Season 20 of Arthur premiered on PBS on October 10, 2016[1][2] with "Buster's Second Chance/Arthur and the Whole Truth" and concluded on June 1, 2017 with "The Hallway Minotaur/Ladonna's Like List". This is the first season in which only seven episodes were produced, the shortest season to date.

WGBH signed an agreement with Oasis Animation to animate both Season 20 and Season 21[3], instead of 9 Story Media Group. Production began on September 9, 2015.[3] All work was completed as of December 2016.[4] Together with Season 21, there will be a total of fourteen 30-minute episodes. There will also be two 1-hour specials that are not considered part of either season[3]: Arthur: D.W. and the Beastly Birthday (May 29, 2017)[5] and Arthur & the Haunted Treehouse (October 2017).[6][7]

Christian Distefano is the new voice of D.W.,[8] replacing Andrew Dayton. Distefano previously voiced James in Season 18. Jacob Ursomarzo replaces William Healy as Arthur. Jacob Ewaniuk and Jake Sim are replaced by Devan Cohen and Samuel Faraci as the Tibble Twins.
