Amazon Renews ‘Sneaky Pete’ for Season Two

Pick-Up Comes Less Than One week After Premiering

Crime drama “Sneaky Pete,” which premiered on Jan. 13, has been renewed for a second season. The series, which follows Marius Josipovic (Giovanni Ribisi), a released convict who adopts the identity of his cell mate in order to avoid his past life, was the second most streamed original scripted series on an opening day on Amazon, behind “The Man in the High Castle.” “Sneaky Pete” was co-created and is executive produced by “Breaking Bad” star Bryan Cranston, and executive produced by Graham Yost (“The Americans”).

The series also features Marin Ireland (“Side Effects”), Peter Gerety (“Prime Suspect”), Libe Barer (“Parenthood”), Shane McRae (“Still Alice”), Michael Drayer (“Mr. Robot”), and Margo Martindale (“The Americans”). “Sneaky Pete” is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television and is now available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.

“Bryan Cranston and Graham Yost have done a masterful job of steering the cast to fantastic performances,” said Joe Lewis, Head of Comedy and Drama, Amazon Studios. “Both the critical response and our customers’ engagement with the series are key factors in our enthusiasm to bring our audience a second season of Sneaky Pete.”
