Netflix has scrapped Inside Job despite previously ordering a renewal with season 2. The conspiracy theory comedy show originally debuted its first season in two parts, with promises of a second season on the way. However, series creator Shion Takeuchi confirmed on Twitter that Netflix decided to reverse its decision and has cancelled the show after one season – a scary trend which seems to be getting worse on the streaming service.
Netflix recently announced that it would be canning a number of shows including The Midnight Club, 1899, Warrior Nun and more. Inside Job now joins the list of shows that were unceremoniously canned before they could progress their story. The animated series was known for its crude humour, conspiracy theory subplots and upbeat characters.
Takeuchi took to Twitter to drop the sad news of Inside Job‘s cancellation, stating:
“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. Reagan and Brett deserved to get their ending and finally find happiness. And I would have loved to [have] been able to share what was in store with you all. To everyone who watched, thank you for coming along on the ride. Even though I’m sad, it helps to know that there’s people out there who cared just as much about these characters as me.”
Inside Job followed the story of Reagan Ridley (voiced by Lizzy Caplan), a tech genius working for a shadowy government organisation that tackles the world’s conspiracies. The rest of the cast included Clarke Duke, Christian Slater, Brett Gelman, Andrew Daly, Bobby Lee, Tisha Campbell, John DiMaggio, Chris Diamantopoulos, and Adam Scott.
The first season’s two parts are still currently available to watch on Netflix.
