Despite early controversy, Netflix orders second helping of ‘Insatiable’


Netflix/Tina Rowden(NEW YORK) -- Netflix has renewed its dark comedy Insatiable for a second season.

The streaming service shared the announcement on Twitter Wednesday, along with a graphic that reads, "AND NOW FOR THE SECOND COMING."

The series, about a lawyer-turned-beauty pageant coach who takes on a vengeful, bullied teenager as his client -- played by Dallas Roberts and Debby Ryan, respectively -- generated controversy from people who accused it of body shaming.

Insatiable -- also starring Alyssa Milano, Christopher Gorham, Erinn Westbrook, Michael Provost, Kimmy Shields, Irene Choi, and Sarah Colonna -- returns in 2019.
