Back in June 2022, fans of “Inside Job” were thrilled when Netflix announced it was ordering more episodes of the adult-oriented animated comedy created by “Gravity Falls”/”Regular Show” writer Shion Takeuchi.
The series follows the exploits of Reagan Ridley and her cohorts at Cognito Inc., the deep-state, top-secret organization that operates as a shadow government, responsible for all the world’s conspiracy theories.
Fast-forward to January 2023, with those same fans shocked and angered by Netflix’s subsequent announcement that it was axing plans for a second season, and was instead cancelling the show.
Takeuchi confirmed the news via Twitter, issuing a statement to declare being “heartbroken” over the streamer’s decision to cancel the show.
“Over the years, these characters have become real people to me, and I am devastated not to be able to watch them grow up,” Takeuchi wrote.

The news is not going over well with “Inside Job” fans, judging by this sampling of Twitter response.

It has been officially confirmed that Inside Job has been cancelled by Netflix. A writer had said it was cancelled, but the tweet was deleted, this is official confirmation from the creator themselves
