Insatiable won’t be returning for a third season, as it looks like Netflix’s appetite for the controversial revenge comedy show has been satiated.
Looks like another Netflix show has fallen prey to the streamer’s three-seasons-or-under policy for new shows.
The streamer confirmed on Friday that Insatiable wouldn’t be back for a third season. The news didn’t come as a surprise to many fans of the show as star Alyssa Milano confirmed as such to a fan over Twitter a few months ago.
Insatiable centered on Patty, who for years had been bullied, ignored, and underestimated by those around her because of her weight. However, when she found herself suddenly thin, Patty went out to exact revenge against anyone who had ever made her feel bad about herself.
Even before the show debuted, its premise and previews generated controversy online due to its alleged fat-shaming and body-negativity storylines. Despite the season 1 controversy, the buzz generated enough viewers for Netflix to greenlight a second season. That second season debuted in October of 2019, nearly a year after the first season. However, there was radio silence from the streamer about the possibility of a third season — until now, that is.
Insatiable starred Debby Ryan as Patty Bladell, the newly thin high school student who sought revenge on her former bullies by becoming a pageant queen. Joining her on dark comedy show were Dallas Roberts (The Good Wife) as Bob Armstrong Jr., Christopher Gorham (Covert Affairs) as Bob Barnard, Sarah Colonna (Shameless) as Angie Bladell, Erinn Westbrook (Awkward) as Magnolia Barnard, Kimmy Shields (Big Little Lies) as Nonnie Thompson, Michael Provost (All Rise) as Brick Armstrong, Irene Choi (Community) as Dixie Sinclair, Arden Myrin (Mad TV) as Regina Sinclair and Alyssa Milano (Charmed) as Coralee Huggins-Armstrong.
Insatiable initially started as a 2017 CW pilot before landing a Netflix series order, and was created by Lauren Gussis, who also executive produced along with Ryan Seacrest, Nina Wass, Andrea Shay, Todd Hoffman and Dennis Kim.
