Tim Allen to Reprise Role in The Santa Clause Series for Disney+

The Santa Clause

Disney+ has announced a new series based on The Santa Clause movies today. The series will star Tim Allen as Scott Calvin/Santa Claus. Allen will also serve as Executive Producer for the series.

In this new series, Scott Calvin is nearing his 65th birthday and realizing that his time as Santa Claus can’t go on forever. In fact, he’s finding that he is not quite as good at his Santa duties as he would like anymore. On top of that, he has a family with two kids who have grown up at the North Pole that could benefit from more normal life. With all of that in mind, Calvin sets off to find a replacement as Santa Claus and with that, life down south from the North Pole for him and his family.

Tim Allen’s original portrayal as Scott Calvin/Santa Claus won him a People’s Choice Award for the 1994’s The Santa Clause. He went on to reprise the role in the two sequels that followed, The Santa Clause 2 (2002) and The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause (2006).

Allen has a long relationship with The Walt Disney Company. He starred in ABC’s long-running series Home Improvement and then The Last Man Standing. He lent his voice to Buzz Lightyear in Pixar’s Toy Story movies. He starred in Disney’s Jungle 2 Jungle, the remake of The Shaggy Dog, and Wild Hogs. He also narrated the 2012 Disneynature documentary Chimpanzee. Outside of Disney, he starred as Jason Nesmith in Galaxy Quest.

The Santa Clause series will begin production in Los Angeles in March. Award-winning Jack Burditt (30 Rock, Modern Family, Frasier, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) is the executive producer and showrunner. Kevin Hench (Last Man Standing), Richard Baker, and Rick Messina will also serve as executive producers. The series is Disney branded but is a production of 20th Television. A release date for this series has not been announced at this time.
