Disney+ limited series Santa not only brings back Tim Allen to play the legendary character (Calvin), but also Elizabeth Mitchell to reprise her role as Carol, or Mrs. Claus, depending on Deadline reports. Mitchell joined the famed franchise in the 2002 sequel Santa Claus 2 and was also part of Santa Claus 3: The Escape Clause.
The final episode will pick up on Scott Calvin’s 65th birthday, as he realizes he can’t be Santa Claus forever. He then embarks on the search for a replacement, while preparing his family for a new adventure. Last man standing creator Jack Burditt serves as showrunner.

Burditt and Allen will serve as executives on the project alongside Kevin Hench, Richard Baker and Rick Messina. Production is set to begin in March in Los Angeles, California.
The official synopsis for the series reads as follows;
He begins to lose a step in his duties as Santa Claus and, more importantly, he has a family that could benefit from a life in the normal world, especially his two children who grew up at the 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.”
For the uninitiated, Mitchell is widely known for her roles in ABC’s Lost and Once upon a time as well as NBCs Revolution. She is now preparing for the next vampire drama first murder, which will be released later this year. It was produced by Emma Roberts. Mitchell also recently joined Ellen Burstyn, James Caan and Ann-Margret in Queen Bees.
Earlier in the month, Disney+ shared a photo of Tim Allen and Santa Claus from the movie while announcing his return to the franchise. They wrote, “It’s a clause for celebration! Tim Allen will reprise his role as Scott Calvin from ‘The Santa Clause’ in a new original limited series coming soon to #DisneyPlus”. Take a look.
Mitchell previously expressed excitement about rebooting Santa Claus. In a conversation with HEY, she said, “These films were a joy to make. To make people happy, I mean, what a gift.”
