Syfy has been on a creative tear lately, with The Expanse, 12 Monkeys and The Magicians generating loads of fan attention and positive insider buzz. The next spring round of original programming features Hunters, a gung-ho gang of covert govenment assassins out to spill a little extraterrestrial plasma.
Adapted from Whitley Strieber's best-selling 2013 novel, Alien Hunters, Hunters comes fully loaded with an all-star producing partnership of Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead, The Terminator Trilogy) and Natalie Chaidez (12 Monkeys) and follows a fearless fellowship of exo-terrorism experts as they track down a persistent plague of outlaw creatures and shape-shifting terrorists from beyond.
Here's the official synopsis:
In “HUNTERS,” when Baltimore FBI agent Flynn Carroll’s (Nathan Phillips, Wolf Creek) wife goes missing, his search leads him to a highly classified government organization – the Exo-Terrorism Unit (ETU) – who track and fight alien terrorists. Britne Oldford (“American Horror Story”) plays Regan, a valuable ETU operative keeping secrets of her own. The gritty sci-fi thriller also stars Julian McMahon (“Nip/Tuck”) as the dangerously unhinged terrorist McCarthy.
Take a look at this new teaser and tell us if it warrants a prime spot on your viewing schedule.
Syfy's Hunters launches its 13-episode first season on Monday, April 11, 2016, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. (Disclosure: Parent company of Blastr)
