The animated comedy's renewal has been reversed.
January 9, 2023
Word is out that Netflix has cancelled Inside Job, reversing the renewal it handed out last June. The news comes less than two months after the animated comedy wrapped its 18-episode freshman run, which was split into two parts that released roughly a year apart.
Series creator Shion Takeuchi informed her followers of the cancellation on Twitter, saying she was heartbroken the story will go unfinished.
The half-hour series follows Reagan Ridley, an anti-social tech genius working at Cognito Inc., aka the Deep State, where conspiracies aren't just theories — they're fact. She wants to make a difference in the world, but it gets tricky when dealing with convoluted coverups and secret societies; not to mention her unhinged father and irresponsible coworkers.
Last time I check there weren’t any gay characters in the show. Also, why does the show have to be realistic, they work for the Deep State for god’s sake! Besides, even in real life that is not always the case. It all just depends on the person.
Too bad, I thought they had a creative idea and an interesting collection of seriously dysfunctional characters. Maybe the story hit too close to home for Netflix execs...
Hahaha. I still do! :D
Your insight perfect. However it is hard for people to delay gratification and just volume up a season or two of a show before watching it.
This show was difficult for me. I made it five minutes. It is hard to watch animation. and then they threw in the obligatory gay coworker. Do writers actually realize it takes years for your gay coworkers and friends to finally trust you and reveal? Stop doing it in under 5 minutes.
I wonder what happened, though? I know that shows getting cancelled after initially being renewed happens occasionally, but if it was renewed a whole six months ago the next season must have already been fairly deep into production, so cancelling it seems like throwing away an investment; is Netflix in some serious trouble behind the scenes?
