Jett

#6 - Jett

Fresh out of prison, world-class thief Daisy "Jett" Kowalski is forced back into doing what she does best by dangerous and eccentric criminals determined to exploit her skills for their own ends. Gugino confirmed on Instagram in January 2020 that Jett — which had not been renewed by Cinemax yet — is looking for a new platform. “Many of you who’ve been loving the show (thank you) have been asking (and waiting VERY patiently I might add) for Season 2 info,” Gugino wrote. “I’ve been radio silent waiting for the official news that Cinemax will no longer be making original programming. And now that is the case. A very unusual and unforeseen development for sure. Soooooo, I wanted to let you know personally that the hunt for a new home for #JETT is ON.”
