Shortly after the third season of Sneaky Pete premiere on Amazon Prime, the studio bosses decided to pull the plug on this beloved show. The critically acclaimed crime drama has been officially canceled after three amazing seasons.
Sneaky Pete tells the story of a con man, who assumes the identity of his cellmate after being released from prison, in an attempt to escape a vicious gangster. Reuniting with his estranged family threatens to drag him into a world just as dangerous as the one he’s trying to run away from.
This series was created by Bryan Cranston and David Shore, and it premiered on Amazon Prime in 2017. Giovanni Ribisi played the titular role, and he had amazing support in Shane McRae, Marin Ireland, and Margo Martindale.
Sneaky Pete originated as a CBS pilot, but Amazon recognized its potential after this network didn’t pick it up. It’s proven to be a good choice and the show was constantly met with critical acclaim throughout its three-season run.
