The long-running children’s show Arthur is set to end after its 25th season in 2022, the show’s executive producer has confirmed. The animated show, which follows a lovable 8-year-old aardvark named Arthur as he learns lessons about compassion and tolerance, was a favorite of kids and parents alike. “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,” executive producer Carol Greenwald said in a statement. Reruns will still be available on PBS Kids.
