Santa Claus has an arrival date. Disney+ revealed today that The Santa Clauses will debut with a two-episode premiere on Wednesday, November 8, followed by new episodes weekly.
In the series’ sophomore season, the Calvin family is back at the North Pole, as Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) continues his role as Santa Claus after his retirement plans were thwarted when he failed to find a worthy successor in season one. Now that Scott and his family have successfully saved Christmas, Scott turns his focus towards training his son Cal (Austin Kane) to eventually take over the “family business” as Santa Claus.
