Disney+ has announced a season two greenlight for the Original series The Santa Clauses, following its first season finale. Disney icon Tim Allen will executive-produce and continue in the role of Santa/Scott Calvin and Elizabeth Mitchell will reprise her role as Mrs. Claus/Carol from Walt Disney Pictures’ celebrated franchise.
Season one, which premiered on November 16th, is currently streaming on Disney+.
“This franchise has had a lasting impact for so many families, truly becoming part of their annual holiday traditions,” said Ayo Davis, president, Disney Branded Television. “Bringing it back as a series has been a true gift, and I’m grateful to our producing partners at 20th Television and, of course, Tim Allen and team, that we have yet another reason to celebrate this holiday season.”
Allen first portrayed Santa/Scott Calvin in the 1994 movie The Santa Clause. Mitchell is introduced as Carol in the 2002 sequel The Santa Clause 2 when Allen’s character must find a Mrs Claus in order to continue being Santa.
In season one of The Santa Clauses Scott Calvin returns after being Santa Claus for nearly thirty years, and he’s as jolly as ever. But as Christmas declines in popularity, so does his Santa magic. Scott struggles to keep up with the demands of the job, as well as being there for his family. Upon discovering there is a way to retire from his post, Scott considers stepping down as Santa Claus and finding a worthy successor so that he can become a better father and husband.
The Disney Branded Television series is a production of 20th Television, a part of Disney Television Studios.
