December 18, 2018

Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang will soon head to Apple after the computer giant’s streaming service secured the rights to Charles M. Schulz’ beloved characters.

As part of the deal, reported by Variety, Apple will create new series, specials and shorts featuring the Peanuts characters. DHX Media, which purchased a stake in the Peanuts franchise in 2017, will produce the new content.

The agreement also includes a series of original short-form STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) videos that will feature Snoopy as an astronaut as part of a partnership between Peanuts Worldwide and NASA.
