Is it possible that an Insatiable season 2 renewal takes place at Netflix over the coming months? In wake of the series’ release on Friday, this definitely feels like the perfect time to engage in that discussion!
Let’s kick things off by saying this — of course, the subject matter of the series is polarizing. It’s a dark comedy that is meant to be about revenge and high-school clichés, but some lines in the trailer have led to major backlash about various definitions of beauty. The reviews for the series so far have been fairly mixed, which isn’t altogether a surprise given the criticism that was already out there. Yet, this series also has a soapy quality to it that could help to it building an audience over time — it’s the perfect Netflix show in that once you get a couple of episodes into the story, there’s a good chance that you are going to stick around and see the story through to the very end.
Now, let’s circle back and touch on the concept of season 2 once more. Do we think that it could actually happen? Well, at the moment we’re willing to say yes even in spite of the controversy. Netflix doesn’t really care about any anger or frustration. First and foremost, their desire is just to ensure that they have people who are watching their shows from start to finish — if there are enough viewers who finish the season, that’s what matters most to them. That’s the sort of thing that has kept another fairly controversial show in 13 Reasons Why on the air. If there are a lot of viewers binge-watching quickly, and a lot of those viewers make it to the end of the season, that’s probably enough to ensure that Insatiable comes back for another run.
