Hulu has cancelled Shut Eye after two seasons. The Jeffrey Donovan drama will not follow its vision through to Season 3, RenewCancelTV has confirmed.
Donovan announced the cancellation on Twitter:
“Enjoyed Shut Eye. But all good things must end. I’m grateful to Hulu and Sony. They were great places to work at. Onward and upward.”

About Shut Eye:
Charlie Haverford (Jeffrey Donovan) promised Linda (KaDee Strickland) a home when they first met – a luxury they have yet to truly relax into all these years later, given their never-ending chase of the next con. Now, more than ever, Charlie and Linda need to completely trust one another, but that’s never been easy for these two unrelenting con-artists. As Linda struggles with Gina’s (Emmanuelle Chriqui) death, her concern over Charlie’s sanity, and the thinning thread of faith she has for her husband’s “plan” to save their lives and livelihood, Charlie plots to get out from under Fonso (Angus Sampson), Rita (Isabella Rossellini) and Eduardo’s (David Zayas) thumbs. Meanwhile, he continues to attempt to make sense of his visions and to further his quest to finally realize a “home” for his family.
The Marks family faces similar uncertainty as their home has quite literally been taken from them. Fonso and Rita are left at odds following the dramatic events surrounding Drina (Havana Guppy) and Lil’ Tony’s wedding. Rita, a staunch defender of tradition, quickly learns that her future depends on deftly navigating her obligations to her family and her culture. Her life is further complicated by a federal investigation that threatens everything she holds dear. Fonso, now cast out from his family and community, must reinvent himself and figure out where this new incarnation belongs. Even in Los Angeles – a city caught between bullshit and enlightenment – there is no place like home.
The cancellation of Shut Eye follows that of fellow sophomore drama Chance, and signals a change of direction for the streaming company as it looks to compete with rivals Netflix and Amazon.
