With less than a month to go before the premiere of Syfy’s new alien series Hunters a new explosive trailer and a bunch of cast promotional images have been released.
Syfy’s new sci-fi series is based on best-selling author Whitley Strieber’s novel Alien Hunter. It’s also the TV baby of Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) and Natalie Chaidez (12 Monkeys) and with a pedigree like that, I hope the new series is as good as it looks.
Hunters centers around an FBI agent named Flynn Carroll (Nathan Phillips), who is investigating the abduction of his wife, Abby (Laura Gordon). On the hunt for his missing missus, he stumbles across a secret government unit that’s been assembled to hunt down a group of lethal terrorists who are not of this world. Joining the team, he is partnered with Regan (Britne Oldford) a valuable asset who also happens to be an alien.
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.
Hunters premieres April 11 on Syfy with a 13-episode first season.
