The conspiracy drama ‘Hunters’ will make its way back to Prime Video subscribers for a second and final season. Amazon Studios announced that the series will have a brief return after the 2020 first season of ten episodes.
Amazon said in a press release, “Amazon Studios released the new teaser for the second and final season of Hunters, premiering exclusively on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide on January 13.”
They continued, “After an accident derails their exploits in Europe, the Hunters must band back together to hunt down history’s most infamous Nazi, Adolf Hitler, who’s hiding in South America. Meanwhile, a look to the past reveals Meyer Offerman (Al Pacino) encountering a dangerous threat that could unravel his secret and expose his true identity, with explosive reverberations for our Hunters.”
Pacino is returning to the series along with fellow castmates Logan Lerman, Jerrika Hinton, Lena Olin, Josh Radnor, Tiffany Boone, Carol Kane, Louis Ozawa, Kate Mulvany, and Greg Austin. Jennifer Jason Leigh is joining the final season cast.
“In celebration of the farewell season, Hunters will also be releasing an official six-episode companion podcast series, Chutzpah: Hunters Presents True Stories of Resistance. Debuting its first three episodes on December 13, the new podcast profiles extraordinary true stories of heroism, resistance, and sacrifice during the Holocaust,” Amazon noted.

Wikipedia describes the synopsis as follows,
“The series’ characters draw from a number of real Nazi hunters through the decades, but are not meant to be a specific representation of any of them. It follows a diverse band of Nazi hunters living in 1977 New York City who discover that numerous escaped Nazi officers are conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the United States. A parallel plot element is the discovery of Operation Paperclip, the U.S. government operation relocating many German scientists (many of them Nazis) to the U.S.”
The show is produced by Monkeypaw Productions and Sonar Entertainment.
