Despite receiving average reviews from the critics upon its premiere in April 2020, the ‘The Big Show Show,’ was appreciated by the pro-wrestling fans, who loved seeing the WWE legend play a fictional version of himself. The comedy series follows a retired wrestler, Big Show, as he navigates the stormy waters of parenthood while struggling to adapt to regular life. The family sitcom was lauded for Paul Donald Wight’s charismatic performance, and its feel-good element, which is in a similar vein as popular shows like ‘Full House’ and ‘Family Matters.’

As far as season 2 is concerned, here’s what we know. Although the show failed to strike a chord with critics, it managed to get a thumbs up from the audiences. The sitcom possesses the potential to extend beyond a season, provided the makers decide to explore other facets of the life of the former wrestler.
