It bothers Tim Allen that no one ever talked about the dead Santa Claus from the first movie.

Holes are an unfortunate part of many movies and shows. Sometimes fans are quick to point them out, but they can be actors who are hampered by the works they’re cast in, which also have plot holes. Tim Allen stated how he was troubled by the plot holes Santa Clausas he said, “I never understood, not even in the movie, why the elves when I showed up at the North Pole didn’t go, ‘Hey, what happened to the other one?’ You know, I just jump in the sled with the kid and off we go.”
Tim Allen also adds that Mrs. Claus was never informed that her husband was dead, which is likely the original Santa Claus. Allen also revealed some Santa Clauses to fill in some of those plot holes, especially now that he has a family of his own as the series continues. We would assume that Santa Claus could be almost anyone if the story is set up around the idea that the jolly man is more of an entity than an actual person.
Tim Allen returns Santa Clauses with the thought of finally putting the red hat to rest. Allen’s Scott Calvin is much older and ready to retire from the role of Santa Claus in the new sequel series, and now he has to find a suitable replacement. Given the aforementioned theory that anyone can become Santa Claus, perhaps the original person who died can come back and save the day, or we could witness the introduction of another Christmas soulless person who is filled with holiday cheer enough to become Claus.
Tim Allen is not the only actor Santa Clauses returns for this new installment in the series. David Krumholtz will also reprise his role as Bernard the leprechaun, much to the delight of all who have been fans of the series. Another idea for who could be the next Santa Claus could be painting directly with Bernard, who worked long enough as the “head” elf to give him a chance to step into the sleigh.
Either way, Tim Allen returns to one of his best roles Santa Clausesand movies have always been the ones that made us all believe in the magic of Christmas again. Since 2006, when there was no film in the franchise Santa Clause 3: Escape Clause he was released. Although the film received mixed reviews, it still earned $110 million in worldwide box office numbers against a $12 million budget.
We’re not entirely sure how the new series will work, but Tim Allen has always been great as Scott Calvin in the franchise, and now he has a new series to finally say goodbye to one of his most iconic roles. Santa Clauses debuted with two episodes on November 16th on Disney+, with the third airing yesterday, November 23rd. The limited series will run for six episodes and will officially end on December 14th, just in time for Christmas and a jolly farewell to Allen.
