Netflix's Controversial Series INSATIABLE Renewed For Season 2
Netflix’s dark comedy series Insatiable has been given a Season 2 order. I wasn’t sure if that would happen due to the controversy surrounding the series, but it’s that controversy that most likely boosted it’s ratings and gave it the opportunity to thrive with a second season.
There was even a petition that got over 100,000 signatures demanding that Netflix pull the series. Series creator Lauren Gussis asked people to give the show a chance, though, saying:
“When I was 13, I was suicidal. My best friends dumped me, I was bullied, and I wanted revenge. I thought if I looked pretty on the outside, I’d feel like I was enough. Instead, I developed an eating disorder…and the kind of rage that makes you want to do dark things … please give the show a chance.”
I actually kind of enjoyed the series. The story followed a character named Patty (Debby Ryan), who for years had been bullied, ignored, and underestimated by those around her because of her weight. But when she finds herself suddenly thin, Patty is out for payback against anyone who has ever made her feel bad about herself.”
I can definitely see why people didn’t care for the series or the idea behind it, but the execution of that idea was done really well. I also thought Ryan was great in the series.
The series also co-stars Dallas Roberts, Alyssa Milano, Christopher Gorham, Erinn Westbrook, Michael Provost, Kimmy Shields, Irene Choi, and Sarah Colonna.
