Netflix is bringing back yet another fan favorite. According to Deadline, the steamer has set June 17 as the premiere date for part two of the hit series “Mr. Iglesias.”
Led by stand-up comedian Gabriel “Fluffy” Iglesias, the series follows “a good-natured public high school teacher in Long Beach, California, 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.”
The second season centers on romance as Mr. Iglesias convinces two of his students to audition for the roles of Romeo and Juliet in the school play, all while Principal Paula, played by Sherri Shepherd, serves as Cupid to find him the girl of his dreams.
“Mr. Iglesias” was created by Kevin Hench, who also produces the series along with Iglesias and Peter Murrieta. The cast also includes Jacob Vargas, Maggie Geha, Richard Gant and Tucker Albrizzi.
Netflix has announced several series making their way back to the platform just in time for the summer. “The Politician,” from renowned writer and creator, Ryan Murphy will begin streaming on June 19. The new season has plenty of political and familial plot twists, as we pick up Payton’s trajectory for his long-held obsession: becoming President of the United States.
The service will also bring back “The Umbrella Academy.” The original series, which is based on the Dark Horse Comics title created and written by Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Bá, comes back to the platform on July 31.
