John Krasinski’s “Some Good News” is back from summer vacation — and he brought Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, George Clooney and millions of bucks with him.

The actor and “A Quiet Place” director, 41, rebooted his popular YouTube series — which launched its three-month run at the outset of the pandemic in March — with a “Holiday Special” on Sunday night.

Johnson donned a “Dwanta Claus” costume to help Krasinski announce that sponsor FedEx had donated a whopping $5 million to the Toys for Tots holiday toy drive.

The duo also welcomed Jay Abel, a widowed dad who had previously asked Johnson for a retweet of his “nerdy” eBay listings so he could give his kids a Christmas this year.

“Your story is my favorite of the holiday season. It’s like superdad stuff,” Krasinski told the single dad of two from Copperopolis, California, whose wife died three years ago.

“I’m just trying to be what I expect of a father. I’m not doing nothing special,” Abel told Krasinski and Johnson. “I’m a collector, they’re my favorite stuff — but my children are more important than me.”

But the Rock had a surprise for the dad who was struggling to find employment during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Take all of your stuff off of eBay because Dwanta Claus is going to take care of all of that stuff, man,” said Johnson, who also promised to buy all the items on Jay’s kids’ list, including the new Xbox Series X for his 11-year-old son and L.O.L. Surprise! O.M.G. dolls for his 8-year-old daughter.

The former pro-wrestling superstar also invited the family to the DC Universe in Southern California when it’s safe to go and promised Jay he would give him a leather-bound, signed script to the “Black Adam” movie in which he’s starring.
