ARROW is heading into its final season sans a season 1 cast member: Emily Bett Rickards announced on Instagram she won’t be a part of the show’s upcoming eighth season.

“Felicity and I are a very tight two,” she wrote alongside a collage of photos of her portraying the character. “But after one through seven we will be saying goodbye to you.”

“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,” executive producers Greg Berlanti and Beth Schwartz said in a statement. “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. ”

Rickards debuted on The CW series in the third episode, and recurred in its first season. She then went on to be promoted to series regular. Felicity made appearances in other ARROWVERSE shows THE FLASH, SUPERGIRL, and LEGENDS OF TOMORROW.

Here is Rickards’ farewell post…

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 💕 Love, Felicity and Me
