David Weil’s Hunters is a conspiracy drama streaming series that premiered on Amazon Prime Video in 2020. It follows a group of nazi hunters living in 1977 New York City who discover war criminals are planning to create a fourth Reich in America. The characters in the series are based on real nazi hunters from throughout history, but they are not supposed to be an accurate portrayal of any individual.
Another major plot point is the discovery of Operation Paperclip by the United States government, which involved relocating many German scientists (many of whom were Nazis) to America. After the global success of season 1, fans are eagerly anticipating more seasons of the show.
When is Hunters Season 2 Coming Out?
Hunters season 2 release date was announced by Prime Video Network. Hunters will premiere on Prime Video Network on February 17, 2023, with ten episodes. It will have the same number of episodes as the previous one (10).
Hunters Season 2 Trailer & Update
As of now, there is no trailer for Hunters season 2. However, since the series’ second season is set to come out in February 2023, a trailer should be released soon.
Hunters Season 2 Plot
Season 2 of Hunters will follow the narrative established in Season 1, with protagonists inspired by real-life Nazi hunters. They are not intended to be exact copies of any of their characters, though.
A group of individuals from various backgrounds come together to discover that the Nazis are planning to establish the Fourth Reich in the United States. The narrative follows Effort Paperclip, a US government program that brought German scientists (including some Nazis) to America, as it is revealed in New York City in 1977.
Season 2 will focus on the conflict between Johan’s Hunters and the task force led by Millie. In Season 1, there will be additional mysteries addressed, including the unusual Cameo of Hitler in the last moments.
Hunters Season 2 Cast
After the jaw-dropping conclusion of season 1, flashbacks are all that remain to bring Al Pacino back for season 2.
A new lead was reported in April for season 2. The Hateful Eight actress Jennifer Jason Leigh will take on the role of Nazi hunter Chava Apfelbaum.
Weil stated, “Jennifer’s an act, wildly brilliant, insightful, and soulful.” She’s a real chameleon who’ll wow audiences with her performance. Her acting talent is incredible. She’s a fantastic person to know. Joining our Hunters cast was an outstanding experience for me and the rest of the crew.
Some new names have been added to the cast list. They include Riverdale’s Tommy Martinez and Fear Street’s Emily Rudd, who have yet to be officially announced. Udo Kier, a German actor, will play Adolf Hitler.
During an interview, Weil stated that he wanted to keep his campaign promise. This was a reference to a brief shot of Hitler in Argentina at the conclusion of season one. “I believe the introduction of perhaps the most villainous character ever recorded deserves a season that focuses on that character. Season two should have a lot of excitement, terror, emotion and heart. I hope to deliver an even bigger season that builds on season 1. And that our audience will be rewarded in a huge way.”

Recap of Hunters Season 1
The first season of “The Hunters” comes to an end with a cliffhanger twist. This gives the writers a lot of scope for the second season (and beyond). Jordan Peele serves as a co-creator of “The Hunters.” It’s about a fascist threat against America that has some real truths behind it. The Amazon series is divisive because of its sensitive subject matter. In terms of drama, the combination of fact and fiction creates a Hunters finale that cleverly (and conveniently!) incorporates a real-life Nazi leader.
The first season of Hunters follows a team that searches for Nazis across the Eastern United States and tries to prevent the Fourth Reich from rising. Meyer Offerman (Al Pacino), a Jewish man who gathers a varied crew that includes Lonny Flash (Josh Radnor), Roxy Jones(Tiffany Boone), Joe Torrance (19Louis Ozawa), Sister Harriet [Kate Mulvany], Mindy Markowitz (Carol Kane) and Jonah Heidelbaum, great-grandson of Holocaust survivor Ruth Heidelbaum.
Although Biff Simpson (Dylan Baker) is a Nazi attempting to flee the United States, Neo-Nazis led by Lena Olin (Greg Austin), and Travis Leich (Greg Austin) plot against America by formulating a plan that will have an impact on many American cities.
