Sneaky Pete Canceled by Amazon After Three Seasons

Joseph Baxter Jun 5, 2019

Despite being touted as an impressive streaming performer, Sneaky Pete has been given the axe from Amazon.

Sneaky Pete was unable to grift itself another season on Amazon Prime Video, which has canceled the series.

The series, the co-creation of Bryan Cranston and David Shore, launched on the streaming platform on August 7, 2015. It starred Giovanni Ribisi as Marius Josipovic, a smart, seedy con man who, initially upon his release from prison, dodges a debt to a dangerous gangster (Cranston) by posing as his cellmate, Pete Murphy, using all the stories he’s been told to ingratiate himself to the Bernhardts, Pete’s long-estranged Connecticut-based family, who run a bail bonds business. However, as we witness over the course of three seasons, Marius/Pete instinctually grifts his way out of problems; a practice that’s usually successful, but tends to spawn more problems and compounds others.
