It looks like Marius’ con is over. Amazon has cancelled the Sneaky Pete TV show so there won’t be a fourth season of the drama series that was created by Bryan Cranston and David Shore.
An Amazon Prime Video crime drama, Sneaky Pete stars Giovanni Ribisi, Marin Ireland, Shane McRae, Libe Barer, Michael Drayer, Peter Gerety, Margo Martindale, Ethan Embry, and Cranston. The series centers on a con artist named Marius Josipović (Ribisi). After being released from prison, Marius has to go on the run from Vince Lonigan (Cranston), a vicious criminal he once robbed. Fresh out of options, Marius assumes the identity of his former cellmate, Pete Murphy (Embry) and, as a cover, involves himself with Pete’s estranged family.
Sneaky Pete started as a CBS pilot. The network passed on a series commitment but Amazon picked it up instead. Production moved from New York to California for season three with more than $9.2 million in California tax credits.
The third season of Sneaky Pete (including the defacto series finale) was released on Amazon on May 10th of this year. The series ran for 30 episodes in total.
