Apple’s got one more surprise to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing: a preview of its upcoming Peanuts TV show.

The first teaser for the Snoopy in Space series starts with the lovable pooch floating through the void of space before slamming back onto his red dog house in Charlie Brown’s backyard.

Snoopy in Space follows Snoopy as his dreams of being an astronaut become a reality when he and Woodstock tag along with the Peanuts gang on a field trip to NASA and are chosen for an elite mission into space,” reads Apple’s first official description of the show.

Charlie Brown and the gang will assist Snoopy and Woodstock from Mission Control as the two characters go through astronaut training and space travel. The show will be available exclusively on Apple TV+ when the streaming service launches this fall.

The show is part of Apple’s deal with DHX Media, signed last December, that will bring original Peanuts TV shows based on Charles M. Schulz’s cartoon characters to Apple’s service.

Apple released the faux documentary Peanuts in Space: Secrets of Apollo 10 in May on the Apple TV app, so we’ve already gotten a little taste of what the partnership can cook up.
