Default In defense of Insatiable

Kelly deVos, a self-described fat person who writes about weight issues, said the controversial Netflix drama had some redeeming aspects despite its flaws. "For me, weight-loss arcs like the one featured in Insatiable provide an opportunity to discuss and potentially debunk the cultural myths that surround fatness and weight loss," she says. "We’re continually fed 'Half Their Size' stories and diet-center commercials full of people who transform their whole lives in 30-second spots. This creates the perception that fatness is a problem that must be solved, that fat people need to be 'fixed' in order to lead fulfilling lives. I think Insatiable is relatively successful in tackling that issue. The show is making a real attempt to demonstrate that changing how we look on the outside won’t change how we feel on the inside. Weight loss doesn’t fix Patty Bladell; it breaks her down even more."

"Insatiable" Renewed for Season 2
by Rebecca Iannucci
Sept. 12 2018

Netflix hasn’t had its fill of "Insatiable" just yet: The streaming giant has renewed its Debby Ryan dramedy for a second season.

The series centers on Ryan’s Patty, a formerly overweight teenager who seeks revenge on her onetime bullies by way of the beauty pageant circuit. Alyssa Milano, Dallas Roberts and Christopher Gorham co-star.

Prior to its Aug. 10 debut, "Insatiable" received widespread backlash on social media, with many people criticizing the show’s alleged endorsement of fat-shaming.

Multiple online petitions were launched to stop Netflix from releasing the first season, prompting cast members to defend the series during their press tour.

Upon first glance, the show is something, and I think people really reacted to that,” Milano said during an appearance on GMA ahead of the Season 1 launch.

But when you get deeper into it, it’s about something else, which is what every interaction in our lives is really about.

"Insatiable" is slated to return in 2019.
