                            'Sneaky Pete' season 4: Release date, plot, cast, trailer and everything else about the Amazon series

'Sneaky Pete,’ Amazon's rather underrated series about a con man Marius Josipović (Giovanni Ribisi) narrates the story of a released convict who takes on the identity of his cellmate Pete Murphy to escape a dangerous and vicious gangster.

His attempt to escape his past life as a con man only backfires - no doubt considering how assuming a false identity isn't always a foolproof plan. One would think that for a con man, Marius would be aware of that. As Pete, Marius reunites with Pete's estranged family, who have absolutely no reason to suspect that he is not, in fact, their long-lost loved one.

Release date:

After three hilarious seasons, 'Sneaky Pete' has been canceled by Amazon.

Plot:

The third season of 'Sneaky Pete' deals with Giovanni's Marius still on the run - from whom? Perhaps himself. As he finds himself stuck in a puddle, Marius must now figure out a way out of there; else, his life, and those he holds near and dear,  are in grave danger.

The official synopsis of the show is: "Who is Marius Josipovic? Marius himself would like to know. He's feeling a pull toward the Bernhardt family. But he's not part of the family. He's a con-man. The chance to become more like a normal human being is enticing. It also scares him to death. This season all the members of the Sneaky Pete family explore their identity. It’s a dangerous journey. They could lose themselves or their lives."

Giovanni plays the role of Marius, a con man who wants to escape his past life. In his attempt to run away from his reality, Marius assumes the identity of his cellmate Pete and reunites with his estranged family, the Bernhardts.

Giovanni is best known for his role in the TV series 'Sneaky Pete', 'Avatar', 'A Million Ways to Die in the West' and 'Ted'. If that doesn't ring a bell, you might remember him from NBC's hit show 'Friends', where he played the role of Frank Buffay, Jr.

Ireland has been on the cast of 'Sneaky Pete' since 2017. In 2009, the actress won the Theatre World Award and was nominated for the Tony Award for Best Featured Actress in a Play for 'Reasons to be Pretty'.

Creators:

Bryan Cranston as Vince Lonigan and executive producer

Bryan Cranston serves as the executive producer of the show and has also starred in it playing the antagonist in the first season (Vince Lonigan). Cranston needs no introduction; his recent role as Walter White on the AMC crime drama 'Breaking Bad' might as well be regarded as one of the best performances in television history.

For his portrayal of Walter White, Cranston won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series a total of four times, which includes three consecutive wins. He won the award for Outstanding Drama Series twice after becoming one of the producers of 'Breaking Bad' in 2011.

In the trailer of season three of the popular high stakes action show 'Sneaky Pete', we see Giovanni's Marius try to make head and tail of the ruckus he has gotten himself into by wrongly taking on the identity of his cellmate to escape his past life.

As it turns out, Pete's estranged family is not just a colorful and dysfunctional group but has a past as dangerous as his own - the one that he has been trying to escape. At the same time, Marius finds himself looking out for this family that is not even his - he has grown closer to them, something that even he didn't expect. This could maybe give him a taste of the loving family he's never had.

Where to watch:

You can catch the third season for 'Sneaky Pete' on Amazon Prime Video May 10.
