Nothing about Insatiable seemed to be working for the show, where the series was received with a lot of criticism even though it seemingly scored decent viewership on Netflix.
Having had a second season, things seemed to be working well but that has now turned out to be short-lived.
Netflix confirmed that Insatiable has been canceled after two seasons. It was done following a tweet from castmember Alyssa Milano, who responded to a question about the show's future with, "We will not be coming back, sadly."
The series stirred up controversy in its first season over its portrayal of a formerly overweight girl (Debby Ryan) who loses 70 pounds and becomes a pageant queen who exacts vengeance on people who have wronged her. The second season, which debuted in October 2019, arrived much more quietly. Even Milano's tweet about the cancellation slipped under the radar for more than a week before Netflix confirmed the show's end.
Creator Lauren Gussis told The Hollywood Reporter that she based the series in part on her own experience and used the radical weight loss for Ryan's character to comment on the trope of thin equaling popular.
"I wanted to tell in theory a story where the characters' desires are deeply rooted in real human emotion, but the things that happen are so crazy that it's less scary to have a conversation when you know you're in a world that isn't quite reality," she said.
