What to expect from season 2 and who you’ll see

The Santa Clauses series is based on The Santa Clause films that were first introduced in 1994 and starred Tim Allen in the titular role. In the show, he reprises his role and it serves as a direct sequel to the third movie. In season 1, we saw how Scott Calvin (Allen) was ready to retire his role of being Santa to spend more time with his family and give his kids a chance to lead a normal life. And so, he set out to find the perfect person to take his place. Well, things didn’t go as planned by the end of the first season. While Scott and his family saved Christmas, he couldn’t find a worthy successor. So where do they go from here?

I’m so excited about season 2 because Scott, as well as us fans, know who the perfect candidate – his son Cal! The next chapter of the story sees the Calvin family back in the North Pole and Scott focusing on training his son to “eventually take over the family business as Santa Claus,” per the synopsis. However being the next Old St. Nick might not come so naturally to Cal. Plus, a new challenge arises and could get in the way – the arrival of new character The Mad Santa, who believes he’s the true Santa Claus.

And while it may take some time for Cal to get the hang of things, I think we’re going to end the season with him taking on the mantle from his father. I knew from season 1 that this is the direction the story should have gone, and now it’s here. Move over Mad Santa, the job is meant for Cal!

Joining Allen, who executive produces the Christmas comedy, onscreen to reprise their roles are Elizabeth Mitchell as Mrs. Claus/Carol; Austin Kane as Cal Calvin Claus; Elizabeth Allen-Dick as Sandra Calvin Claus; Devin Bright as Noel; and Matilda Lawler as Betty. There’s also a few new cast members and characters we’re introduced to this time around. And there’s two we definitely want to highlight.

That would be Eric Stonestreet as Scott’s new rival Magnus Antas/The Mad Santa, and Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias as Kris Kringle. Stonestreet is best known for his role as Cameron Tucker in the sitcom Modern Family. Iglesias is a stand-up comedian and actor as well, having starred in the Netflix sitcom Mr. Iglesias.

Joining the duo as newcomers are Marta Kessler as Olga; 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.
