Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost) will return as Carol a.k.a. Mrs. Claus in “The Santa Clause” (working title), a Disney+ Original limited series. Tim Allen will executive-produce the series and will also be returning as Scott Calvin from Walt Disney Pictures’ blockbuster franchise.
In the Disney+ series, Scott Calvin is on the brink of his 65th birthday and realizing that he can’t be Santa forever. He’s starting to lose a step in his Santa duties, and more importantly, he’s got a family who could benefit from a life in the normal world, especially his two kids who have grown up at the Pole. With a lot of elves, children, and family to please, Scott sets out to find a suitable replacement Santa while preparing his family for a new adventure in a life south of the pole.
Mitchell first appeared as Carol in the 2002 film The Santa Clause 2 and also again in 2006 for The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause.
The actress is best known for her roles on ABC’s Lost and Once Upon a Time. She also starred in NBC’s Revolution and in Netflix’s Season 2 of Outer Banks. She can be seen next in Netflix’s upcoming vampire drama First Kill.
Production on “The Santa Clause” is set to begin in Los Angeles in March. Award-winning Jack Burditt (“30 Rock,” “Modern Family,” “Frasier,” “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”) is the executive producer and showrunner and Kevin Hench (“Last Man Standing”), Richard Baker and Rick Messina will also serve as executive producers.
The Disney Branded Television series is a production of 20th Television.
