“Arthur” first aired on PBS KIDS in 1996.
The beloved PBS show “Arthur” ends after its 25th season.
Rumors of the show’s cancellation surfaced earlier this month after “Arthur” writer Kathy Waugh appeared in an episode of the podcast “Finding DW” Waugh said the show was no longer in production and the final episode ended two years earlier .
On Wednesday, the show’s executive producer Carol Greenwald confirmed that the show would end in 2022.
“‘Arthur’ is the longest-running animated series for children in history and is known for teaching kindness, empathy and inclusion through many groundbreaking moments to generations of viewers,” Greenwald said in a statement.
She said the show will continue to be available on PBS Kids.
“Arthur”, first aired in 1996, follows an eight-year-old earthworm as he navigates life with his family – including his foreign sister DW – friends and school. It is based on the books of Marc Brown. The show has featured characters from different cultures, classes and backgrounds and showcased boundaries that push moments like a same-sex wedding. The series has won four Emmys.
Greenwald did not address why the show was canceled, but said producer GBH and PBS Kids “continued to work together on additional Arthur content and shared the lessons learned from Arthur and his friends in new ways.”
