Hunters – Season 2
Release date: January 13th, 2023
If you want an intense watch to start the new year on the right foot, stream seasons 1 and 2 of Hunters. This crime drama thriller will give you the chills while you simultaneously fawn over Logan Lerman as Jonah Heidelbaum, the lead character.

In New York City, 1977, a Nazi hunters’ band found out several escaped Nazi officers were planning a Fourth Reich in New York City. They do everything they can to stop them, hence the moral dilemma of being bad to fight evil.
There’s a parallel plot alongside the hunters featuring the discovery of Operation Paperclip, an operation run by the U.S. Government to relocate German scientists to the States. Some of these scientists are also Nazis, so you can guess where the problem lies.

Unsolved murder investigations, the madness of power and influence, and unresolved love are some themes explored in the show.
