The Santa Clauses is a Disney Plus spin-off series starting where the film franchise left off.
Fans of Tim Allen’s performance as Scott Calvin, an ordinary man forced to step into Santa’s shoes to rescue Christmas in the 1994 film The Santa Clause and its sequels, will be happy to see him reprise his role.
But now Scott realizes he is nearing retirement and must choose a worthy replacement.
When Will the Santa Clauses Be Available?
Disney made the big announcement at their D23 2022 convention. In connection with this announcement, they also released the first-look trailer for The Santa Clauses.
The limited series will premiere on Disney+ on November 16, 2022, a Wednesday. The show’s first two episodes will be accessible when it debuts.
Following that, episodes will air once a week. According to the show’s IMDB page, there will be five episodes.
The Plot of the Santa Clauses Series
The Santa Clauses television series follows Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) as he approaches his 65th birthday. His Santa duties are finally catching up with him, and he’s no longer as efficient as he once was.
Furthermore, he believes that living beyond the North Pole would benefit his family, mainly his daughter Sandra (played by Tim Allen’s real-life daughter Elizabeth Allen-Dick), who is lonely with no other people for companionship.
However, with his elves, the children of the globe, and Christmas all dependent on him, he must ensure that he selects the perfect replacement for the role before preparing his family for their next trip.

Will a Second Season of the Santa Clauses Air?
