What is Sneaky Pete About?

David Shore and Bryan Cranston created the American crime drama series, Sneaky Pete. The series revolves around Marius Josipovi (Giovanni Ribisi), a recently released convict who takes on the identity of his cellmate, Pete Murphy, to avoid his past life.

The pilot premiered on August 7, 2015, followed by an entire series order in September of that year. After Shore left the project in early 2016, Graham Yost took over as executive producer and showrunner for the remaining nine episodes. 

The first season premiered in its entirety on Amazon Prime Video on January 13, 2017. On January 19, 2017, Amazon announced the renewal of Sneaky Pete for a second season, which premiered on March 9, 2018. Amazon announced on July 28, 2018, that the series had been renewed for a third season, which was released on May 10, 2019.

The story’s premise is about an ex-con who wants to hide his identity and be someone else to escape his past. With nowhere else to turn, Marius accomplishes this by assuming the identity of his cellmate, Pete, and then “reunites” with Pete’s estranged family. They have no reason to suspect he is not their “long-lost loved one” as he knows a lot about him.

It was an unfortunate moment for Sneaky Pete fans, but nothing lasts forever, and it had to close one day. Fans were disappointed by the show’s removal from Amazon Prime and tried to petition this.

However, there might be a ray of hope. There are rumours that any other OTT platform may acquire the streaming rights from Amazon Prime due to its compelling storyline.

Sneaky Pete’s creators have no plans to renew the series for a fourth season. However, if any streaming platform decides to buy the right s for the show and renew it in the future, the story will move on from the cat and mouse race between Marius and the vicious gangster hunting him down to kill him. On the other hand, Marius’ cover as Pete may blow up due to problems that prevent him from interacting with Pete’s family. Any close relationships with the Pete family may also be the season’s focus.
