Last month, Disney announced it was creating a brand new limited series that is a continuation of the “Santa Clause” franchise, which will see Tim Allen reprising his beloved role of Scott Calvin.
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.
Production is set to begin in Los Angeles in March. 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.
It was also recently revealed that Elizabeth Mitchell will also be returning to play his wife, Mrs. Claus.
When the series was announced, the series was going by the working title of “The Santa Clause”, but according to The DisInsider, the actual title of this series is going to be called “The Clauses”.
The first three “Santa Clause” films are available on Disney+ now.
