Callanan said “I think the most important thing to note is that Arthur isn’t going away. Arthur will continue to air on PBS KIDS for years.”

But don't worry Arthur fans, there is still plenty to look forward to! The Arthur Finale Season will officially begin on August 7th, when the Arthur exhibition at the Fenimore Art Museum opens.

On January 11, 2022, the final Arthur book titled Believe in Yourself: What We Learned From Arthur will be released! This is a "big book" and took a while to make said author Marc Brown in his Democracy for Dinosaurs virtual book release.
