Hunting season is underway! That's right, Amazon Prime Video and award-winning writer/director Jordan Peele's Nazi-hunting series Hunters is hunting down WWII criminals all across the streaming service, with the 10-episode series debuting on Friday.
Before we get back to our pseudo-binging of the season, we thought we'd make the case one last time as to why the series should be hanging above your streaming mantel. In the following trailer, we see our "Hunters" in action as they answer Justice's very loud – and dangerous – call:
Amazon Prime Video's Hunters is a 10-episode limited series stars Logan Lerman as Jonah Heidelbaum, Al Pacino as Meyer Offerman, Kate Mulvany as Sister Harriet, Tiffany Boone as Roxy Jones, Carol Kane as Mindy Markowitz, Saul Rubinek as Murray Markowitz, Josh Radnor as Lonny Flash, Louis Ozawa Changchien as Joe Torrance, Jerrika Hinton as Millie Malone, Greg Austin as Travis Leich, Dylan Baker as Biff Simpson, and Lena Olin as The Colonel.
In the following behind-the-scenes clip, the cast discuss how the series came about:
Based on an original idea but also drawing on real historical events, Hunters follows a diverse band of Nazi Hunters living in 1977 New York City. Known as "The Hunters," the group discovered that hundreds of high-ranking Nazi officials are living among us and conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the U.S. The eclectic team of Hunters will set out on a bloody quest to bring the Nazis to justice and thwart their new genocidal plans.
And trust us: this team is definitely more than meets the eye…
