  • Gabriel "Fluffy" Iglesias planned to film the final two shows of his month-long San Antonio stand for a Netflix special.

In great news for local "Fluffy" fans, comedian Gabriel Iglesias tweeted that he'll return to San Antonio to film a Netflix special after being forced to cancel his scheduled taping when he contracted COVID-19.

Last month, the standup called off the last few dates in nearly a monthlong stand at San Antonio's Tobin Center for the Performing Arts after his diagnosis. He'd planned to tape a pair of July 17 shows for a special on the streaming service.

After a fan tweeted to Iglesias over the weekend to ask what would become of the Netflix taping, the comic responded by saying, "I said San Antonio is gonna get a special and San Antonio is gonna get a special."

Iglesias added that he's working to nail down a date for the return engagement.
