Amazon Prime Video is set to release Hunters on February 21st marking Al Pacino’s first trip into the streaming television series universe. You may have noticed that we happen to love Al Pacino over here which means we’re very excited for this series to drop! But Pacino isn’t the only aspect of Hunters we’re looking forward to.
Join us as we share five of the many reasons we can’t wait to stream Hunters…
Jordan Peele is the executive producer of Hunters. You know him from Key & Peele and Get Out proving he can handle both drama and comedy extremely well. Knowing Peele is attached to this project means that it is probably going to be excellent! We expect a show about Nazi hunters to be dramatic, for sure, but we can also expect some great dry humor and wit to go along with the darkness.
The premise alone has us stoked for Hunters! The show takes place in NYC in the late 70s where Pacino (Meyer Offerman) is leading a band of Nazi hunters. What more do we need to hear? Sign us up! According to the show’s premise, the Nazis are planning a Fourth Reich and Offerman and his team are taking matters in their own hands to stop them. It’s going to be really exciting to see how these characters interact with each other and take down Nazis in their own vigilante way!
You probably recognize Jerrika Hinton from her role as Dr. Stephanie Edwards on Grey’s Anatomy but she hung up her scrubs a few years back. Now, Hinton is joining Hunters as Millie Malone an agent of the law. We loved Hinton on Grey’s but we are really looking forward to what she does with a role like this. Hinton is a fiercely talented actress and we can’t wait to see her BRING IT!
Joining Pacino and Hinton on their Nazi-hunting adventures is Logan Lerman who played Percy Jackson in the two films made from the books! Lerman has grown up quite a bit since his time at Camp Halfblood and he is ready to wow us as Jonah Heidelbaum. We can tell! Lerman is definitely playing a new character from what we’re used to for Hunters and we are really excited to see him work.
Pacino is a legend! There’s no doubt about that. He has brought so many characters to life on the big screen that we are ready to see him on the small screen (if we’re honest, we love Pacino on any screen). Meyer Offerman is a new role for him like his other castmates and we’re pumped to see what he does! We definitely feel like we’d be ready to sign up and join his team without question!
