The Outhouse has announced that Arrow Annotations, the popular Arrow column written by ThanosCopter, would be renewed for a third season. The news came about an hour following CW's announcement that Arrow, the popular series which Arrow Annotations covers, would be renewed, along with four other series including Supernatural.
"Arrow Annotations is one of our consistent performers," said Christian Hoffer, editor in chief of the Outhouse. "And we're happy to bring it back next fall for another round of insightful explanations and commentary about Arrow. It's easily the best Easter Egg column about Arrow on the Internet." Arrow Annotations typically receives between 5,000 and a billion hits a week, and is only beat in hits by articles linked to by HasDCDoneSomethingStupidToday.com, or satirical articles that have gone viral. Arrow Annotations has been viewed by just under a billion unique visitors this year (give or take).
Reaction to the announcement has been generally positive. "I'm pumped that I get to spend twenty-three more Wednesdays staying up til 1 AM writing the column," said ThanosCopter, writer of the column. "I just hope that they continue to jam the show full of easter eggs next season."
"I look forward to doing a shitty job trying to imitate Arrow Annotations," said Gus Sterlingham, a writer for ComicBooks.net. "Since I've read exactly one run of Green Arrow comic books and do absolutely no research about the episode afterwards, it won't be hard for Arrow Annotations to continue to embarass me and my content farm of a site."
There's been no word on whether the Outhouse will renew SHIELD Dossiers, ThanosCopter's other weekly column, nor have they announced whether they'd be moving forward with a planned Flash Facts column about the Flash spinoff series. It's believed the website is waiting to see whether either show is picked up for next season before making a decision.
Arrow Annotations appears on the Outhouse every Thursday after a new Arrow episode has aired and can be viewed on competing websites shortly thereafter.
