It has been 28 years since fans were first introduced to Scott Calvin, AKA Santa Claus.

However, Tim Allen's iconic character is set to make a comeback in a new Santa Clause sequel series for Disney+.

The 68-year-old actor starred in the lead role for the film trilogy, which ran between 1994 and 2006, and he's now preparing to reprise the role for the upcoming series.

A logline for the show explains: "In the Disney+ series, Scott Calvin is on the brink of his 65th birthday and realising 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."

Production for the new series will begin in Los Angeles in March, The Wrap reports.

Tim previously admitted that he relished playing the part of Santa Clause.
Speaking about shooting The Santa Clause 2, he shared: "It was fun because the children on the set - the elves - actually believed that I was Santa Clause.

"It was a tremendous amount of responsibility on my shoulders and I didn't want to disappoint them. I had to stay in character all the time so I couldn't swear or get mad."

We can't wait to see the new series.
