By

Emily Bett Rickards dropped a bombshell on viewers in a recent Instagram post where the actress, who plays leading lady Felicity Smoak on Arrow, revealed she would not be returning for the program's final season.

Executive Producers for the show, Greg Berlanti and Beth Schwartz, released an official statement on Emily's departure:

"We’ve had the pleasure of working with Emily since Season 1 and in those past seven years she has brought one of TV’s most beloved characters to life," the statement read. "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."

Touching stuff.
