NEW YORK (CNN) — It's good news, Charlie Brown: You're coming back to broadcast TV.

PBS, PBS Kids and Apple announced Wednesday that Snoopy and the gang will be coming to television for the holidays, after all.

Though Apple TV+ has the rights to Peanuts content, a new deal with PBS will enable the broadcaster to air "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" and "A Charlie Brown Christmas" this year.

The beloved specials will air ad free on Nov. 22 and Dec. 13, respectively, a release said.

This comes in addition to the previously announced plans for the specials to stream on Apple TV+. "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving" will be available starting Nov. 18 and free to watch from Nov. 25-27.

A similar approach is being taken with "A Charlie Brown Christmas," which will be available Dec. 4 and stream for free from Dec. 11-13.
