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

Disney has announced that Tim Allen will be reprising his role of Scott Calvin in an upcoming Disney+ Original limited series titled "The Santa Clause". The series is based on the Walt Disney Pictures' blockbuster franchise of the same name.

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.

Allen won a People's Choice Award for his portrayal of Scott Calvin, Santa Claus's proxy, complete with expanding waistline, rosy cheeks, and snow-white whiskers in the 1994 film "The Santa Clause.". He went on to play the role in two sequels, both hugely popular movies, 2002's "The Santa Clause 2" and 2006's "The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause."

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.
