Creator Shion Takeuchi said that she was “heartbroken” by the decision

After one season, Netflix has cancelled the animated sci-fi comedy Inside Job. Netflix has cancelled many a show before, however this time the announcement has come after previously greenlighting a second season.

The show was the first adult animation series produced in-house by Netflix Animation Studios.

Inside Job comes from the mind of Shion Takeuchi, who was previously a writer for Gravity Falls and Regular Show. The show follows Reagan Ridley, a particularly dysfunctional woman who works for the shadow government – at Cognito Inc. – in a world where conspiracies are real. 

The first season of the show was released in two parts, debuting in October 2021 and November 2022 respectively.

Confirming that Inside Job wouldn’t be returning via Twitter, Takeuchi said that she was “heartbroken” by the decision.

”I’m heartbroken to confirm that Netflix has decided to cancel season 2 of Inside Job,” she wrote.

“Over the years, these characters have become real people to me, and I am devastated not to be able to watch them grow up. 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.

“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.”

The news comes after Netflix renewed Wednesday for a second season, after the show came in as the second most watched English language show, with 1.2 billion hours viewed inside its first 28 days. 

At the end of last year, Netflix announced that Wednesday was one of the most talked about shoes of 2022, alongside titles like Stranger Things and Heartbreak High.
