Netflix not renewing 'The Big Show Show' for season two


Netflix and WWE Studios' "The Big Show Show" isn't returning for season two.

Deadline reported today that Netflix has decided not to order a second season of "The Big Show Show." A new Christmas special episode of the show will be released on Netflix this December, but Deadline notes that the episode isn't a series finale. It's a standalone episode that was filmed before the COVID-19 pandemic and doesn't continue the storylines of season one.

"The Big Show Show" co-creator Jason Berger tweeted about the series not being renewed: "on behalf of the staff, cast, and crew of #thebigshowshow...thank you to everyone who watched either with your fam or alone in your basement. Netflix was a dream to work with AND we had a blast making the show. Rare air! Please take care of each other!"

"The Big Show Show" debuted on Netflix this April and featured eight episodes. It starred Big Show (real name Paul Wight), Allison Munn, Reylynn Caster, Juliet Donenfeld, Lily Brooks O'Briant, and Jaleel White. The description for the sitcom was: "When the teenage daughter of Big Show, a retired world-famous WWE Superstar, comes to live with him, his wife, and two other daughters, he quickly becomes outnumbered and outsmarted. Despite being 7 feet tall and weighing 400 pounds, he is no longer the center of attention."

Deadline noted that Netflix's series "Ashley Garcia: Genius in Love" also isn't being renewed for season two but will have a stand-alone Christmas special.
