“I’m a fraud … so what do they give me? A real vision thing,” complains former magician Charlie Haverford (Jeffrey Donovan) in Hulu’s trailer for season two of Shut Eye.
The dark comedy about the organized crime ring around psychic storefronts in Los Angeles finds Charlie and Linda (KaDee Strickland) needing to trust one another—which has never been easy for the two con artists.
According to the synopsis from Hulu, Linda struggles with the death of Gina (Emmanuelle Chriqui), 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. Meanwhile, Charlie plots to get out from under Fonso (Angus Sampson), Rita (Isabella Rossellini) and Eduardo’s (David Zayas) thumbs as he continues to try 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.
Shut Eye is executive produced by Mark Johnson, Melissa Bernstein, and showrunner John Shiban, and created by and executive produced by Les Bohem. The series is produced by TriStar Television. The 10-episode season two premieres December 6 on Hulu.
