Netflix is still getting rid of things. After canceling several shows at the end of 2022, like Midnight Club, Blockbuster, Warrior Nun, and Fate: The Winx Saga, the streaming service has changed its mind and decided to cancel the animated conspiracy theory comedy Inside Job.
The show had already been picked up for a second season, but the creator Shion Takeuchi said on social media Sunday night that it won’t happen. EW asked a Netflix representative for comment.
Takeuchi wrote on Twitter, “I’m heartbroken to confirm that Netflix has decided to cancel season 2 of Inside Job,” “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 [have] been able to share what was in a store with you all.”
Inside Job is about a team that doesn’t work well together at Cognito Inc., a part of the shadow government that deals with the conspiracies of the world. Reagan Ridley, a tech genius who doesn’t like people, was voiced by Lizzy Caplan, and D.C. yes-man Brett Hand was said by Clark Duke.
“To everyone who watched, thank you for coming along on the ride,” Takeuchi said next. “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.”
Outside of Netflix, animated projects have been getting hit everywhere. Warner Bros. Discovery said it would pull many of these titles from HBO Max, including the cult favorite Infinity Train and kid shows like OK K.O.! — Let’s Be Heroes. Last year, Netflix was going to eliminate the animated shows Q-Force and The Midnight Gospel.
