Amazon’s highly-acclaimed Amazon Original “Series Sneaky Pete” has been renewed for a second season. The series, which premiered on January 13th, was the second most streamed original scripted series on an opening day, behind “The Man in the High Castle”.
Sneaky Pete was co-created and is executive produced by Emmy winner Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad), and executive produced by Graham Yost (The Americans), who is also the showrunner, as well as Michael Dinner and Fred Golan (Justified), and James Degus (All The Way).
The series features an ensemble cast led by Giovanni Ribisi (Avatar) alongside Marin Ireland (Side Effects), Peter Gerety (Prime Suspect), Libe Barer (Parenthood), Shane McRae (Still Alice), Michael Drayer (Mr. Robot), and three-time Emmy Winner Margo Martindale (The Americans). Sneaky Pete is a co-production with Sony Pictures Television and is now available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
