The service walked back a previous decision to greenlight the season.
Netflix’s Inside Job is an animated comedy series about a group of employees working for a company that secretly controls the entire world. The second part of the first season was released back in November and was well-received, placing on Netflix’s top ten shows the week it released. However, in spite of the show’s positive reception and fanbase, it seems it couldn’t dodge the Netflix axe.
Inside Job creator and writer Shion Takeuchi announced on Twitter over the weekend that the show’s second season had been cancelled by Netflix. “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 been able to share what was in store with you all.”

“To everyone who watched, thank you for coming along on the ride. 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.”
Strangely, rather than an outright cancellation, this is actually a walk-back of a previous decision. Netflix announced that the show would be getting its second season back in June of 2022. Netflix has not given any reason for the walk-back, but fans have been demanding answers on Twitter.
