Parents have been warned about one of Disney's new Christmas series after a mum shared a post on Facebook.

Taking to a family Facebook group, the mum warned others about Tim Allen's latest series, The Santa Clauses, which was released on the streaming platform last week.

In the six-part series - which takes place 30 years on from the OG The Santa Clause - Scott Calvin returns as Santa, with a whole host of fresh new problems to solve.

Approaching the age of 65, the series follows Scott as he takes a step back from his role, choosing to spend more time with his family - his wife Carol and their kids, played by Elizabeth Allen-Dick and Austin Kane.

But first, he needs to choose a replacement to take over - although, in true Scott fashion, things don't quite go to plan. He ends up choosing the wrong successor, with the future of Christmas hanging in the balance.

The official synopsis explains: "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."

But after watching the show, one woman explained she hadn't expected there to be so much discussion about Santa 'not existing'.

"Just a heads up to anyone planning on watching the new Santa Clause series on Disney. There is a lot of talk of Santa not existing and people not believing in Santa," she wrote.

But other Facebook users were divided over the mum's post, while some thanked the mum for the warning, others pointed out that a number of Christmas movies also include this kind of narrative.

One person wrote: "Like many Christmas movies its about someone who doesn't believe or questions it but in the end they are proved wrong and then end up seeing or meeting santa and then they believe throughout adult life too."

While another said: "That's generally the stories in the santa clause films."

And a third added: "The whole point of many well known Santa films is that people (especially adults) stop believing…and they need to believe for him to be real."

Alongside Allen, Elizabeth Mitchell returns as Santa Claus' wife, Mrs Claus, and Eric Lloyd as Scott's son Charlie Calvin will also make a comeback.

Much to fans' delight, David Krumholtz also makes an appearance as number one elf Bernard, despite being absent from Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause.

You can catch the series on Disney+ now.
