Hunters is an American drama web series inspired by a group of Nazi hunters from New York City who try to discover Nazi criminals conspiring to create the Fourth Reich in the United States. Al Pacino was the leader of the Nazis hunters in the first season, and it was his first lead role in a television series. However, in Hunters Season 2, he would not be there anymore.
Season one of the show received a huge appreciation from the audience. The show ended with a lot of twists, and that demanded the comeback of Hunters season 2. So, Hunters season 2 is set to continue on Amazon Prime even after all the things that have come to light. Though the contradictory show has already divided the critics and the fans into two parts, Amazon Prime has somehow managed to bring the next season of the show on the table for its fans. The show is directed by David Weil and produced by Jordan Peele. The first season of Hunters went live in February 2020.
Hunters Season 2: Release Date
Currently, there is no official confirmation on the release date of Hunters Season 2. Till now, the only news available is that the next season of Hunters will be out soon. Since the first season has made its debut in February 2020, it is predicted that the release of season 2 will surely be out by 2021. However, this is just a prediction, and there is no certainty on the statement of the release date as the whole world is in the pandemic. Fans might have to wait a little longer to see their favorite stars online.
Head of Amazon Prime, Jennifer Salke, said: “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.” This engagement has ignited the interest of Salke to get the show reeling on Amazon Prime.

The plot For Hunters Season 2

Hunters Season 2 will also be based on the hunting of real Nazis over the decades. Along with this, there is a hint or added element of operation “Paperclip” to be shown in the show. So, now for those who don’t know what Operation paperclip is and what will be shown in the show, here’s an overview:
Operation paperclip is also known as operation overcast. The operation refers to a controversial top-secret U.S. intelligence program that brought Nazi German scientists to the USA to use their brainpower for the Cold War.
Hunter Season 2 News
It was seen that Amazon release deadlines are unpredictable. It’s because, for a few shows, the dates have been out way before the expected timeline. Apart from this, a piece of good news about this show is that there can be five complete seasons. This means that the conspiracy and thriller packed Hunters seasons will be streaming online as per David Weil – the creator of the show. To be precise and specific, he said, “I have at least five seasons’ worth of ideas of where I see the series going, and I certainly know the ending of the series.”
Season one of the Hunters faced criticism from the Auschwitz Memorial Museum, which held the former concentration camp. The controversy was based on using Auschwitz for the fictional element within the story that depicted a human game of chess in the show. The memorial then tweeted that “Auschwitz was full of horrible pain & suffering documented in the accounts of survivors, Inventing a fake game of human chess for @huntersonprime is dangerous, foolishness & caricature. It also welcomes future deniers. We honor the victims by preserving factual accuracy.”
In the response, the show’s creator concluded in a statement that the indulgence of chess was to represent the actual and the hurtful position people were in.
What can viewers expect?
In the finale episode of Hunters season 1, Hitler’s appearance was seen. Though the whole face was not revealed, the lower half with a mustache was shown. So, it was concluded that the cast of Adolf Hilter could be a high-profile actor who can play the badass villain. That’s a lot left on the table for Hunters season 2 to know. One thing is certain that Al Pacino won’t be back for Season two. If he comes back, that will only be in the form of a flashback as Meyer Offerman is dead.
It’s expected that many unsolved questions of viewers will be solved in the coming season, and there will be many mysteries that will then be set for the next season. As mentioned above, the creator of the show has announced that there can be five seasons. The viewers of the show are expecting a lot of thrill and excitement from the new season of The Hunters.
The fans of Hunters will have to wait for Hunters season 2 to be out till 2021. But, not to worry, we will keep you updated and let you know anything and everything we know about the show. We can expect and hope that the coming seasons are even more thrilling and exciting for the viewers.
