The official answer is probably going to be that it’s now best to correct mistakes and update the title page.

No permission is ever needed to submit data to IMDb.
All that is required is that it meets Title eligibility . If you notice any incorrect data you may submit these changes this way. Correcting existing data .

Wait, can someone just explain this part to me:

“If you are requesting multiple episode or whole season deletions, please be as explicit as possible by providing links to all episodes.“
