No Season 3 for the streaming drama.
January 30, 2018
Word is out that Hulu has cancelled Shut Eye after two seasons. Show star Jeffrey Donovan broke the news this afternoon with a post on his Twitter account, expressing gratitude to Hulu and Sony for being enjoyable to work for.
The drama premiered in 2016 and aired a total of 20 episodes. While critical and audience reception was mixed, it did find its share of fans. As is typical for streaming shows, viewership numbers are not made public, though audience interest would likely be a key factor into today's decision.
Shut Eye follows a former magician-turned-scam artist who oversees a chain of fortune-telling parlors for his domineering kingpin boss. When he suffers a blow to the head, his life is shaken up to the point where he questions everything he has ever believed. Now experiencing bizarre visions and losing track of time, he starts realizing there may be some truths beyond his fraudulent lifestyle.

I really liked this show. The first season was great and even though the second season took the main characters in a different direction, it was the overall theme of the show that things were constantly changing. Even though it's cancelled you should still take the time to watch it but fair warning season two ends on a cliff hanger. Too bad the show runners didn't feel the need to wrap it up somehow for the viewers.

Go @ mention Hulu on Facebook and Twitter, with the name of the show telling them to bring it back...it has worked a couple times if enough people do this. I really liked Jeffrey Donovan in Burn Notice and I was really starting to like this show as well.

Finding this out is like a kick in between the legs. Shockingly painful but wi H time the pain will subside.....hopefully

This was a fantastic show! Smart, edgy, and different. Of course it was going to be canceled. It was good! It ended on a huge cliffhanger. Thanks a lot, Hulu.

Darn. It was better than average. We just had finished the last episode and it was canceled. Too bad it ended with a big cliffhanger though. Hope to see Jeffrey Donovan in something else soon.
