Elizabeth Mitchell and Austin Kane on Continuing the Holiday Magic with ‘The Santa Clauses’

Elizabeth Mitchell and Austin Kane star as Carol / Mrs. Claus and Cal in The Santa Clauses. The first two episodes are now streaming on Disney+.

Scott Calvin is back! After being Santa Claus for nearly thirty years, he’s as jolly as ever. But as Christmas declines in popularity, so does his Santa magic. Scott struggles to keep up with the demands of the job, as well as being there for his family. Upon discovering there is a way to retire from his post, Scott considers stepping down as Santa Claus and finding a worthy successor so that he can become a better father and husband.


Mitchell previously played the role of Carol / Mrs. Claus in The Santa Clause 2 and The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause. Additional film work includes When Time Got Louder, The Purge: Election Year, Queen Bees, Answers to Nothing, Frequency, Nurse Betty, What We Found, Witch Hunt, Double Bang, and Running Scared. On television, the actress can be seen in Outer Banks, First Kill, The Expanse, FBI: International, Dead of Summer, Once Upon a Time, Crossing Lines, Revolution, Lost, V, ER, Boston Legal, as well as Significant Others.
