Insatiable Season 3 Release Date on Netflix
For those who are all waiting for Insatiable Season 3, we are sorry to inform you that Netflix has officially canceled the show in February 2020 after the season 2 premiere. Interestingly, even after the season 2 premiering back in October 2019, Netlfix took more than usual time to decide whether they should greenlight for a season 3 or not. But to many of the fan’s surprise, Netflix confirmed in February 2020 that there wouldn’t be a season 3 for Insatiable.
Soon after the news, Alyssa Milano tweeted her grievance and said she had had many plots to explore, but it won’t be possible anymore. But Milano’s tweet hinted that they could return on another network since the show debuted as a CW original but was canceled after its first season but was saved by Netflix. Thus the second season happened, despite season 1 suffering from significant backlash. Now that Netflix has stopped the support, fans hope there will be some savior for their favorite show.
Backslashes faced by Insatiable
In an interview, Cindy Holland, former head of Netflix’s Original Content, said that the renewal of any show was based on certain things. She said that when they invest in a particular series, they look at the fans’ response. This is for each show streaming on Netflix. This means If a particular series didn’t earn many viewers, they would reconsider whether or not to invest in that particular show. She also said that along with viewership, Netflix also considers the critical acclaim of the show.
So we can assume that the severe backslash that the show had facing may have made Netflix not approve for the third season and follow the path of CW. For those who don’t know, soon after the premiering of the show’s first season, more than 230,000 signatures were collected asking for the show’s cancellation.
Many argued that the show could cause many eating disorders, whereas some say that the show promotes body shaming. When the show was renewed for a third season, Debby Ryan said that societal nick needs to be addressed.
She said that they wanted to convey that one should not feel bad about how one looks. She also clarified that the show is not about body shaming. Instead, they are just depicting it as a social injustice issue. Add to that the bad critical reviews such as scorning only 2.68/10 on Rotten Tomatoes. All this concludes why the show won’t be returning for a third season.
