Inside Job cancelled by Netflix after one season
It’s a sad day for fans of the adult animated conspiracy theory comedy series, Inside Job. Creator Shion Takeuchi confirmed on Sunday that Netflix has decided to cancel the show after just one season. The series, which featured Lizzy Caplan, Christian Slater, and Clark Duke in the lead roles, followed the shadow government and the dysfunctional team responsible for committing the world’s conspiracies. The show was split into two parts, with 10 episodes in each, and released on Netflix in October and November 2022.
Creator Shion Takeuchi heartbroken over cancellation
Back in June 2022, Netflix had announced a renewal for Inside Job for a second season. However, it seems that the streaming giant had a change of heart and decided to reverse the renewal decision. Takeuchi took to Twitter to express her heartbreak over the cancellation, saying, “I’m heartbroken to confirm that Netflix has decided to cancel Season 2 of Inside Job. Over the years, these characters have become real people to me, and I am devastated not to be able to watch them grow up.”
Fans of the show were understandably upset by the news and took to social media to express their disappointment. Inside Job trended on Twitter, with over 50,000 tweets in just a few hours. The cancellation of Inside Job is a rare move by Netflix, as the company usually doesn’t renew a show and then cancel it. In fact, this isn’t the first time Netflix has done this. In 2020, the streaming giant renewed the popular series GLOW for a final season, only to reverse the decision and cancel the show due to COVID-related production issues.
It’s unclear exactly why Netflix decided to cancel Inside Job, but it’s likely a combination of metrics and cost-cutting. Whatever the reason, fans are understandably disappointed that they won’t get to see the characters of Reagan and Brett get their happy ending and see what was in store for the rest of the series. Inside Job joins the growing list of unfinished series on Netflix, and it’s a reminder of the tumultuous nature of the streaming industry. It’s a tough business, and shows can be cancelled at any time, even if they’ve already been renewed.
