After that release, the Hunters Season 1 was enough to make all the fans crazy. The great plotline and all the skilled actors of the season make it the talk of the town after the relief in Amazon prime. Also, season one got a lot of critics and renewed from people around the globe. The natural and fictional Holocaust atrocities and encounters with Nazis are what everybody is talking about right now. “We’re not making an attempt to humanise Nazis,” said executive producer and co-showrunner Nikki Toscano on an Amazon TCA panel
“Some Nazis are over to one extreme while other Nazis have various explanations for their behaviors… These arguments do not land with our hunters… We’re not trying to humanise them, but we recognise a spectrum.”
Some other details:
“He’s a master, and I love his stuff,” series creator David Weil told Inverse. “I think the challenging thing is that I never set out to have this show be Quentin Tarantino or Tarantino-light.”
While speaking about the good news, creator David Weil said: “I am beyond grateful to (Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios) and the Amazon family for their continued extraordinary support of Hunters. “Alongside our magnificent cast, incredible crew, and brilliant writers and producers, I am more eager than ever to share the next chapter of the Hunters saga with the world.”
Salke further stated: “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.
“We are thrilled that David, Jordan (Peele) and the Hunters will be back with us for more.”

David Weil, the creator of the series, stated that the filming would also take place in Europe. It is while speaking to EW.
He added: “I’m gonna get in trouble for saying this, but we’ve completed our US leg of filming and we will be shooting in Europe in the coming days. So, we’re very much in production and I hope that we’ll be speaking at some point next year about the release of Hunters season 2”.

Hunters Season 2 cast: Who will be returning for season 2?
Al Pacino might be returning for the Hunters Season 2 but only by flashbacks if we have any in it. In April, the reports and statements by Deadline stated that Hunters Season 2 would have a new lead. It is The Hateful Eight actress Jennifer Jason Leigh. The duo will be joining the cast as Nazi hunter Chava Apfelbaum. Riverdale’s Tommy Martinez and Fear Street’s Emily Rudd will also be a part of Hunters Season 2. German countercultural legend Udo Kier has been cast as Adolf Hitler.
“I want to follow through on the promise that I made to audiences at the end of season one”. Weil said while speaking to the EW in an interview. He talked about the short scene where you will get to see Hitler present in Argentina. “I think the introduction of perhaps the most villainous character in history deserves a fitting season that pursues that character. My hope for season two is that there’s a great deal of thrill and terror, emotion, heart, catharsis, peril, and to deliver a season that is even bigger, that really builds on season 1 and pays off for our audience in a big way.”

Hunters season 2 plot: what is the upcoming plot?
With the end of the season, we can say that the upcoming Hunters Season 2 will focus more on the battles. It is between Jonah’s Hunters and Millie’s task force. Executive producer Nikki Toscano while speaking to Refinery 29, stated about ut. She said she’d like to explore the character of Joe (Louis Ozawa) more.
“You’ll see a lot of soul-searching, in terms of a [possible] season two, as far as who Joe is, what he’s motivated by, and how the Nazis are able to use him as a tool for destruction.” David Weil further stated about the possibility of The Hunters relocating to Europe. They will be focusing on the hunt of Nazi lieutenants who were smuggled out of Germany and then disappeared.
“There are millions of stories, and I think that I was intrigued by the opportunity, if we are to have a second season and have it be in Europe, to see how stories can take our characters almost to the past. I think that season one is very much about the present and I think season two, if there is one, [would offer] the opportunity to take us into the past, to be closer to the site of where Jonah’s ancestors — where his grandmother or his grandfather — were from.
“To explore home in a way. For Sister Harriet as well [and] even for Lonnie, whose ancestors were all from Europe. I think there’s the opportunity to really go home to learn who you are and to discover your ancestry in a visceral way. I will say, it was an experience that I had. “I’d say 10 years ago or so, I had the great fortune to go back to Poland to Łódź where my grandparents lived in the ghetto. I went to Auschwitz to see the [barracks] where my grandmother was held. And we went to Warsaw.
That experience is what, if there are future seasons, I want to tap into. The visceral sort of harrowing, haunting, but deeply powerful idea of returning home and discovering one’s ancestors in a new way.” Creator Weil also spoke a little about about the future seasons. While referring to it he told Digital Spy and other press that “nothing scares us”.
“Yeah, if Amazon will give us that ability in the future, it’d be a very interesting thing to do”. “My grandmother was a Holocaust survivor who would tell me stories about the war,” he said while talking about the reason why he choose to create this series. “As I got older, I struggled with that feeling of birthright. How would I continue her story?
“For me, this was a love letter to my grandmother; a quest to don that vigilante cape with the [current] rise of anti-Semitism and xenophobia.”
Pacino while speaking to Digital Spy also explained further. He stated that what was the reason for him to go for this particular project. And the reason why he was so into it. As per the reports, we know that this was his first time on the small screen. “I’m very affected by the text… I liked the ideas.
“I liked the way he [creator David Weil] made the characters. His writing was exemplary to me.
“We talked about who this character was, and what they were trying to do with it. It sort of merged, and then I felt good about it. The project that you respond to is the one that you should do”. He stated: “I missed out on some great television offers I had in the past because the whole thing was: ‘You don’t do television’. “That’s what the advisors would say early on.”
