Whether you’re a fan of Halloween or not, some films and TV shows simply transcend the spooky holiday and become must-watch fall staples. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown is one of these, and it’s coming back to cable.

If you missed it last year, that’s likely because it moved exclusively to Apple TV+, and there were concerns it wouldn’t be broadcast on cable this year as a result. While you can watch the classic whenever you want on the streaming service, this year, the beloved “Blockhead” and his beagle will make a triumphant return to cable.

It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown will air Oct. 24 at 7:30 p.m. EDT, on PBS and PBS Kids. Be sure to check your local listings to find your channel and air time.

Pick up the DVD and you can watch whenever you want.

The Great Pumpkin isn’t the only Peanuts property coming to cable this year. You’ll be able to catch the whole gang for Thanksgiving and Christmas on PBS and PBS Kids, as well. A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving will air Nov. 21 at 7:30 p.m. EDT, and A Charlie Brown Christmas will air Dec. 19 at the same time.

So, if you were concerned about missing your holiday dose of the Peanuts Gang this year, you can now rest easy. Of course, if you want to watch them any time, you can subscribe to Apple TV+ or purchase the whole set on DVD.
