Where’s Yelena Belova when you need her to take the piss out of Santa Claus for his version of the “superhero landing?” If it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, it’s because department stores are out of control by lining aisles with Christmas trees before the best holiday, Halloween, has a chance to shine. Additionally, Disney+ is proud to announce its November 8 premiere date for The Santa Clauses Season 2! Alongside The Santa Clauses Season 2 premiere date, the mouse-eared streaming service debuted new art for the Holly Jolly series, featuring Tim Allen’s Santa Claus poised for action as the busiest night of the year approaches.

In the second season, the Calvin family is back in the North Pole as Scott Calvin continues his role as Santa Claus after 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 focuses on training his son Cal to eventually take over the “family business” as Santa Claus. However, some North Pole magic brings an unexpected challenge to Scott’s plan: Magnus Antas, otherwise known as the Mad Santa!

Eric Stonestreet, who comes off as a big teddy bear in ABC’s Modern Family, plays Magnus Antas in The Santa Clauses Season 2. This not-so-jolly Christmas-themed character reigned in the 14th century and is returning to take Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) off the board and reclaim the North Pole. What a jerk! I thought Santa was supposed to be nice!

The Santa Clauses Season 2 is produced by 20th Television, a part of Disney Television Studios, and is currently in production. Allen will executive produce the second season. Returning to spread more Christmas-themed cheer across Disney+ is Elizabeth Mitchell as Mrs. Claus/Carol, Elizabeth Dick as Sandra Calvin Claus, Austin Kane as Cal Calvin Claus, and Devin Bright as Santa’s elf best friend, Noel. Matilda Lawler will reprise her role of Santa’s chief of staff, Betty, as a recurring guest star.

Disney is opening the doors to additional guest stars for the sophomore season, including Marta Kessler as Olga, a cranky, steadfast gnome who doesn’t understand “feelings” and “empathy” and sidekick to The Mad Santa, along with returning guest stars Liam Kyle as Gary, Isabella Bennett as Edie, Sasha Knight as Crouton, Ruby Jay as Riley, Mia Lynn Bangunan as Pontoon, and Laura San Giacomo as La Befana, the Christmas Witch.

Ho ho ho boy, that’s a lot of people to add to Santa’s list of naughty and nice individuals. The Santa Clauses was a significant hit on Disney+, with the series entering the Top 5 most-watched original series on Disney+ by hours streamed from November 3 to December 31.

The Santa Clauses Season 2 premieres exclusively on Disney+ on November 8, 2023!
