‘Arthur’ to end at PBS Kids with Season 25 in 2022
Executive manufacturer Carol Greenwald stated reruns will continue to be readily available on PBS Children.
“Arthur is the longest-running kids animated series in history and is known for teaching kindness, empathy and inclusion through many groundbreaking moments to generations of viewers,” Greenwald stated in a declaration.
She continued: “I don’t know if it was a ratings issue or if it felt like it needed to be retired. To me, it felt evergreen, like it was never going to end, but it did end.”
Waugh established the program based upon the books by Marc Brown. The program is the longest-running kids’s animated series in the United States and has actually won 4 Daytime Emmys for exceptional kids’s animated program.
The program ends with Season 25, which is set to air in the winter season of 2022. It was formerly restored for 4 seasons in 2018. It premiered in October 1996.
