Jeffrey Donovan has intimated that Hulu’s Shut Eye could last seven seasons like his previous show Burn Notice, per THR:
Well, you never know. I mean, listen, did we think Burn Notice, the pilot, that it was going to go seven years and over 100 episodes? you just never know. But what I knew is I wanted to work with Johan Renck, who directed the pilot. I wanted to work with Melissa Bernstein and Mark Johnson from Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul. I wanted to work with Sony and I wanted to work with Hulu because i knew they were an emerging market and were going to put a lot of money into making great, great prorduct. Then when the cast started being formed – KaDee and Susan Misner and then David Zayas and Angus Sampson and Isabella Rossellini – the cast started coming together, I realized they were going after real actors; real, good, top-quality actors that were not the obvious choices. I’ve always not been the obvious choice. I feel like they were finding niche actors to fill these niche roles and create this whole new world that hadn’t been seen so it made me very excited to do the series.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancel/renew status of Shut Eye Season 2…
