For Auld Lang Syne will be the first new Peanuts holiday special since 2002, and a trailer released Monday gives a preview. Lucy puts on a New Year’s Eve party but must deal with nothing going right.
The special, set to start streaming in December, looks like a turnaround for Lucy, whose arrogance, bossiness and cruelty generally gets her cast as the villain.
