Disney’s The Santa Clauses recently closed the chapter on its first season, and you can currently stream the entire first season on Disney+. If you don’t happen to have Disney+ though, you’re in luck, as Disney just revealed it will air the first two episodes of the series on several channels, including ABC, FX, Freeform, and Disney Channel.

“This franchise has had a lasting impact for so many families, truly becoming part of their annual holiday traditions,” Disney Branded Television boss Ayo Davis announced in a press release. “Bringing it back as a series has been a true gift, and I’m grateful to our producing partners at 20th Television and, of course, Tim Allen and team, that we have yet another reason to celebrate this holiday season.”
The official description for The Santa Clauses reads “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.”
