Apple TV+ welcomes back “Stillwater,” “Harriet the Spy” and the latest “Charlie Brown” special, plus launches new live-action and animated kids’ shows.

After its teaser trailer for 2023 shows, and also specifically the launch of the preschool series “Shape Island”, Apple has now announced that almost a dozen children’s shows are coming to the streaming service.

Brand new to Apple TV+ is “Jane,” a 10-part live action series “inspired by the work of Dr. Jane Goodall,” and produced by “Ghostwriter” Emmy winner JJ Johnson. It premieres on April 14, 2023.

Before that, “Eva the Owlet” is a new kids and family animation streaming from March 31, 2023 based on “Owl Diaries” by Rebecca Elliott.
