Amazon Prime’s original series Sneaky Pete will return for a second season on Friday, March 9, 2018. Season two of the drama created by Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and David Shore (The Good Doctor) will consist of 10 new episodes.
The season two cast is led by Emmy nominee Giovanni Ribisi and includes 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. Graham Yost, Bryan Cranston, James Degus (All The Way), Michael Dinner, and Fred Golan (Justified) are the drama’s executive producers.
Season one ranked as the “second most streamed original scripted series on an opening day,” according to Amazon. The full first season is currently available for binge-watching on Amazon Prime.
“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.”
The Plot: The critically acclaimed Prime Original, a co-production with Sony Pictures Television Studios, revolves around a con man, Marius (Giovanni Ribisi) 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) 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.
