Holidays are saved! Charlie Brown specials to air on PBS

Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, Christmas specials are coming back to traditional TV following outcry over their removal

In a welcome reversal, Apple TV+ has struck a deal with PBS to air "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" and "A Charlie Brown Christmas". But PBS announced that A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving and A Charlie Brown Christmas will run ad-free on PBS and PBS Kids in addition to streaming on Apple TV+, as part of an agreement between Apple and PBS.

So, mark your calendars: "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" and "A Charlie Brown Christmas" will air ad-free on PBS and PBS Kids on November 22 and December 13, respectively, at 7:30 p.m. local time/6:30 p.m. CT, the outlet said.

This image shows key art for the animated classic "A Charlie Brown Christmas" holiday special. AppleTV+ had previously snatched up the rights to the Charlie Brown specials, and actually didn't show "It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" on any TV network. According to Vulture, this will be the first year since the first special debuted in 1965 that the Peanuts specials wouldn't air on broadcast TV.

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving will be airing on November 22 at 7:30 pm EST.
