“Hunters” Renewed For Season 2

Al Pacino and Logan Lerman in "Hunters"

Amazon has renewed Hunters for a second season.

The conspiracy thriller drama was created by David Weil and executive produced by Jordan Peele. The first season premiered on February 21.

Hunters follows a band of Nazi hunters living in 1977 New York City who have discovered that hundreds of high-ranking Nazi officials have been living amongst them and conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the United States.

Al Pacino, Logan Lerman, Jerrika Hinton, Josh Radnor, Kate Mulvany, Tiffany Boone, Greg Austin, Louis Ozawa, Carol Kane, Saul Rubinek, Dylan Baker, and Lena Olin starred in the first season.

Weil’s inspiration for the series was from his grandmother who was a Holocaust survivor. “She would tell us (my brothers and I) about her experiences during the war. They were stories of great good versus terrifying evil. But they were stories of hope and courage and survival,” he said. “Growing up, I could see those stories through the prism of superheroes and comic books. That’s how I understood who she was, this superhero in my mind,” Weil told Deadline in June.
