Since its release, however, Santa, Inc. has received extremely negative reviews and currently holds a 4% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The holiday-inspired series wouldn't, of course, be the first time that Rogen has incorporated his signature (and popular) crude comedy into animated media--the 2016 comedy Sausage Party was filled with mature humor--leaving many people wondering why Santa, Inc. has seemingly bombed with critics and audiences. Rogen, in fact, blames white supremacists for the negative reviews, citing the series' progressive values as a fundamental reason for their dislike. Even still, when a show gets this much buzz, it is almost certain that many will be tuning in to watch in order to judge for themselves. Let's dive into the possibility of Santa, Inc. getting a second season.
The cast is led by the talented Rogen and Silverman. The chances of the show returning without these two are slim to none. The series is also filled with other A-list talents. Nicholas Braun, for instance, voices the character of Devin The Intern. Braun has been gaining a lot of praise and popularity mostly due to his fan-favorite role of cousin Greg on HBO's Succession. The cast also includes comedic actor Craig Robinson who has worked with Rogan before in films like This Is The End. Oscar-nominated actress Gabourey Sidibe plays Goldie, a bi-sexual reindeer, and stand-up comedian Maria Bamford takes the part of Mrs. Claus. With a star-studded cast such as this, it would be expected that they would return for a second season. At the same time, Rogen is known to work with several comedic actors such as Paul Rudd and Jonah Hill in the past. It could be expected that some of his long-time collaborators could sign on for season two.
Santa, Inc.'s plot in season one follows Candy as she tries to break through the patriarchy of the North Pole and become the first woman Santa Claus. Along the way, she overcomes several obstacles with the help of her friends. The season ends with her intern Devin being offered the position of Santa. Candy starts a revolution for Santa Inc's workers and leads a walkout on Christmas Eve. On her way home from work one day, Candy accidentally runs over Junior the reindeer (Robinson) and flees the accident. We find out that Junior is still alive, leaving a major cliffhanger for the audience. The series has many strings left untied and sets up the possibility for a second season where Candy will continue her quest in bringing down the patriarchy, while also facing criminal consequences for hurting Junior.
Santa, Inc. has been getting a shocking amount of hate from audiences. The series has become the lowest-rated television show in history and has landed the number one spot in IMDB's lowest-rated series. Rogen has stated that tens of thousands of white supremacists'' are to blame for the low rating. We live in a country that is extremely politically divided. Woke culture is a rather new concept that many people are not ready to hop on. One would think that themes of equality and feminism would be something that all people could get behind. At the end of the day, one has to wonder whether it is the message that the show is trying to convey, or the actual creative content that is creating so much hate. Rogen and Silverman's comedy is usually very popular, but there seems to be a disconnect between their latest project and some audiences. Maybe it is the fact that Christmas is so sacred to many, and there is resistance to seeing those traditions change. Maybe the world isn't quite ready for a woman Santa Claus. In the end, viewership will inform HBO Max's decision on whether the much-talked-about series will get a season 2.
If renewed, the same voice cast might return for season 2. Seth Rogen and Sarah Silverman may return to lend their voices for Santa Claus and Candy Smalls, respectively. We can also expect to hear the voices of Leslie Grossman (Cookie), Gabourey Sidibe (Goldie), Nicholas Braun (Devin), Craig Robinson (Junior), Maria Bamford (Mrs. Claus and Big Candy), Joel Kim Booster (Jingle Jim), and Beck Bennett (P3).
If renewed, we can expect season 2 to pick up from the events of the season 1 finale. After seriously considering the consequences of her actions, Candy may have some significant choices to make for her life and ambitions ahead. We can expect Cookie and Goldie to stand by Candy, irrespective of good or bad times. The threat from Junior may continue in the potential second season. Most importantly, we can expect a hysterical comedy-ride again, enveloped in the vibrancy of the Christmas season, if the show gets greenlit for a sophomore season.
The series leaves viewers on a cliffhanger with questions like, Is Junior alive If he is alive, what lies in store for Candy She could technically be charged with homicide unless she can find a way to escape her fate. Only the second season of Santa.Inc could attempt to answer these questions.
The end is nigh for the last of humanity in an extended trailer for the seventh and final season of The 100 on The CW. Even at the end of the world, humanity still has a talent for violence and bloodshed.
We do have one quibble. According to the video below, Santa totally blew off New England last year! He went straight from St. Louis to London. What's up with thatNow you can track Santa along Google Earth by Twitter and Facebook, and there's a whole website (in seven different languages) with games and information. We plan on getting in on the fun, too, by adding @noradsanta to our news Mashup on the home page.Also, beginning at midnight, Mountain Standard Time, on Dec. 24, visitors to the website can watch Santa as he prepares his sleigh, checks his list, and goes through all of his preparations to ensure he has a successful journey.As soon as Santa takes off from the North Pole, children can also track him with up-to-the-minute updates on Google Maps and Google Earth through the website. You can phone and e-mail for updates from trackers beginning at 2 a.m. MST (4 a.m. Eastern Standard Time) on Dec. 24 until 3 a.m. MST (5 a.m. EST) Dec. 25.
