Apple TV+ inked a deal last month with WildBrain, Peanuts Worldwide and Lee Mendelson Film Productions to become the home for all things Peanuts, including new original series and specials. New animated Peanuts originals coming to Apple TV+ include a second season of the Daytime Emmy-nominated Snoopy in Space, and new specials marking Mother’s Day, Earth Day, New Year’s Eve and going back to school, all produced by WildBrain’s animation studio.
