It’s been 16 years since we last caught up with Scott Calvin’s Father Christmas in 2006’s The Santa Clause 3 but now Disney+ is bringing Tim Allen’s character back for one last festive adventure.
While the rest of The Santa Clause stories were all big-screen movies, this new tale is a TV series which is making a home for itself on the Disney+ streaming service.
As a TV series, The Santa Clauses has been split into multiple parts but just how many episodes are there in total and when will they all be released?
The Santa Clauses landed on Disney+ on Wednesday, November 16, 2022.
It’s been nearly 30 years since Scott Calvin accidentally became Santa Claus in 1994’s original film but he is still relishing his role and is just as jolly as ever.
However, with Christmas slowly declining in popularity and Scott not getting any younger as he approaches his 65th birthday, he starts to realize that he can’t be Santa forever.
Wanting to give his family a normal life in the real world, Scott learns that there is a way he could retire and he begins searching for a potential successor to replace him.
But giving up a life he has grown to love will be no easy feat.
In total, The Santa Clauses will consist of six episodes.
The first two of which, will be made available on the series’ release date of November 16.
After that, The Santa Clauses will revert to a weekly release schedule, with new chapters airing each Wednesday until the finale arrives on December 14.
The full release schedule for The Santa Clauses is as follows:
Yes, The Santa Clauses will return for a second season.
That wasn’t the original plan, however, as Disney originally billed the show as a limited mini-series, meaning that its story would have been told over just one season before coming to an end.
But following the show’s season 1 finale on December 14, Disney announced that The Santa Clauses would be returning for a second season after all with Tim Allen to continue in his role as Scott Calvin, aka Santa Claus.
“This franchise has had a lasting impact for so many families, truly becoming part of their annual holiday traditions,” said Ayo Davis, president, Disney Branded Television in a statement quoted by Deadline. “Bringing it back as a series has been a true gift, and I’m grateful to our producing partners at 20th Television and, of course, Tim Allen and team, that we have yet another reason to celebrate this holiday season.”
The Santa Clauses is available to stream now on Disney+ after releasing on Wednesday, November 16, 2022.
