Netflix drama Insatiable renewed for a second series


Controversial Netflix drama Insatiable has been renewed for a second season.

Its first series caused a lot of debate after viewers accused it of fat shaming, but on Wednesday it was confirmed it will return in 2019.

The show is centred around Patty (Debby Ryan) a bullied teen who seeks revenge after losing weight.

Netflix’s decision to renew the revenge comedy has been met with a mixed reaction on social media.

The show has previously been labelled as a satire by its makers but was criticised for its handling of sensitive topics like fat shaming and eating disorders.

It has also been accused of reinforcing views that girls and women need to be thin in order to succeed in life.

Some believe it has been renewed because of “hate watching” – where people watch a show despite not liking it or to see what the fuss is about, which nonetheless contributes to viewing figures.
