Netflix has established itself as a leader in the adult animated comedy genre, with hits such as “Big Mouth” and “BoJack Horseman.”
Over the last few months, the streaming service has introduced a slew of new shows, including “Adventure Beast,” “Q-Force,” “Chicago Party Aunt,” and the fifth season of “Big Mouth.”
‘Inside Job,' an animated comedy series by Alex Hirsch, is the latest in a long line of adult animated shows to launch on the streaming service. Fans are looking forward to the release of Season 1, Part 2, in the coming weeks.
The Netflix original series “Inside Job” has proven to be a popular choice among viewers.
The series is a significant achievement for Netflix, as it is the streaming service's first adult animated series to be produced in-house at Netflix Animation Studios (via Netflix).
Following its premiere on October 22, the animated series has received positive reviews from critics.
It is described as “emotionally insightful and sincere, and entirely nutty in a free-associative way, But it works” in the San Francisco Chronicle's review and “it works” in the New York Times review.
Fan anticipation for Part 2 has already begun, even though the series has just recently premiered Part 1 of its first season. Listed here is everything we know about “Inside Job” Part 2, including the release date, the cast, and the story.
Is There a Set Date for the Publication of Inside Job Part 2?
While Netflix has not formally announced the second season of “Inside Job,” it is expected to premiere shortly.
However, because The Hollywood Reporter reported in 2019 that the original series order included 20 episodes, we now know that Part 2 is on the way.
A quick look at the show's Netflix page reveals that only ten episodes were released on the streaming service on October 22 and that they were classified as Part 1 rather than the typical Season 1 release. According to this classification, the next ten episodes will be released soon.
There is a lot of speculation about when “Inside Job” Part 2 will be released, which is understandable.
Season 1, Part 1 of the animated fantasy series premiered in July, and the release date for Season 2, Part 2 was revealed in early October (via Deadline), more than a month before the release date.
In light of the initial order for 20 episodes, there is a possibility that Netflix will not reveal Part 2 until a few months or weeks before the show's release. It's the same with the video game “Masters of the Universe: Revelation.”
Using the term “parts” rather than “seasons” in the branding raises a few problems. Netflix broadcast the last season of “Bojack Horseman” (via IMDb) in two parts that were released only a few months apart but are displayed on the streaming service as a single season.
According to the show's Netflix page, the Matt Groening series “Disenchantment,” which is similar to “Inside Job,” divides its seasons into “parts” and distributes each installment one year after the previous installment.
When everything is considered, Netflix will likely release “Inside Job” Part 2 within the next year, assuming there are no significant production delays on the remaining 10 episodes.
Who is the Cast of Inside Job: Part 2?
Many voice performers from the first installment of “Inside Job” will return for the second installment.
This cast includes Lizzy Caplan as Reagan Ridley, “Mr. Robot” alum Christian Slater as Randy Ridley, Clark Duke as Brett Hand, Tisha Campbell as Gigi Thompson, Andrew Daly as J.R. Scheimpough, Chris Diamantopoulos as Robotus, John DiMaggio as Glenn Dolphman, Bobby Lee as Dr. Andre, and Brett Gelman as Magic Myc. The show is directed by Chris Diamantopoulos (via IMDb).
We may also anticipate the return of a large number of additional characters, including “Inside Job” executive producer Alex Hirsch, who has voiced various characters, including Grassy Noel Atkinson (according to IMDb), and recurrent actors Ron Funches and Suzy Nakamura.
It is currently unknown whether or not any new characters will be introduced in Part 2, but it would not be unusual if they did.
Perhaps a member of Hirsch's hit television series “Gravity Falls” will make a cameo appearance; the show's cast includes actors such as Jason Ritter, Kris Schaal, and Linda Cardellini.
What Will the Plot of Inside Job Part 2 Be Like?
A top-secret government agency known as Cognito Inc. serves as the setting for “Inside Job,” according to a Netflix statement from June 2021 announcing the company's upcoming roster of adult animation shows.
Employees of this government organization are well aware that any conspiracy theories are, in fact, correct.
While Reagan (Lizzy Caplan) and Randy Ridley (Christian Slater), Brett Hand (Clark Duke), and Gigi (Tisha Campbell) are among the series' characters, the series focuses on a group of employees who do everything they can to keep the world from discovering that the conspiracies they believe are just theories are true.
In the first ten episodes, Reagan finally follows in her father's footsteps and achieves the promotion at Cognito Inc. that she has wished for all her life.
Unfortunately, she will have to share her new position with Brett, a stuffed shirt from the corporate world with a good heart (via The Hollywood Reporter).
Towards the end of Part 1, there is an arc centered on Regan and her co-workers tracking down a mole in the agency that has produced a security breach that jeopardizes the company. Part 2 continues the arc (via Inverse).
Reagan goes inside her mind to explore her chaotic childhood memories to recover a forgotten password after the last episode.
Considering how the first episode ended on a cliffhanger, it's likely that Part 2 will begin right where it left off, with Randy being reinstalled as CEO of Cognito Inc. by the clandestine Robe council.
