In December 2018, DHX Media announced that it would be producing new Peanuts material for Apple's then unnamed streaming service, starting with the animated Snoopy in Space. Months prior, Peanuts Worldwide announced a partnership with NASA to promote STEM to students through new content.
The Snoopy character had a history with the space agency dating back to the Apollo 10 mission. In the buildup to the show's release, Apple TV began streaming a documentary by Morgan Neville titled Peanuts in Space: Secrets of Apollo 10. Starring Ron Howard and Jeff Goldblum, the short was released in May 2019. Through the NASA partnership, the series uses live-action footage from the NASA archives.
Snoopy in Space debuted alongside the launch of Apple TV+ on November 1, 2019. DHX released the show's soundtrack to stream on Apple Music the same day.
The show was the last DHX show to be produced under the DHX Media name, before the studio would change its name to WildBrain to build upon its multi-channel network of the same name, which was subsequently renamed to "WildBrain Spark".
In October 2020, it was announced that a second season is in production.
A teaser for the series was released on July 17, 2019. The full trailer was released on September 27, 2019.
As part of the general NASA partnership with Peanuts Worldwide, McDonald's Happy Meals featured space-themed Snoopy toys and books over the summer of 2019. An astronaut Snoopy character balloon also flew in the 2019 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. Space Foundation began hosting STEM lessons prior to the show's release. Apple Store locations launched Snoopy in Space-themed events alongside the series' debut.
