You’d be forgiven to have not seen Amazon’s Sneaky Pete just yet, given its Amazon premiere this past Friday, original conception as a CBS show and multi-year development. Still, the new con man drama from the minds and stars of Justified is sneaking by with a second season, Bryan Cranston or no.

It was early last year that Sandman and American Gods creator Neil Gaiman finally got the chance to pitch a TV adaptation of his first novel Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch.

Every director has both a Passengers and an Imitation Game in them somewhere, and let’s hope John Krasinski’s Amazon take on Jack Ryan skews more toward the latter. Passengers director Morten Tyldum will helm the first episode of the new series, which gets production underway in the coming months.

If the thought of an America overrun by fascists and always on the brink of nuclear annihilation offers no comfort, you may at least want to stay off Amazon in 2017. The Man in the High Castle has officially been renewed for Season 3, and with a new showrunner (or rather, a showrunner) at that.

The concept behind Amazon’s The Man in the High Castle is a funny one. Not so much the “ha, look at how far-fetched a totalitarian America feels,” but a deeper sci-fi premise than an alternate outcome to World War 2.
