Comedian Gabriel Iglesias delivered the punchlines in Season 1 of his Netflix sitcom. Now he’s been granted an encore performance in Season 2, but what may await?
Comedian Gabriel Iglesias’s Netflix debut went smoothly, and that’s referring to his acting. His show Mr. Iglesias first released on Netflix in June, and was light-hearted, comical, and full of lessons.
The sitcom stars Iglesias as himself, a history teacher/alumni of Woodrow Wilson High School who aims to bring out the best in underrated students. Season 1 culminated in the highly anticipated academic competition between Mr. Iglesias’s underdogs and the “intelligent” students, which resulted in a victory by Mr. Iglesias and his students.
There were great lessons and themes sprinkled throughout the first season, such as never doubting yourself, just believing, working hard, and seeing the best in anyone. The comedy sitcom has luckily been renewed for a second season.
What will the upcoming season possibly focus on? Here are some questions before the release:
Will new students be introduced?
Mr. Iglesias helped bring to life the abilities of students who were never given the chance to show their true colors. In leading this group of students, he was successfully able to defeat his close friend and colleague Tony Ochoa’s (Jacob Vargas) “smart” group in an academic decathlon.

Now, one interesting point to mention is whether Mr. Iglesias will be tasked with doing the same thing again with several other underachieving, but potential-filled students added to his class.
Will the old students who broke through take it another step further?
Mr. Iglesias’s students just needed the opportunity to showcase their abilities. Though one of his students named Marisol Fuentes (Cree Cicchino) displayed her intellectual capabilities throughout the season, much of his other students performed well in the academic competition.
Now the question remains, can these students continue to impress? Winning the academic competition against a “superior” opponent is a big deal; however, what qualifies as a step above that? Season 2 may focus around further growth of these same students or even the introduction of some new ones as mentioned before.
What’s in store for Mr. Iglesias himself?
A promotion, perks, some seniority? These are all some reward options that Mr. Iglesias has earned for guiding his students to an academic competition victory and helping them realize they can accomplish anything if they set their mind to it.
Though Mr. Iglesias is amazing at his job, it will be interesting to see whether he takes a step forward in his career and take on a new role or keep trying to bring out untapped abilities in all his students.
Stay tuned for Mr. Iglesias Season 2 and comment below any questions you may have about the upcoming season.
