Shut Eye is an American drama tv series created by Leslie Bohem. It airs on the popular streaming network Hulu. It had made its debut in December 2017, with a total of 10 episodes.
Shut Eye is about magic and psychics and whether they real or not. If you have ever wondered what exactly goes on inside those shops that advertise about fortune-telling or psychic readings, Shut Eye does a fantastic job of breaking it down for us. Right from their rituals to their scams.
The show has had two successful seasons so far. Now the question is, will there be a Shut Eye season 3? We will delve into that question, but first, let’s quickly look into the details of the series.
Shut Eye Cast: Who is in it?
The main cast of the show is led by Jeffery Donavan, who plays Charlie Haverford. Donavan had done a similar sort of role in Burn Notice prior to this. KaDee Strickland plays the role of bisexual business partner and wife to Charlie, Linda Haverford. Angus Sampson plays Fonso Marks, the boss of Charlie and Linda who also belongs to the Roma family. Fonso’s mother Rita Marks is played by Isabella Rossellini, who runs a tight and savvy business.
Dr. Nora White, a fine neurologist, is played by Susan Misner. Charlie consults her, and she believes he is a saint. Nick played by Dylan Schmid and Eduardo Bernal played by David Zayas are other relevant characters.
Shut Eye Plot: What’s it about?
Shut Eye is about the Haverford family and how they run a series of small psychic shops. Charlie Haverford is a failed magician who is now turned into a con artist and psychic. He runs a psychic shop from his house with his wife, Linda. They both work for a Roma/ Gypsy family primarily run by Fonzo and his mother, Rita. Things start becoming tougher for the Haverford’s as Charlie’s sister breaks a few rules which cost Charlie two of his shops to be taken away from him by his boss Fonzo.
Most of the first season is about Charlie’s life and where he stands precisely at that point in his life. He was a man who was said to have ambition but now is forced to settle into complacency due to internal and external reasons. His wife, however, does want more from him. She wants him to be more in charge; as a business partner and as a husband.
Charlie suffers a blow to the head, from a client’s angry boyfriend, which in a way changes his life. He starts getting a vision. Upon visiting a doctor, we learn that the visions he gets now are genuine and not a scam. This seems to make Charlie a legit psychic.
Season 2 begins with Charlie and Linda making plans after their heist at Li’l Tony and Drina’s wedding. It ends with Charlie and Linda trying to deal with their troubled marriage.
Shut Eye Season 3 Release Date: When will it premiere?
Shut Eye season 2 premiered on Hulu in all its entirety of 10 episodes on December 6, 2017.
As far as the next season goes, we have bad news for the fans. In January, 2018, Hulu announced the cancellation of the show. Lead actor Jeffery Donavan took to Twitter to express himself. He tweeted, “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”. So officially, Shut Eye Season 3 stands cancelled.
Considering the declining viewership of the show, it was expected that Hulu may not continue for another season. Though, fans should not lose all their hopes. There’s still a possibility that some other network picks up the show at some point in the future. If that happens, we will update you about Shut Eye season 3 release date.
