Netflix has canceled another show after just one season. Animated sci-fi comedy Inside Job, which was released in two parts across 2021 and 2022, has been axed at the streamer – and the show’s creator has revealed their "heartbroken" response to the news.

Taking to Twitter, Shion Takeuchi said, "I am heartbroken to confirm that Netflix has decided to cancel season 2 of Inside Job. Over the years, these characters have become real people to me, and I am devastated not to be able to watch them grow up."

"To everyone who watched, thank you for coming along for the ride. Even though I’m sad, it helps to know that there’s people out there who cared just as much about these characters as me." You can read the full statement below.
