Will 'Sneaky Pete' Return for a Season 3?

The premiere season for Amazon’s Sneaky Pete garnered rave reviews and a nomination at the 8th Critics’ Choice Television Awards for Best Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. More than a year after the acclaimed first season aired in January 2017, Amazon released the follow-up second season on March 9, 2018.

Once again starring Giovanni Ribisi as the duplicitous Marius Josipovic, the second season of Sneaky Pete lost a rather vital asset in Bryan Cranston’s character, Vince Lonigan, the man who put Josipovic in prison. With Lonigan’s arrest and Cranston’s departure, the series was forced to focus on Josipovic’s other relationships, particularly those of the family of the man whose identity he stole, Pete Murphy, and other rivals. Filling Cranston’s shoes as series antagonist is Luka Delchev, portrayed by John Ales.

Though Uproxx’s review points out that Cranston’s absence was definitely felt, Screenrant felt the actor’s departure let the rest of the show shine. “[Cranston] had the tendency to suck the air out of every scene he was in, and in his absence, season two finds it a little easier to breathe,” Kevin Yeoman writes in the Screenrant review. According to Uproxx, the season follows forgettable subplots from the previous season, including those of Otto, Julia, Taylor, and Carly.

As viewers plow through the entire season, which is available on Amazon all at once, they may contemplate the potential for a third season. Though Amazon has yet to confirm whether it’s moving forward on production of a third season, the season two finale leaves plenty of room for things to get even more complicated for Marius.

The second season of Sneaky Pete was announced less than a week after the first season released, meaning the confirmation of a third could be right around the corner. With the praise season one received— including a 100% “Certified Fresh” score on Rotten Tomatoes — even if, as Uproxx claims, season two is a drop in quality, it’s unlikely Amazon will abandon the series entirely.

President Donald Trump's administration has tried for over a year to wield the United States census to bolster its anti-immigrant platform, rather than getting an accurate count of the country's populace to better allocate its resources.

The administration has long sought to add a citizenship question, despite warnings that it could result in underreporting of the population and the targeting of immigrants.

According to reporting from The Tampa Bay Times, Republican party is once again using the census to bolster its interests.

President Donald Trump replaced former Acting Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats with longtime Trump ally and ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell. The move came after Trump rebuffed Coats for announcing Russia's ongoing attempts to interfere in the 2020 election.

Grenell was deemed vastly unqualified for the position, to the point that officials had to assure Americans that the new Director of National Intelligence would be announced soon.

Trump said he was considering his longtime ally in Congress, Representative Doug Collins (R-GA), for the position...but there's just one problem.
