Earlier this year, Disney announced it was bringing back Tim Allen for a brand new series for Disney+ called, “The Santa Clauses”.
In the Disney+ series, Scott Calvin is on the brink of his 65th birthday and realizing that he can’t be Santa forever. He’s starting to lose a step in his Santa duties, and more importantly, he’s got a family who could benefit from a life in the normal world, especially his two kids who have grown up at the Pole. With a lot of elves, children, and family to please, Scott sets out to find a suitable replacement Santa while preparing his family for a new adventure in a life south of the pole.
The series will also be starring Elizabeth Allen-Dick, Devin Bright, Austin Kane, Matilda Lawler, Rupali Redd and Kal Penn.
It’s been revealed by Deadline that David Krumholtz will also be returning as Bernard the Elf, who has appeared in the original film and the first sequel.
The actor took to social media to give us a sneak peek at him in the series:
Couldn’t be more proud to add another chapter to my “The Santa Clause” career this fall in “THE SANTA CLAUSES” on @disneyplus . I think you’re going to love it! I loved every minute of revisiting this character, including this moment, when the hair team pinned my wig on for the first time. Tune in!
Award-winning Jack Burditt (“30 Rock,” “Modern Family,” “Frasier,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”) is the executive producer and showrunner and Kevin Hench (“Last Man Standing”), Richard Baker and Rick Messina will also serve as executive producers. Tim Allen is also an executive producer on the series.
All three previous “Santa Clause” films are available to stream on Disney+.
