Tracy Morgan to play the Easter Bunny in The Santa Clauses season 2 alongside stars Tim Allen and Elizabeth Mitchell.
Deadline reports that Tracy Morgan will be joining the cast of The Santa Clauses season 2. If you’re wondering who Morgan might be playing in the Disney+ series, he’ll be hopping into the role of that purveyor of decorated eggs and candy-coloured grass… the Easter Bunny!
The first season of The Santa Clauses found Scott Calvin (Tim Allen) returning after being Santa Claus for nearly thirty years, and 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. Allen will be returning for the second season, with Scott turning his attention towards training his son Calvin to eventually take over the family business as Santa Claus.
In addition to Tim Allen and Tracy Morgan, the second season of The Santa Clauses will also feature Elizabeth Mitchell as Mrs. Claus/Carol, Elizabeth Allen-Dick as Sandra Calvin Claus, Austin Kane as Cal Calvin Claus, and Devin Bright as Santa’s elf bestie Noel. New additions to the second season include Eric Stonestreet as Magnus Antas, aka The Mad Santa, and Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias as Kris “Kringle” Moreno. Matilda Lawler will also return as Betty, Santa’s chief of staff, as a recurring guest star.
Our own Alex Maidy reviewed The Santa Clauses prior to its debut and found a lot to like. “The Santa Clauses is not a bold reinvention of the franchise nor is it anything revolutionary when it comes to Christmas entertainment. What it does do, similar to Disney+ hit sequel Hocus Pocus 2, is find the reason why audiences connected with the original The Santa Clause and replicate it,Maidy wrote. “By making this into a series, I felt more invested in Scott Calvin’s journey as Santa. The Santa Clauses is far funnier than the first three films combined and benefits from Tim Allen feeling energized in the role more than he has in years. This is a worthwhile watch that is a fitting revival of The Santa Clause series with welcome returns from fan-favorite characters and the introduction of new ones.” Check out the rest of Maidy’s review right here.
