"I've been trying to find the words to simply say what the last seven years have meant to me, and I believe this photo sums it up!" Rickards wrote on Instagram alongside a group cast photo.

"It's a cuddle puddle. Everyone here is exhausted and smiling. Everyone here looks at home. The incredible mind of my friend @schwartzapproved will be taking Arrow into its 8th & final season sending it off with pride, power and love."

The Felicity Smoak actress continued by heaping praise on her co-workers and fans, adding: "Without this show I would have not met the inspiring people pictured here nor those I have gotten to work with and get to work with everyday. People who have become my family.

"I'm excited to see what is in store for the story we have been telling. I'm excited and nervous. A combination of emotions Felicity Smoak vibrates at frequently. Needless to say without the last seven years I wouldn't have met her... Thank you to all of you for your massive support, passion and accompanying us on this journey.

"It's because of you we found each other."

Arrow airs Monday nights on The CW in the US, and Sky One in the UK.
