MANILA, Philippines – Netflix has axed dark revenge comedy series Insatiable after two seasons, US entertainment sites Variety and Deadline reported.

Insatiable co-star Alyssa Milano confirmed the cancellation on Twitter on Saturday, February 15, calling the news "sadly true."

This is sadly true. We had the most fun creating this show. I want to thank the fans who gave us a shot and kept coming back for more. Season 1 & 2 are still streaming. P.S. Any thoughts on who was Coralee’s baby daddy? I guess we will never know. #Insatiable https://t.co/iM9qzTgxDl — Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) February 14, 2020

We will not be coming back, sadly. — Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) February 4, 2020

Insatiable centered around Patty (Debby Ryan), who after years of being bullied for her weight, suddenly sheds the pounds and seeks revenge against everyone who ridiculed her. With her newfound confidence, the vengeful Patty enters the catty world of pageantry with the help of disgraced attorney Bob Armstrong (Dallas Roberts). 

Created by Lauren Gusssis (Dexter), the "controversial" series has been called out for its premise of "fat-shaming" and putting the world of pageantry in a negative light.  

Insatiable's first season premiered on Netflix in August 2018. Its second season followed in October 2019, where the Philippines' first 1969 Miss Universe Gloria Diaz landed a guest star role. – Rappler.com
