Good news for fans of Stephen Amell’s abs The CW’s new show Arrow: The gritty, comic book-inspired drama just got picked up for a full 22-episode season!

Airing Wednesdays at 8 p.m., Arrow gave The CW its highest watched episode in three years when it premiered two weeks ago, TVLine reports. Its second episode held onto an impressive 1.3 demo rating and only dipped about 15 percent in viewership.

The drama, which follows the life of billionaire party boy turned vengeful vigilante Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), is The CW’s first official pickup of the fall season. The fates of fellow newbies Beauty and the Beast and Emily Owens, M.D. still remain up in the air, though the network has ordered three additional scripts from each.

Congrats to Arrow on the pickup! We’re abs-solutely stoked for Stephen and everyone else involved with the show.
