

Arrow's premiere attracted over four million US viewers, a number that didn't drop too significantly for its second outing, which brought The CW three and a half million. Torchwood and Doctor Who fans should look out for John Barrowman's appearance in episode five.
