‘Hunters,’ a conspiracy drama, should be renewed, right? Let’s look into what we know about what the future holds after the season concluded long back.
In 1977, Nazi hunters explore hundreds of high-ranking Nazi officials conspiring to establish a Fourth Reich in the United States. The Hunters scheduled out to bring the Nazis to justice and thwart their fresh genocidal proposals.
The characters in the series are based on a number of real Nazi hunters from history, but they are not meant to be exact replicas of any of them. Let’s talk about the possibilities for the upcoming season.
‘Hunters’ Season 2 Has Already Been Renewed
The series was renewed for a second season in August 2020. Weil said in a statement regarding the continuation of the series.
“I am beyond grateful to Jen and the Amazon family for their continued extraordinary support of Hunters. Alongside our magnificent cast, incredible crew, and brilliant writers and producers, I am more eager than ever to share the next chapter of the Hunters saga with the world.”
Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios, added, “With Hunters, David Weil’s bold vision and fearless imagination powered a thrilling, twisty, action-packed first season that engaged Prime Video customers around the world. We are thrilled that David, Jordan, and the Hunters will be back with us for more.”
‘Hunters’ Season 2 Release Date
It seems like an eternity since the announcement. However, the pandemic caused a production delay. Creator David Weil acknowledged principal photography will indeed take place in Europe in October in an interview with an outlet.
“I’m gonna get in trouble for saying this, but we’ve completed our U.S. leg of filming and we will be shooting in Europe in the coming days,” Weil said to an outlet.
“So, we’re very much in production and I hope that we’ll be speaking at some point next year about the release of Hunters season 2.”
Weil also said, “I want to follow through on the promise that I made to audiences at the end of season 1. I think the introduction of perhaps the most villainous character in history deserves a fitting season that pursues that character.
My hope for season 2 is that there’s a lot of thrills and terror, emotion, heart, catharsis, peril, and to deliver a season that is even bigger, that really builds on season 1 and pays off for our audience in a big way.”
At the time of writing, the release dates are still under wraps. The wait might be annoying but great things are ahead. Weil hinted, “I can’t, you know, speak too much about it. But a lot of great things are happening with it. And we’re close to really diving in, in a big way. I’m very, very excited about season two.
And I think the only thing with Hunters that you can always expect is to expect the unexpected and I think that an audience will be in for a lot of great role reversal twists, turns and rug pulls.”
There Will Be Some Things In Season 2
Weil talked about what to expect from season 2. “Intention is tantamount. Everything I do, every word I write, every character move and turn, there’s an intention behind it.
I think what I learned from season 1 of Hunters was to really follow my vision, my instincts, and my impulses, even if it stretches people’s imagination or expectations. But really I think the people in storytelling are tantamount, and also to engaging with an audience.
It’s been thrilling and informative and wonderful to hear the response to Hunters season 1, and, certainly, I think engaging with an audience, and listening to an audience is vital. There will be some things in season 2 that were done because of the great and informative and wonderful response to Hunters season 1.
I just loved that relationship with an audience and I want to continue to push boundaries and to be bold in storytelling.”
