Season 2 Cancellation Announced: January 8, 2023

Inside Job was originally renewed for a second season by Netflix. However, the streaming service decided to reverse their renewal decision.

Shion Takeuchi, the show’s creator, confirmed the news. “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,” Shion tweeted.

We have been working collaboratively with the producers since last year to help the series find a new home where fans can continue to enjoy the compelling story and exceptional visual experience.
