Soon there will be one fewer fictional magician’s antics to watch on TV. Hulu has cancelled Shut Eye after two seasons. The show starred Jeffrey Donovan as a former magician who works for the mob and starts having strange visions after a head injury. The show never really took off for critics, and even with the excellent Jon Armstrong providing the magic consult for the second season, Donovan confirmed on Twitter that Shut Eye would not continue.
If you do want to see more magic on TV, then consider tuning in to the currently airing third season of The Magicians for a taste of supernatural powers. Or just do your best to be patient until March, when ABC’s Deception offers a new crime procedural with a dash of magic.
