It was confirmed by Apple TV+ earlier this year that it will deliver the audiences a new Peanuts special during the holidays – which will be centered around New Year’s Eve, with the forthcoming For Auld Lang Syne special getting its first trailer. The new special will look forward to celebrating all the beloved members if the Peanuts cast, it also marks the first occasion when a TV special is based on characters that do not feature characters “Charlie Brown” or “Snoopy” in the title. Fortunately, we will get to see those characters, among a lot more, as everyone gets into the spirit of New Year when For Auld Lang Syne releases on 10th December on Apple TV+.
Watch the trailer below:
Here’s the press release:
“In the special, after the Peanuts gang experience a disappointing Christmas because Grandma can’t visit, Lucy resolves to throw herself the best New Year’s Eve party ever, while Charlie Brown struggles to accomplish just one of his resolutions before the clock strikes twelve.
The official description reads:
“For Auld Lang Syne is based on the Peanuts comic strip by Charles M. Schulz and is produced by WildBrain Studios. The new special is from a story by Alex Galatis and Scott Montgomery and written by Galatis, Montogomery, and Clay Kaytis who also directed. Craig Schulz, Bryan Schulz, Cornelius Uliano serve as executive producers alongside Paige Braddock for Charles M. Schulz Creative Associates, and Josh Scherba, Stephanie Betts, Amir Nasrabadi, and Anne Loi for WildBrain Studios. Also from WildBrain Studios are producer James Brown, pre-production producer Timothy Jason Smith, and associate producer Cassie Price.”
For years, Peanuts specials have developed this tradition to get families in the mood for holidays. Whether it’s Charlie Brown, A Charlie Brown Christmas, It’s The Great Pumpkin, or A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving. All die-hard Peanuts fans know that holidays aren’t complete with the viewing of these classic adventures.
Fans were really excited when Apple TV+ got the rights to make new projects with these characters. Although we don’t know what the future holds for them, it was a surprise to many that Apple TV+ will be the home of these classics. Apple TV+, luckily, has a partnership with PBS to continue network broadcasting of every special, with fans able to check for local listings for the broadcast of A Charlie Brown Christmas.
