Netflix Renews Controversial Original Series, Insatiable, For Season 2

Netflix is not letting the haters get them down. The streaming service has renewed it's controversial dark comedy, Insatiable for a second season.

Billed as "a coming-of-rage story," Insatiable tells the story of Patty (played by Debby Ryan) an overweight high school student who was bullied for her weight. After losing weight as a result of a physical altercation, Patty decides to get revenge on those who emotionally tortured her by becoming a beauty queen. Along Patty's journey we meet lawyer/beauty pageant coach Bob (Dallas Roberts); his wife, Coralee (Charmed alum, Alyssa Milano); and their son, Brick (Michael Provost), among others.

Since the release of its trailer, the show has met a wave of backlash for several reasons but is largely drawing criticism for the fat-shaming premise the series is built on. However, Ryan, Milano, and creator Lauren Gussis have all stood by the series, with Gussis noting that the storylines in the show are from her own personal experiences. Insatiable is set to return to Netflix in 2019.
