Will there be a Season 3 of Hunters?
Unfortunately, sources have confirmed to Deadline that the series is done for good after the premiere of the upcoming season, quoting, “The end is in sight for Amazon Prime Video’s Hunters.” The conspiracy thriller drama series, created by David Weil and executive produced by Jordan Peele, will end after the upcoming second season. Despite the fact that the prior season has a fairly average reception, the series has been canceled.
The overall reception of the series has an approval rating of 64% with 107 reviews on Rotten Tomatoes, with an average rating of 6.21/10 and the following critical consensus: “Propelled by a strong cast and an even stronger sense of justice, Hunters’ stylish first season doesn’t always hit the mark, but when it does, it strikes pulpy paydirt.” Metacritic gave the series a score of 55 out of 100 based on 37 critics, indicating “mixed or average reviews.”
Hunters Season 2: What to expect in the final season?
On August 3, 2020, Amazon renewed the series for a second and final season which is scheduled to be released on January 13, 2023, on Amazon Prime Video. According to the network, Season 2 will be focused on a worldwide search for Adolph Hitler, played by German actor Udo Kier, in an attempt to eliminate him for good. Hunters Season 1 finale revealed that, in the series’ alternative-history universe, the German dictator and his wife, Eva Braun (aka the Colonel, played by Lena Olin), were alive and well and living in South America. Further, they were in the process of planning a Fourth Reich that would take root in America.
It is also reported that Season 2 will kick off in 1979 and will employ dual timelines; the timeline unfolding in the past will allow Al Pacino to return as Meyer Offerman aka The Wolf. Series creator David Weil told Entertainment Weekly that, throughout his life and Jewish upbringing, he’d felt frustration that Hitler had never had to answer for his crimes against humanity. “So Hunters, being a show about catharsis, about Jewish empowerment, and about wish fulfillment for Jewish kids like me who grew up wanting to reclaim power,” he said, “Season 2, I hope, will be that catharsis.”

Hunters Season 1: A Quick Recap
Hunters received polarizing reviews upon the release of its first season, with praise for its premise, messages, action sequences, and performances, but criticism for its story-telling, inconsistent tone, pacing, historical inaccuracies, and conclusion. A positive review described the show as “audacious, tonally complex, not always in control of its message, visually arresting, and moving, especially in its grim flashbacks to the brutalities and courage in the death camps,” while one of its harshest detractors called it “uneven, awkward…often dull,” and “sort of yucky.”
According to Amazon Prime, the first season is inspired by true events, Hunters follows a diverse band of Nazi Hunters in 1977 in New York City who discovers that hundreds of escaped Nazis are living in America. And so, they do what any bad-ass vigilante squad would do: they set out on a bloody quest for revenge and justice. But they soon discover a far-reaching conspiracy and must race against time to thwart the Nazis’ new genocidal plans. Take a look at the official trailer below to recap the events which will lead to the new season.
