The news emerged from an interview with Kathy Waugh, who originally developed the show from the books by Marc Brown, revealed the news on the Finding DW podcast with Jason Szwimer.

Arthur is no longer in production. We had our wrap party two years ago,” she shared. “I think [PBS] made a mistake, and I think Arthur should come back and I’m know I’m not alone in thinking they made a mistake.”

Kathy added, “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, we finished the last episode, season 25 two years ago.”

Arthur has the honor of being the longest running children’s animated series in the history of American television, and centered on the title character, a young aardvark and the lessons he learns from friends and family, while growing up in the fictional Elwood City.

The final season is set to debut in the winter of 2022.
