David Krumholtz to Return to the North Pole as He Joins ‘The Santa Clauses’ on Disney+


If you were disappointed when The Santa Clause 3 came out and Bernard was nowhere to be found, you’re in luck: he’s coming back!

Deadline broke the news earlier this week that David Krumholtz will be reprising his role as Bernard the elf in the upcoming Disney+ spin-off series The Santa Clauses. Krumhotlz has been with the franchise since the first movie back in 1994 when fans met him as head elf Bernard. A bit of a grump, but an effective leader in Santa’s workshop, Bernard had a good heart and quickly became a fan favorite. He is the third member of the original cast to return, with Tim Allen and Elizabeth Mitchell are already set to return as Scott Calvin/Santa and Carol Calvin/Mrs. Claus, respectively.

The Disney+ series is set to follow Scott as he reaches his 65th birthday and realizes that he can’t be Santa forever. His Santa magic is failing, and, more importantly, his family, including two kids with Carol, could benefit from life in the “normal” world away from the North Pole. With so many people to try to please, from elves to children and family, Scott sets out to find the perfect replacement Santa while also getting his family ready for life outside the Pole.

The show will also feature Elizabeth Allen-Dick as Sandra, Devin Bright as Noel, Austin Kane as Cal, Matilda Lawler as Betty, Rupali Redd as Grace, and Kal Penn as Simon Choski. Emmy winner Jack Burditt (30 Rock, Modern Family) is the executive producer and showrunner. Tim Allen also executive produces alongside Kevin Hench (Last Man Standing), Richard Baker and Rick Messina, and Jason Winer and Jon Radler for Small Dog Picture Company.

LeeAnn is children's librarian who joined Nerds and Beyond in 2020 as a way to stretch her writing skills and connect with others who have the same pop culture passions as she does. She loves music, reading (obviously), and any TV show that can grab and hold her attention. Currently some of her favorite things to nerd out over include Supernatural, Prodigal Son, Louden Swain and Percy Jackson (books, theater, or upcoming show - lets leave the movies out of it).
