As Charlie Brown says: “We’ve got another holiday to worry about.”

But Peanuts fans can rejoice this holiday season! The classic special A Charlie Brown Christmas is coming to PBS.

In 2020, Apple TV+ became the exclusive home for the beloved specials. Following that announcement, PBS and Apple partnered to return the beloved programs to traditional TV for a special ad-free broadcast so families can enjoy this timeless classic.

A Charlie Brown Christmas will air on Sunday, December 19 at 7:30 p.m. on VPM PBS. 

Feeling down about the commercialism of Christmas, Charlie Brown becomes the director of the gang's holiday play. Can he overcome his friends’ preference for dancing overacting, find the “perfect” tree, and discover the true meaning of Christmas?
