The two hundredth issue of Elwood and forty-fourth issue of Elwood High was released on January 13, 2019.

In this issue, Arthur and Sue Ellen are preparing for the Diplomats' Ball when Francine makes things awkward.




On May 24, 2017, co-writer Bennett Joel claimed on Twitter that Issue 200 would be the series finale.[1] However, at Elwoodstock III on May 29, creator and illustrator Samuel Anderson stated:

"I'm shooting for [Issue 200], but there's no guarantees. I don't want to be limited by the number 200 in case the plots have to go longer or the plot's already wrapped up."
—Samuel Anderson at Elwoodstock III.[2]
On May 24, 2018, Joel declared that the "endgame isn't even in sight" after Issue 193.[3] In a later blog post, he said that Issue 200 "may or may not be the final" issue.[4] It was announced on December 18, 2018 that there were "less than 20 issues left" after Issue 196.[5]

On January 6, 2019, it was confirmed that Issue 200 would be released in 2019 and not be the series finale.[6] At Elwoodstock IV on January 10, 2019, Anderson was asked "With Issue 100, you did a tongue-in-cheek birthday special with Thora. Anything similar planned for Issue 200?" He responded, "Probably not."[7]
