Apple to roll out new Snoopy, Peanuts cartoon series

Apple bringing back Charlie Brown, Snoopy as part of new Peanuts series

In what was apparently a highly competitive bidding war, Apple eventually made the deal with DHX Media, a Canadian kids programming that acquired a stake in Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the gang in 2017.

Since then, the gang of lovable, rag-tag characters has become embedded in pop culture, transcending generations with heart-warming specials such as A Charlie Brown Christmas and Snoopy, Come Home.

Likewise, DHX has also been tapped to produce all of the forthcoming Peanuts projects, including a series, specials, and shorts - as well as Apple-exclusive original short-form STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) content which will feature "astronaut Snoopy". Apple has remained tight-lipped about its plans on how it will distribute the original content and when it will launch, but it is expected to be a streaming platform to debut sometime in mid-2019.
