Netflix Cancels Inside Job After One Season IGN
Netflix animated comedy Inside Job has been cancelled after just one season despite an earlier announcement that Season Two was on the cards.

Animated comedy Inside Job has been cancelled by Netflix after just one season.

According to the show’s creator, Shion Takeuchi, the online streamer has cancelled the show’s upcoming second season.

“I’m heartbroken to confirm that Netflix has decided to cancel Season 2 of Inside Job,” she said on Twitter. “Over the years, these characters have become real people to me, and I am devastated not to be able to watch them grow up.”

I’m sorry guys, it’s true.????#insidejob

Inside Job tells the story of Cognito Inc employees Reagan Ridley (Lizzy Caplan) and Brett Hand (Clark Duke), a duo who works for a shadow government agency in a world where conspiracy theories are real.

“Reagan and Brett deserved to get their ending and finally find happiness. And I would have loved to been able to share what was in store with you all,” added Takeuchi. “To everyone who watched, thank you for coming along on the ride. Even though I’m sad, it helps to now that there’s people out there who cared just as much about these characters as me.”

Takeuchi previously served as a writer on Gravity Falls as well as other animated projects such as Regular Show and Disenchantment. She also served as a story artist on the Pixar movies, Monsters University and Inside Out.

The new of Inside Job’s cancellation comes just months after it was initially renewed for a second season back in June 2022.

The Best Animated TV Series of 2022

We hope we shouldn't have to say this here in 2022, but animation needs to be taken seriously in entertainment; just look at the crop of some of the year's best as even more evidence of that.<br><br>

It also serves as further proof that animation isn't just for kids, as much of this year's nominees are aimed squarely at adults. Harley Quinn delivered more raunch and violence, The Legend of Vox Machina did the same in its recreation of a Dungeons & Dragons campaign, Rick & Morty continued their wild adventures through the galaxy, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners built on the seedy world of Night City, and Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi gave us more insight into some of The Clone Wars' most important characters.<br><Br>

These are our nominees for the Best Animated TV Series in 2022...

IGN’s Inside Job Season One review gave it 7/10 and said: “Inside Job offers likable characters and a world full of creatures and secret societies. Its character-focused story gets a little carried away with constant pop-culture references, though, and an indecisive approach to conspiracies.”
