The most controversial show of the year is set to return in 2019. After Netflix confirmed the renewal of Insatiable there was a very mixed reaction. For fans of the show excited for its return, here is everything we know so far about Season 2 of Insatiable.
Insatiable is an American black comedy-drama series created by Lauren Gussis. The show is centered around teenager Patty Bladwell. After an incident with a bully, her jaw is wired shut and Patty is forced to go on a liquid diet over summer vacation. When she returns to school everyone is shocked to see the amount of weight Patty has lost. Patty plans to use her new found attention and popularity to get revenge on those who bullied her for being overweight.
The premise of the show was rife in controversy after a backlash on Twitter accused the show of fat shaming. The backlash could have potentially resulted in the removal of the show before it even aired, but arguably the controversy only caused more people to tune in. There are some who are still campaigning against Insatiable, but for the foreseeable future, we will be seeing Patty on our screens again.
Season 1 Recap
After being bullied for being overweight, Patty returned to school after three-month liquid diet. Shocked at the amount of weight she lost her fellow students gave her a new found amount of attention. Patty is then convinced by former pageant coach Bob Armstrong to enter beauty pageants.
Throughout the season Patty attempts to get revenge on those that bullied her while also competing in the beauty pageants. Patty continuously finds herself in more and more controversial situations. This culminates at the end of the season with Patty killing her stalker and former boyfriend Christian. After Bob and Patty attempt to hide the body in a car they push in a lake, it fails to sink. The season ends with Patty confessing to Bob that she thinks she may have killed Stella Rose.
What Should We Expect To See In Season 2?
Expect a lot more controversy from Patty’s escapades as it will be revealed whether or not she killed Stella Rose. The car with Christian’s body also failed to sink, so Christian’s body could be found by the police and a murder investigation could begin. Psychologically we can expect this to impact Patty dramatically, so we could see a very vulnerable Patty for season two.
After all the trouble she found herself involved in with the beauty pageants it’s also possible Patty may quit the circuit.
How Has The Reaction Been To The Renewal?
It is safe to say it has been a very mixed reaction. There are many that are majorly excited for Season 2.

While there are others who still aren’t impressed.
Still fat-suiting it up over on the renewed-for-season-2 @insatiable_ where fat suit wearing girl gets her jaw wired shut and it makes her lose weight and become “hot.” Garbage.

So you’re telling me #Insatiable (that garbage dumb of fatphobic & stereotypical storylines) was renewed for season 2 and #Timeless (a fun, smart, and diverse story that says no to stereotypes) is still fighting tooth and nail for the POSSIBILITY of another season? pic.twitter.com/tEUXpv6dSM
