With a new school year looming, it’s time to celebrate educators. Apple TV+ did just that Friday when it dropped a trailer for Lucy’s School, an all-new Peanuts special that debuts on the streaming service August 12.

For those who grew up with Peanuts, it’s comforting that the classic series based on classic Charles M. Schulz comics lives on. Lucy’s School adds to the growing list of seasonal features following Charlie Brown, Lucy, Snoopy and the rest of the gang.

New Apple TV+ trailer for Peanuts special Lucy’s School celebrates educators

In the new special, the Peanuts gang is anxious about returning to school in the fall. “I feel a stomach ache coming on,” Charlie Brown mutters, sinking slowly into a swimming pool full of kids.

All that angst inspires Lucy to start her own school instead. How hard can it be?

And naturally, the trailer shows it’s tough being a teacher. Lucy gains an appreciation for the hard work teachers face every day.

Apple TV+ describes the special as a love letter to teachers as well as an appreciation of the impact a teacher can have on a child.

This special joins other Peanuts seasonal features on Apple TV+, including To Mom (And Dad), With Love and For Auld Lang Syne.

Both Lucy’s School and season two of The Snoopy Show premiere August 12 on Apple TV+.

Apple TV+ is available by subscription for $4.99 per month with a seven-day free trial or via any tier of the Apple One subscription bundle.
