Insatiable renewed for second season on Netflix
The Hollywood Reporter brings word that the Netflix revenge-comedy Insatiable will be getting a second season on Netflix. This is despite (or maybe because of) the backlash that arose out of the first season, which people accused of everything from body-shaming to promoting a toxic diet culture.
Insatiable is a dark, twisted “coming of rage” story starring Debby Ryan, Dallas Roberts, and Alyssa Milano. For years, Patty (Ryan) has been bullied, ignored, and underestimated by those around her because of her weight. But now that she finds herself suddenly thin, Patty is out for payback against anyone who has ever made her feel bad about herself.
Bob Armstrong (Dallas Roberts), a disgraced attorney whose true passion is coaching beauty pageant contestant, is the only one who sees Patty’s potential, and takes her under his wing — first as a legal client, and then as a pageant contestant whom he coaches toward becoming the top pageant queen in the country. But Bob and his wife Coralee (Alyssa Milano) have no idea how deep Patty’s rage goes, or how far she will go to exact revenge on anyone who has ever wronged her. Bullies beware: payback’s a bitch, revenge is sweet, and if you cross Patty, you’ll be her next treat.
Insatiable stars Debby Ryan (Jessie), Dallas Roberts (Dallas Buyers Club), Alyssa Milano (Mistresses), Christopher Gorman (2 Broke Girls), Erinn Westbrook (In a World), Michael Provost (Elbow Grease), Kimmy Shields (Girlboss), Irene Choi (The Perfect Guy), Sarah Colonna (Has Anyone Seen My Pants?),
The series was created by Lauren Gussis (Dexter) for Netflix. Gussis will also executive produce the series alongside Ryan Seacrest (American Idol), Nina Wass (Shades of Blue), Andrea Shay (Benched), Todd Hoffman (The Confirmation), Dennis Kim (APB), and Andy Fleming (Barefoot).
