Apple TV+ launches in December 2021


December has come to Apple TV+ rather timidly: with the streaming platform gearing up for 2022, it’s time to wrap up and say goodbye to your favorite series; on the other hand, Apple’s service makes room for Christmas specials for you to watch together with your family on your sofa at home.

Among the main highlights, there is the continuity of Mariah Carey’s Magical Christmas, which arrived in the catalog in 2020. This time, the singer brings the guest appearances of Khalid and Kirk Franklin for another breathtaking presentation, ideal to leave running during the Christmas dinner.

Still in the festive spirit, Apple TV+ makes room for two Peanuts specials: Happy New Year, Lucy!, produced exclusively for the service, and the history It’s Christmas Again Charlie Brown: a collection of animated shorts featuring the Charlie Brown gang, all set at Christmas, straight from the 1990s for you.

Original series like Acapulco, Dr. Brain, Dickinson, Invasion and others also say goodbye with final episodes.

Check out the Apple TV+ highlights below and the full list of releases at the end of the story. Enjoy!

Let’s Run with Otis (12/3)
