What do you think? Have you seen Sneaky Pete yet? Are you glad it’s been renewed?
Love the show! Can’t wait for Season 2.
So glad this renewed. Great show. Deserves more advertising.
We are so happy to see Sneakt Pete return after the pilot we voted on last year. It did not disappoint and we’re thankful you have renewed it for a second season.
LOVE THE SNEAKY PETE…WHAT A GREAT SHOW!!!! CANNOT WAIT FOR SEASON 2!!
This is such a lure me in and keep me hooked series. I’m almost finished with Season 1 and can’t wait for Season 2. Love, love, love it.
Watched the first episode a week ago. Haven’t had a yearning to watch another. I’m not sure what the enthusiasm about this show is all about. I’ve seen better.
Watching one episode is hardly a measure of the quality of a series, especially in the first season. Stick to 90 minute movies if you can’t wait more than a few episodes to get past the character and world development. A story with this many plot lines and character arcs needs more than one episode to paint the entire picture. I couldn’t have asked for more from Cranston and one of my favorite show runners, Yost.
So SO very happy SNEAKY PETE is renewed !
