New streaming Peanuts coming

Animated Peanuts

If you think there’s a lot of TV available now (and there is), there’s about to be a lot more, as several major streaming new streaming services are in the works. It’s been known for a while now that Apple was working on one, gathering up projects, aiming to unleash this in the second half of next year. When Apple does something, it does not tend to be done in a small way.

Well, they’ve grabbed Peanuts, for “series, specials, and shorts.” This deal with Peanuts Worldwide is for new content (at least the announced aspects of it), and they get in there the educational material that was being developed with NASA.

So: substantial new Peanuts content, but you’ll have to pay for it.

More on this as it develops.
