Executive producer Carol Greenwald said that PBS Kids will continue to provide replays.
Greenwald said in a statement: “Arthur is the longest-running children’s animation series in history and is known for imparting kindness, compassion and tolerance to generations of audiences through many groundbreaking moments.”
She continued: “I don’t know if this is a ratings issue or if it feels like it needs to be retired. To me, it feels evergreen, like it never ends, but it does end.”
Wo developed the show based on Mark Brown’s book. The show is the longest-lasting children’s animation series in the United States, and has won four daytime Emmys for its outstanding children’s animation program.
The show ends in season 25 and is scheduled to be broadcast in the winter of 2022. It was previously renewed for the four seasons in 2018 and premiered in October 1996.
