Riverdale's Camila Mendes & Lili Reinhart Reveal Hilarious Napoleon Dynamite Halloween Costumes
Camila Mendes and Lili Reinhart channeled the 2000s for hilarious joint Halloween costumes.

Netflix's Controversial Series Insatiable Renewed For Season 2

Netflix’s dark comedy series Insatiable has been given a Season 2 order. I wasn’t sure if that would happen due to the controversy surrounding the series, but it’s that controversy that most likely boosted it’s ratings and gave it the opportunity to thrive with a second season.

There was even a petition that got over 100,000 signatures demanding that Netflix pull the series. Series creator Lauren Gussis asked people to give the show a chance, though, saying:

“When I was 13, I was suicidal. My best friends dumped me, I was bullied, and I wanted revenge. I thought if I looked pretty on the outside, I’d feel like I was enough. Instead, I developed an eating disorder…and the kind of rage that makes you want to do dark things … please give the show a chance.”

I actually kind of enjoyed the series. The story followed a character

‘Insatiable’ Is Back For More — Netflix Is Giving The Massively Polarizing Series A Second Season

Netflix has renewed one of its most controversial series, giving Insatiable -- which was almost universally panned by critics and viewers alike -- a second season that will air in 2019.

Insatiable, which premiered last month, stars Disney Channel alum Debby Ryan as Patty, a formerly fat high schooler who drops an eyebrow-raising amount of weight in just one summer due to a broken jaw and liquid diet. The series kicks off when Patty catches the attention of a teen beauty pageant coach (Dallas Roberts) whose career was sunk by accusations that he molested one of his charges.

Netflix faced accusations of fat-shaming as soon as the series’ first trailer went live, including a Change.org petition calling for Insatiable’s cancellation that garnered 230,000 signatures prior to the series' premiere. It evidently wasn’t enough to change Netflix’s mind — though apparently neither was the swath of negative reviews for Insatiable.

Netflix is not letting the haters get it down. The streaming service has renewed its 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.

‘Insatiable’ Renewed For Season 2 By Netflix

  • Deadline
Netflix has ordered a second season of its series Insatiable, from creator Lauren Gussis and CBS TV Studios. The dark, twisted revenge comedy starring Debby Ryan, Dallas Roberts, and Alyssa Milano, will return in 2019.

Like Netflix’s drama series 13 Reasons Why, Insatiable has attracted both strong viewership — judging by available streaming data — and controversy. 13 Reasons Why, which had been criticized for its depiction of teen suicide, bullying, drunk driving and rape, was recently renewed for a third season. Similarly, Insatiable, which was accused of “body-shaming,” has landed a second season.

Insatiable, which started as a 2017 CW pilot before landing a Netflix series order, centers on Patty (Ryan). For years, she 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

Debby Ryan Didn’t Want Her ‘Insatiable’ Fat Suit to Be ‘Done in Parody like in ‘Friends”

  • The Wrap
Debby Ryan Didn’t Want Her ‘Insatiable’ Fat Suit to Be ‘Done in Parody like in ‘Friends”
Debby Ryan wasn’t too crazy about wearing a fat suit in the new Netflix series “Insatiable,” afraid, like critics, that it would be done in a way that made fun of people whose bodies don’t fit the commercialized idea of beauty.

In a recent interview with Teen Vogue, Ryan said that she was afraid “it would almost be done in parody like in ‘Friends'” — referring to flashback scenes in the NBC sitcom that portray Monica (Courteney Cox) in a fat suit. The actress said that she and executive producer Lauren Gussis didn’t want to use the fat suit if it tipped towards making fun.

“There was a point where Lauren and I are like, If at any point this is funny, if at any point people laugh, we’re not doing it. We’re not doing the show that we’re trying to do. We’re

Alyssa Milano Stands by Netflix's Insatiable: "These Issues Are Better in the Open"

  • Popsugar
Netflix's new series Insatiable has been under fire since the release of the show's trailer a few weeks ago. The "coming of rage story" sees slender Disney actress Debby Ryan slipping into a fat suit in the first episode to play Patty, an overweight teenager whose classmates ridicule her weight and appearance. When Patty loses the weight as a result of having her jaw wired shut (after she's punched by a homeless man trying to steal her candy bar . . . ), she decides to get revenge on everyone who's done her wrong. The black comedy has been met with backlash for several reasons but is largely drawing criticism for the fat-shaming premise the series is built on.

Charmed alum Alyssa Milano stars in the series as the social-climbing wife of a beauty pageant coach and has spoken out about the controversy a few times. Amid the first wave of negative reactions to the trailer,

‘Insatiable’ Star Debby Ryan Defends Show’s Controversial Use of a Fatsuit, Comparing it to ‘Friends’

  • Indiewire
It would be putting it mildly to say that “Insatiable” has not been well received, as the Netflix drama about fat-shaming has been accused of doing what it’s ostensibly criticizing. One aspect of the show that’s received particular criticism is its use of a fatsuit in flashback scenes, something that star Debby Ryan said she was initially hesitant about — and didn’t want to come across like it did in “Friends.”

“We knew that this conversation needed to be had. We knew that this societal brokenness needed to be addressed, but we didn’t know how badly it needed to be addressed,” Ryan says in an interview with Teen Vogue, her first about the polarizing series. “My friend, a few days before the trailer hit, in reference to something else, said, ‘The size of the reaction is the size of the wound,’ and it stayed with me.”

As for the fatsuit,
