Syfy’s made a huge push with original, scripted programming lately and they’re not showing any signs of slowing down. Their latest offering is Hunters, a scifi thriller about alien terrorists living among us. The show has an impressive pedigree with executive producers Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) and Natalie Chaidez (12 Monkeys) helming the show which is based on the best-selling novel, Alien Hunter, by Whitley Strieber.
To entice you even further, Hunters will premiere on Monday, April 11 at 10/9c, a week ahead of the season 2 debut of 12 Monkeys. The series will remain in this time slot which immediately follows airings of the mind-bending time travel show. Now, Syfy has given us two really good reasons to look forward to Mondays. It’s a nearly impossible feat, but I think they’ve managed to pull it off.
Watch this trailer for Hunters to get a taste of what to expect.
From executive producers Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead, The Terminator trilogy) and Natalie Chaidez (12 Monkeys, Heroes), Hunters is inspired by Whitley Strieber’s best-selling novel, Alien Hunter, in which the disappearance of a decorated FBI agent’s wife leads him to a secret government unit assembled to hunt a group of ruthless terrorists – shadowy figures that may or may not be from this world.
The series stars Nathan Phillips (Wolf Creek) as Flynn, a headstrong Baltimore FBI agent with a dark past trying to piece together the disappearance of his wife. Britne Oldford (American Horror Story) will play Regan, who is one of the government’s most valuable operatives and may be keeping secrets of her own. Julian McMahon (Nip/Tuck) portrays McCarthy, an unhinged junkie and Hunter cell leader.
Hunters will push boundaries by redefining what makes a terrorist and offer a unique crossover twist between gritty crime drama and sci-fi thriller. The series will premiere in April 2016.
