Created by David Weil and starring Al Pacino, the very interesting and very comical ‘Hunters’, the Amazon Prime series, has been one of the freshest and most casual surprises on the television scene of the year. Fed up with such seriousness, it was very pleasant to spend a few hours in a series that is never taken seriously. Although it seems the opposite.
Ancient history: season 1
After its premiere last February, the series on the Nazi hunters in the 70s has not yet confirmed its return to the platform, so fans are waiting wondering if Amazon Prime Video will renew it for a second season.
Throughout Season 1, the hunters led by Pacino put in check the so-called Operation Paperclip, a secret program of American Intelligence for which many investigators, scientists and other filthy beings of dubious reputation from the Nazi side of the Second War World Cup came to the United States to help the country.
To do this, the character of Pacino will lead a diverse group of Jews thirsty for blood and revenge willing to exchange an eye for an eye many years later, unmasking a plot that reaches the highest point of power and that will end in a totally unexpected way, very crazy and provocative. It will end up leaving us wanting more hunting.
Despite the fact that the series has convinced the majority of the public, thanks to its twists and turns of its first season, it has not managed to be considered a milestone, since it has also had to deal with a current of comfortable opinion, facilona, from a part of criticism and respectable that, go to know why, considers the series as the biggest mistake of Pacino’s career. An actor, remember, that in the last 20 years will have done one or two fairly interesting things.
Amazon has yet to officially pronounce on the renewal for a second season, but given the series’ success, the chances of it happening seem pretty high. The basis for confirming a new season is there and if it does we will have confirmation in the coming months.
Ideally the start of production for season 2 should be immediately after its announcement. 2021 should be the year of the second season, so it shouldn’t take us long to hear about it. Unfortunately, we must bear in mind that we are in a difficult moment due to the Coronavirus pandemic and, consequently, it is more than possible that there will be a delay in the launch of the second season.
What will happen in ‘Hunters’ Season 2
We will surely not see Al Pacino in the second season after the events that took place during the end of the first season. Of course, if you have more episodes you can expect to see your character (or should we say characters, in the plural?) Through flashbacks. And there follows (the majority) of his lethal team of hunters.
Logan Lerman should return, supported by Kate Mulvaney as Sister Harriet, Josh Radnor in the role of Lonny Flash (absolute favorite), and Tiffany Boone as Roxy Jones. Of course, we will have to see what the hell happens with the character of Lena Olin, who turned out to be a very well-accompanied Eva Braun in the shade and with Louis Ozawa’s Joe Mizushima in a delicate situation. And, of course, we should settle accounts with a certain monstrous killer behind bars right now.
It is soon and Amazon should speed up the process, even if it is the simple announcement, the confirmation of a new season of ‘Hunters’, so that at least we have a reason to live those who enjoy the crazy wanderings of its first season. Such series are no longer made, and for one that is made it would be a shame to spoil it.
