Netflix Cancels Season 2 of Inside Job

By Jessica Lerner 

The adult sci-fi animated sitcom Inside Job has been canceled at Netflix.

Show creator Shion Takeuchi took to Twitter to announce the news: “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 group up. Reagan and Brett deserved to get their happy ending and finally find happiness. And I would have loved to 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,” she continued.


The series premiered in October 2021 and was renewed for a second season in June 2022 ahead of the premiere of the second part of Season 1. The final eight episodes of the show debuted in November 2022.

A lot of conspiracy theories are true in the universe of Inside Job, a workplace comedy. It centers on the American shadow government Cognito, Inc., one of the six global organizations that controls the world. The series follows a team commanded by a tech genius and her new companion, alongside reptile shapeshifters, a human-dolphin hybrid, and a sapient mushroom from hollow Earth.

Inside Job is not the first animated series to be canceled over the last year. The streamer shelved its version of the children’s comic book series Bone in April 2022. A month later in May, it canceled Ava DuVernay’s Wings of Fire, preschool series Antiracist Baby and movie With Kind Regards From Kindergarten. In October 2022, it axed the adult animated comedy Bad Crimes before it even hits our screens.
