After last year's uproar over the Peanuts specials not airing on TV, Charlie Brown and the gang will be back on TV sets this fall. Apple TV+ became the home of the Peanuts gang last year, and with the partnership came the absence of favorite fall specials on public television. I felt like Linus waiting for The Great Pumpkin, only instead of a pumpkin patch, I was waiting in my own living room.

This year, the beloved Peanuts specials will still be available on Apple TV+, but they will be coming back to traditional TV as well, airing on PBS.

“A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” is coming back to TV sets across the nation at 6:30 p.m. CST on Sunday, Nov. 21 on PBS and PBS Kids.

"A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" originally aired on TV in 1973 and was the tenth prime-time animated television special based on the Peanuts characters. The special even won a Primetime Emmy Award for "Outstanding Individual Achievement in Children's Programming".
