Arthur: The end of an era

The news of this cancellation is not that old. It was first revealed by Kathy Waugh when she said that the show was no longer in production. If you do not know, she is the person who originally developed the show from scratch from the books by Marc Brown.

“Arthur should come back and I’m know I’m not alone in thinking they made a mistake. 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.” She added to an interview that she gave. Further, she had revealed that the crew and her had their wrap party two years ago.

So, what do you think? Is this a mistake? Let us know in the comments.
