Amazon’s Brilliant ‘Sneaky Pete’ Gets Season 2 Trailer And March UK Air Date
Amazon’s excellent original series ‘Sneaky Pete‘ returns for its 2nd Season on Amazon Prime in March the company has announced.
The critically acclaimed drama stars Giovanni Ribisi (‘Avatar’) as a con man Marius, who left prison only to find himself hunted by the vicious gangster he once robbed. With nowhere else to turn, he took cover from his past by assuming the identity of his cellmate Pete, “reuniting” with Pete’s estranged family.
In the new season, Marius is on the verge of starting fresh, when two thugs, believing he is Pete, threaten to kill the family unless he takes them to Pete’s estranged mother Maggie (Jane Adams – ‘Twin Peaks’) and the millions she stole from their mysterious employer. Now Marius must tread a dangerous line to find the elusive Maggie, protect the family, and keep up the Pete con, all while finagling a way to ditch the thugs and keep the money for himself.
Created by Bryan Cranston (‘Breaking Bad’) and David Shore (‘House’, ‘The Good Doctor’), ‘Sneaky Pete’ was the second most streamed original scripted series on an opening day when it debuted last year.
“After the tremendous critical and customer reception in its first season, we’re excited to debut another season of Sneaky Pete,” said Sharon Tal Yguado, Head of Scripted Series, Amazon Studios. “Graham and his team have crafted a second season that really raises the stakes for Marius and everyone involved.”
Cranston, Graham Yost (‘The Americans’), James Degus (‘All The Way’), Michael Dinner (‘Electric Dreams’) and Fred Golan (‘Justified’) serve as executive producers. The series also stars Marin Ireland (‘Side Effects’) as Julia Bowman, three-time Emmy winner Margo Martindale (‘The Americans’) as Audrey Bernhardt, Shane McRae (‘Still Alice’) as Taylor Bowman, Libe Barer (‘Parenthood’) as Carly Bowman and Peter Gerety (‘Prime Suspect’) as Otto Bernhardt.
If you haven’t got yourself an Amazon Prime subscription yet, ‘Sneaky Pete’ along with the ‘Marvellous Mrs Masiel’ and ‘The Man In The High Castle’ are well worth the subscription alone. Not to mention premiere episodes of ‘Lucifer’, ‘The Grand Tour’, ‘Outlander’, and a whole bunch of other shows! You can find out more about Amazon Prime here.
‘Sneaky Pete‘ Season 2 comes to Amazon Prime UK on Friday, 9th March 2018, when all episodes will be available to stream.
