It needs daring to show delicate matters on the screen and David Weil has done that thing efficiently. Hunters is an English black comedy series that aired on 21st February 2020 on Amazon Prime Video. The series shows a story of a distinct category of Nazi hunters in 1977 New York City. Their main motive is to suppress the cabal of reputable Nazi officials operating towards the fourth Reich. The first season of the drama has got mixed responses from critics.
The genre of content that the series offers creates a partition among critics. They have admired the drama for its storyline, action scenes, and acting performances but they aren’t impressed with its uncertain tone, and inexact history. However, Weil has rectified that the drama is not entirely based on historical incidents. Now, after watching one thrilling season, fans are thirsty to watch Hunters Season 2. So, let’s see whether their wishes be fulfilled or not?
Are We Getting To Know Hunters Season 2 Release Date?
Hunters season 1 was launched on 21st February 2020 on Amazon Prime Video. The first season comprises ten episodes with a duration of 57-90 minutes each. Now, if we talk of Hunters season 2 release date, we have a very good update to share with you. We have already told you that the series has got mixed reviews from critics and it has received just 64% of critics’ score on Rotten Tomatoes which could become a hurdle in its path but fortunately that didn’t happen as it received a green light for season 2 on 3rd August 2020.
After the minimization of COVID-19 restrictions, multiple dramas have returned to production. But we don’t know whether the same is happening with Hunters Season 2 or not?. It’s quite crucial to keep in mind that the pandemic has created big barriers to the filming schedules of movies and tv shows. If the shooting of the second season has started then season 2 can be released by the end of 2021.
You will be amazed after hearing that Weil has planned five more installments of drama. So, there are many things which we are going to see next season. While discussing with Inverse, he said “There are so many stories to tell. I’m dying to tell them, and I’m ready.”
