The Santa Claus series finds its Christmas witch

The holidays are about to turn witchy.

Just shoot me! alum Laura San Giacomo has been cast in the upcoming Disney+ series Santa Clausesaccording Deadline.

San Giacomo will play “La Befana, a Christmas witch from Italian folklore who delivered treats to good children on Epiphany morning,” according to the outlet. “She now resides in the Wobbly Woods of the North Pole.”

Santa Clauses is a revival of the 1994 series Santa and its sequels, which featured Tim Allen as Santa (aka Scott Calvin).

Allen reprises his role on the show, in which “Scott is about to celebrate his 65th birthday and realizes he can’t be Santa Claus forever,” according to Disney+. “He suddenly starts to lose his Santa magic, and more importantly, he has a family that could benefit from a life in the normal world, especially his two children who grew up in the North Pole.”
