Disney Plus is doing a ‘Santa Clause’ series with Tim Allen and we’re ready for some nostalgia

Tim Allen returns as your favorite childhood Santa!

Disney Plus has just announced that the actor best known for his roles in Home improvement, last man standing andtoy story will reprise his role as a happy holiday icon in a new Santa Claus limited series on the streaming platform.

“In the Disney+ series, Scott Calvin is about to turn 65 and realizes he can’t be Santa Claus forever,” Disney said in a press release announcing the show on Friday.

“He is starting to lose a step in his duties as Santa Claus and more importantly he has a family who could benefit from a life in the normal world, especially his two children who grew up in the [North] Pole. With plenty of elves, children, and family to satisfy, Scott sets out to find a suitable replacement Santa while preparing his family for a new adventure in life south of the pole.”

We last saw Allen don the red and white suit in 2006 Santa Claus 3: The Escape Clause, who co-starred with Canadian Martin Short.

Although little information is available on the series, we do know that production begins in March in the heat and sun of Los Angeles.

Santa Claus, Santa Claus 2 and Santa Claus 3 features Allen as Scott Calvin, a businessman who takes on the title of Santa Claus. Calvin deals with the duties and responsibilities that Santa’s red coat brings, while balancing his personal life as father and husband.

Does he have a good work-life balance? Probably not, but it’s something we can all relate to in one way or another!

No release date has been set, but we’ll assume it’ll arrive in time for the holiday season.

While we wait, we will sit in front of the fireplace with milk and cookies while watching Santa on Disney+.
