Netflix appears to be teaching its customers that they should never invest in the original content. Over the past year, we’ve seen a huge number of critically acclaimed shows where beloved fan bases have been given the axe: 1899, Blockbuster, Warrior Nun, The Midnight Club, The Imperfects, Archive 81, and A different life (among many, many others) were killed long before their time.
Now it’s time for the Netflix gravedigger to carve another stone as an animated sitcom inside job won’t get a second season now. The show is from gravity falls Writer Shion Takeuchi who boasted Bojack rider‘s Mike Hollingsworth as executive producer and had a murderous concept about a shadowy government organization that ensures conspiracy theories are kept secret.
Despite being confirmed for a second season in June 2022, Netflix has now decided it won’t go ahead after all. Takeuchi confirmed the sad news on Twitter:
Fans are not happy:
Is it really worth investing in a Netflix original at this point?
Is it any wonder they are losing subscribers?
Maybe another network could pick it up?
And ends with a cliffhanger? Ouch.
No one knows the dark math behind why Netflix decided to lower the gavel, despite tightening the belt at the streaming giant in the face of stiff competition from Amazon Prime Video and Disney Plus. This can mean that shows they have rolled on in the past are no longer economical for them.
But surely cold hard numbers are only part of the equation and the misery these shows create will cost them in the long run? It’s particularly grim in inside job‘s case as a second season was confirmed and work on the new episodes was believed to be in full swing.
Alright, let’s add it to the ever-growing graveyard of Netflix shows killed before their time.
inside job, REST IN PEACE.
