Looks like Snoopy and Woodstock's first season mission into space turned out better for Apple TV+ than anyone expected, with the streaming service announcing on Monday that it's teaming up with WildBrain, Peanuts Worldwide, and Lee Mendelson Film Productions, to become the home base for all things Peanuts. That's right, Apple TV+ will now be your one-stop-shopping when it comes to new original series and specials as well as iconic specials from the past.
That means fans of Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, and the rest of the gang can look forward to the second season of Snoopy in Space, as well as a line-up of new specials that finds the Peanuts gang honoring Mother's Day, Earth Day, New Year's Eve, and Back to School (all produced by WildBrain's animation studio). Those projects join previously-announced The Snoopy Show, a Peanuts 70th anniversary documentary film from Imagine Documentaries and WildBrain, and the award-winning Peanuts in Space: Secrets of Apollo 10. On the classics side, viewers can look forward to a number of beloved Peanuts specials, including A Charlie Brown Christmas, Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
