Watch: Hunters Panel at NYCC 2015
Aliens are among us. Or, at least they will be come April in Syfy's Hunters. It's from the creative team Gale Anne Hurd (executive producer of The Walking Dead and The Terminator trilogy) and Natalie Chaidez (Heroes, 12 Monkeys). Gale and Natalie, along with series star Britne Oldford and author Whitley Streiber (on whose book, Alien Hunter, the series was inspired) held a panel at New York Comic Con. Watch it below!
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 be tonally dark and offer a unique crossover twist between gritty crime drama and sci-fi thriller. The 13-part series commences on Syfy in April 2016.
