Apple TV+ to Become Home of Both Iconic and Brand-New ‘Peanuts’ Specials
Charlie Brown and the gang have found a new home at Apple TV+.
Apple TV+ has renewed Snoopy in Space for Season 2 and, just in time for the holidays, is set to become the home of iconic and brand-new Peanuts specials celebrating Mother’s Day, Earth Day, New Year’s Eve, and the “Back to School” season, the Cupertino company announced Monday.
The first of which, the classic It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, which focuses on Halloween, premieres today for Apple TV+ subscribers. It will be free to watch for everyone using the Apple TV app between October 30 and November 1, 2020.
The other two classic specials aren’t being left out, though. A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving will be available to watch for Apple TV+ subscribers beginning November 18. It will then be free to watch through the Apple TV app from November 25 and November 27. Finally, A Charlie Brown Christmas will be available for subscribers to watch December 4, and then it’ll be free to watch from December 11 to December 13.
The new series and specials join the previously announced The Snoopy Show; a brand-new Peanuts 70th anniversary documentary film from Imagine Documentaries and WildBrain; and the Daytime Emmy Award-winning Peanuts in Space: Secrets of Apollo 10.
