In the 1-minute, 53-second video, which you can view above, Debby Ryan returns as Patty, a binge-eating beauty queen who committed murder (in self defense, maybe?) on the Season 1 finale and is now apparently a suspect. But she’s still pretty and, as Magnolia points out in the trailer, “you can get away with a lot when you’re hot.”
Though we’re not sure she’s gotten her rage, over-eating or body image issues under control just yet. In fact, all of the above might have just gotten worse.
Here’s the official description for the second season: In season two of “Insatiable” we find Patty dealing with, well, a lot. Her past is haunting her, and her struggle to be “good” is becoming harder and harder each day as she battles her inner demons. And Bob (Dallas Roberts) – well – he’s helping her cover up Christian’s murder, but just how far will his loyalties go? Will he continue to allow his romantic relationships, his career ambitions, and his integrity to take a beating, just to help Patty pursue her pageant dreams? And when beauty queens start going missing, who’s to blame? Patty’s rage? Or is there more at play?
“Insatiable” was renewed for Season 2 last September, a month after its first season launched on Netflix.
Before it had even premiered, the show received criticism on social media, with some users calling it “toxic” for putting Ryan in a fat suit. A Change.org petition was even started to try to get the series canceled before it debuted. Both Ryan and co-star Alyssa Milano have defended “Insatiable,” with Ryan saying series creator Lauren Gussis didn’t want to use the fat suit if it tipped towards making fun and Milano noting, “we are addressing [through comedy] the damage that occurs from fat shaming.”
“Insatiable” Season 2 launches Oct. 11 on Netflix.
