Renewed Or Cancelled?
The Santa Clauses is the latest Disney IP to get the serialized treatment, slotting into the usual Wednesday timeslot and delivering a comedic story across 6 episodes. After finishing this one, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:
What is The Santa Clauses about?
Following on from the successful Christmas movie series, The Santa Claus, this limited series picks up three decades after the events that saws him become Santa Claus. Scott Calvin’s magic is starting to fade and as he’s about to turn 65, he realizes he can’t be Santa forever. The only solution is to try and find a replacement to take over, whilst simultaneously preparing his family for a new adventure in the South Pole.
Along the way, Scott discovers a new clause that forces him to re-think his role as Santa – and as a father.
Has The Santa Clauses been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, The Santa Clauses has been renewed for a second season. Given the nature of the show’s content, that’s perhaps unsurprising given Disney’s desire to pump out more streaming content.
Generally Disney, along with other streamers, gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly. Other times, it can take months before Disney actually make a decision over a show’s future.
Despite a pretty mixed reaction, the numbers must have been pretty good for The Santa Clauses, which should help to stave off the 1.5 billion in losses Disney suffered last quarter.
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Disney have only just green-lit a sequel. Expect about a year’s turnaround time and another season to drop in Christmas 2023. Despite the show being envisioned as a limited series, we’d imagine Tim Allen and a host of other characters will be returning to the fray.
