Class will be back in session for Mr. Iglesias. Netflix has renewed the
multi-camera comedy starring stand-up favorite Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias
for a second season.
In the series created by Kevin Hench, Iglesias stars as Gabe, a
good-natured public high school teacher who works at his alma mater.
Gabe takes on teaching gifted but misfit kids to not only save them from
being “counseled out” by a bully bureaucrat assistant principal (Oscar
Nuñez) but also to help them unlock their full potential. Sherri
Shepherd, Jacob Vargas, Maggie Geha, Richard Gant, Cree Cicchino and
Fabrizio Guido co-star.
Hench returns for Season 2 as showrunner and will serve as executive
producer alongside Iglesias, Ron DeBlasio and Joe Meloche.
“A lot of my fans ask me what I would be if I wasn’t a stand-up comic,”
Iglesias said previously. “I tell them a history teacher because I love
history. So it’s great that in this sitcom, I have the opportunity to
live out my alternate reality had I not become Fluffy.”
The series is part of a three-project deal Iglesias signed with Netflix
a year ago, which also includes a pair of stand-up specials from the
