Insatiable, the most controversial show of the year is set to return in 2019. It is an American black comedy-drama web series created by Lauren Gussis starring Dallas Roberts and Debby Ryan, based on the 2014 New York Times article “The Pageant King of Alabama” by Jeff Chu. The first season of Insatiable premiered on Netflix on August 10, 2018. In September 2018, the series was renewed for a second season, which will premiere on October 11, 2019.
The show is centered on 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 newfound attention and popularity to get revenge on those who bullied her for being overweight.
The plot of the second season was still unknown, but Ryan revealed in an interview that she wanted to see her character moving forward, like seeking professional help for some of her problems. Netflix might not also adjust the script of season 2 despite the backlash since it wouldn’t renew it in the first place if they were bothered by it.
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.
On October 1, 2019, Netflix has released a funny trailer along with the short description of the series, “A bullied teenager turns to beauty pageants as a way to exact her revenge, with the help of a disgraced coach who soon realizes he’s in over his head. Grab your tiaras. Insatiable returns October 11, only on Netflix.”
