In 2018, Peanuts Worldwide and NASA signed the Space Act Agreement wherein the former would produce new material to engage young audience in space exploration. In honour of the Apollo 11 anniversary, a short documentary feature, called ‘Peanuts in Space: Secrets of Apollo 11’ was released, which questioned the nature of Snoopy’s contribution in space exploration. The mystery it addresses is: was Snoopy a top-secret astronaut? This documentary is narrated by Jeff Goldblum (because who else!) and Ron Howard.
‘Snoopy in Space’, the Apple TV+ series, follows the beagle’s adventures as an astronaut, while Charlie Brown and his friends help him out. The series is produced by DHX Media. And well, the show opened to extremely good reviews from fans. Now the next question is: will there be a Snoopy in Space season 2? Let’s find out.
Snoopy in Space Season 2 Release Date: When Will It Premiere?
‘Snoopy in Space’ Season 1 released on November 1, 2019, on Apple TV+. It consisted of 12 episodes.
Charles Schulz’s characters have been around for a very long time and indulged in all sorts of situations to address the social and cultural issues and exploring intellectual and philosophical grounds. It has previously won several Emmys, and ‘Snoopy in Space’ continues to tread such grounds. Hence, it is no surprise that it was widely appreciated by fans and critics alike.
Addressing the question of the continuation of series, we fully expect ‘Snoopy in Space’ to return for the second season. Once Snoopy gets himself there, there is no doubt that he wouldn’t want to explore its frontiers, to go where no dog has been before. Moon, Mars, Jupiter, there is no end to the places where his curiosity and fantasies will take him, which means that the series has no shortage of content.
As of now, no official announcement has been made for the renewal of the series. Still, we can expect Snoopy in Space season 2 to premiere sometime in November 2020. As we receive more information on the matter, we will update this section.
Snoopy in Space Season 2 Cast: Who Can Be In It?
Snoopy is voiced by Terry McGurrin. He is Charlie Brown’s dog, and is much more confident than him. He is also very intelligent and lives in the world of fantasies. Ethan Pugiotto voices Charlie Brown, Snoopy’s human, who is a shy boy, unable to form an impression on others because of not being able to do simple tasks like flying a kite or playing football. Still, time and again, Charlie Brown rises to the occasion and acts as a much-needed leader.
The series also brings back all of the main characters of the Peanuts world. Rob Tinkler voices Woodstock, a small yellow bird who is Snoopy’s best friend. Christian Dal Dosso plays Franklin, a young African-American boy who is very smart and also plays baseball.
Isabella Leo voices Lucy, an authoritarian who sometimes teases Charlie Brown. Holly Gorski lends her voice to Marcie, a book nerd who secretly likes Charlie. Hattie Kragten voices the character of Sally, Charlie’s younger sister. Isis Moore serves as the voice of Peppermint Patty, Marcie’s best friend. Wyatt White is the voice of Linus, Lucy’s brother and Charlie’s best friend who has a special connection with Sally; and Nicole Byer voices C.A.R.A, a new addition to the team.
Season 2, as and when it happens, is expected to see all the lead voice actors returning to reprise their original characters.
Snoopy in Space Season 2 Plot: What Can It Be About?
Snoopy has always been a dog who surpassed the intelligence of his species. As exceptional as he is, his dreams go even further. While he finds one thing or another to make his other fantasies come true, which leads him and Charlie Brown on exciting misadventures, there is one wish that hasn’t been fulfilled yet.
Snoopy wants to be an astronaut. He dreams about floating into space and creating history, perhaps somewhat inspired by Laika, the first dog in space. After trying to get Woodstock and his flock of little yellow birds to launch him into space and failing at it, he finally sends an application to NASA. But the response of the space agency isn’t so encouraging. His application is rejected because he doesn’t fit the criteria, which breaks his heart. Seeing him all sad and broken about the dream of his life, Charlie Brown decides to take the charge of getting his dog into space.
Along with his friends, he finds a way to accomplish this mission. Woodstock, too, helps in every way possible. Because of his determination, Snoopy is able to embark on various missions in the NASA and even manages to go to the moon. Then he plans his next trip to Mars. But will he able to make it? We hope to get our answers in season 2!
