In France, he is known as 'The Seinfeld of France' after the famous American comedian Jerry Seinfeld. Not just that, the French government has also honored him with the title of Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters.
Comedy shows are always the best to watch as they make us laugh, and releases the stress of life. 'Huge In France' is one of those shows that has managed to make millions laugh as this comedy show is partially based on famous French comedian Gad Elmaleh’s life. Elmaleh is not only the co-creator of the series but is also the lead actor. The show is about him giving up on his fame in France only to start a new life in America in the hope of reconnecting with his son who does not really care about his existence. We can call this show a semi-autobiographical one knowing the fact that Elmaleh did move to New York from France in real life. The show is created by Gad Elmaleh, Andrew Mogel and Jarrad Paul and directed by Andrew Mogel.
In France, he is known as 'The Seinfeld of France' after the famous American comedian Jerry Seinfeld. Not just that, the French government has also honored him with the title of Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters. However, earlier this year, Elmaleh got into a big controversy where someone posted a video on YouTube showing how the French comedian stole jokes from comics like George Carlin. After the first season, fans really want to know Gad's life in America and how does he make it big there from scratch, and here is everything we know about the second installment.
In an interview with MEA WorldWide, Jordan Ver Hoeve, who plays the role of Luke in the show sounded positive about the renewal and said that he would totally love it. "The story can easily continue, but it's all in the hands of Netflix at the moment," he said. Although Gad Elmaleh also said that there might be a second season happening, nothing official as if yet is confirmed.

The first season premiered on April 11, 2019, on Netflix. The show consists of eight episodes and the entire episodes came on the same day. There hasn't been much heard or talked about the renewal of the second season, but if the figures and numbers are good, then we will see Gad coming back on screen sometime in April 2020.
When the rest of the world doesn’t realize you’re a big deal... HUGE IN FRANCE is STREAMING STARTING THIS FRIDAY on NETFLIX.@gadelmaleh @hugeinfrance @netflix @hayeslady @JVH_Official @scottytakeda @jarradpaul pic.twitter.com/T02S2WZT4k— Matthew Del Negro (@MatthewDelNegro) April 8, 2019
As mentioned earlier, Gad is known as "France's Jerry Seinfeld", however, he also knows that in the US he is nothing but a common man. He left France and everything he had including the fame and status to make things work between him and his son Luke. While Luke considers Jason as his only father, Gad tries to win his attention, trust, and affection by plotting against Jason with the help of his assistant Brian. The first season ended with Gad struggling between his comic instincts and the promise he made to Luke. There is indeed a lot of scope and material for the renewal of the show and as Ver Hoeve said, who plays the role of the 16-year-old, "Let's all put those thumbs up on Netflix, shout it out, do what you can, and hope."
