Tim Allen will reprise his role as Santa Claus in the Disney+ Original limited series The Santa Clause (working title).
The series, which Allen will also executive-produce, is scheduled to begin production in LA in March.
Allen first played the role of Santa Claus / Scott Calvin in the 1994 film The Santa Clause. He went on to play the role in two sequels, 2002’s The Santa Clause 2 and 2006’s The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause.
The Disney Branded Television series – a production of 20th Television – will see Scott Calvin is on the brink of his 65th birthday and realising that he can’t be Santa forever. With a lot of elves, children, and family to please, he sets out to find a suitable replacement Santa while preparing his family for a new adventure in a life south of the pole.
Jack Burditt (30 Rock, Modern Family, Frasier) serves as the executive producer and showrunner on the series, and Kevin Hench (Last Man Standing), Richard Baker and Rick Messina will also serve as executive producers.
