The streaming series starring Jeffrey Donovan will return for a second season.

Hulu has greenlit a second season of its original show, Shut Eye. The new season will see John Shiban (Hell on Wheels) take over showrunning duties from David Hudgins, who served as the showrunner during the first season.

Shut Eye takes a darkly comedic look at the world of Los Angeles storefront psychics and the organized crime syndicate that runs them. Former magician Charlie Haverford (Jeffrey Donovan) oversees a number of fortune telling parlors on behalf of his violent and domineering Romani kingpin boss, until a blow to the head jars him into a new mindset, making him question everything he has ever believed. 

The show's first season premiered through Hulu on December 7, and all ten season one episodes are now available to stream. A release date for the second season has not been announced yet.

Other upcoming Hulu series include The Handmaid's Tale on April 26,  Marvel's Runaways, a reimagining of Foxy Brown starring Meagan Good, Castle Rock from J.J. Abrams & Stephen King, and Future Man from executive producers Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Matt Tolmach, and James Weaver.

A current Hulu subscription starts at $8 per month with commercials. In addition, ad-free playback is available for $12 per month. Likewise, Hulu is also preparing to launch a live streaming service with content from networks like CBS, CBS Sports Network, POP, TNT, TBS, CNN, Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, truTV, Boomerang, Turner Classic Movies, FOX, ABC, Fox Sports 1, Fox Sports 2, BTN, ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, ESPN-SEC, ESPN 3, Fox Regional Sports Networks across dozens of key national markets, Disney Channel, Disney XD, Disney Junior, Fox News, Fox Business, Freeform, FX, FXX, FXM, National Geographic, Nat Geo Wild, A&E, HISTORY, Lifetime, LMN, FYI, and VICELAND.
