What Is Inside Job’s Plot About?
Inside Job is a popular animated show on Netflix and is a creation of Shion Takeuchi. The plot follows the story of a top-secret organization in the US. In this world many of our world’s conspiracies are real. This particular world in the show is manipulated by 6 American shadow organizations which are Cognito Inc., the Illuminati, the Atlantians, the Reptoids, the Catholic Church, and the Juggalos. The series focuses on a tech genius, Reagan, and her new partner, with her dysfunctional co-workers at Cognito. Their sole purpose is creating chaos and burying all these world conspiracies with Cognito, a shadow government organization.
On Netflix, the official synopsis of the show suggests: “Lizard people? Real. The moon landing? Fake. Managing the world’s conspiracies is a full-time job for an awkward genius and her dysfunctional co-workers.”
With this cancellation, Inside Job’s cliffhanger will never be finished. It teased more of the stories to come for the show. Fans from social media are assuming that it is quite alarming for the other popular animated shows.
