‘The Santa Clause’ The Series Coming to Disney+
So the big Disney+ news going into the weekend is that Tim Allen will be reprising his role as jolly old St. Nick in “The Santa Claus” the series which has apparently been ordered for Disney+!
According to a recent piece in Variety, the limited edition series will follow Scott Calvin who is on the brink of his 65th Birthday and realizes that he can’t be Santa forever. He’s having a hard time keeping up with his Santa duties and he wants to spend more time with his family in the “normal world.” With elves, children and family to please, Scott sets out to find a suitable Santa replacement.
The series will mark the fourth time that Allen has suited up for the role of Calvin/Santa. The first The Santa Clause film came out in 1994 with two sequels in 2002 and 2006.
According to Variety, Jack Burditt who created the series Last Man Standing has signed on as executive producers and showrunner for the series. Allen will also be executive producing the project along with Keven Hench, Richard Baker and Rick Messina.
We also know that Disney branded series will be produced by 20th Television and production is expected to kick off in March 2022.
We cannot wait to see Allen return to this iconic role and we’ll keep our fingers crossed that we see the series make a debut during the 2022 Holiday Season! Readers are encouraged to keep following along with MickeyBlog and we promise to keep you updates!
