David Weil’s conspiracy drama series Hunters returned for a second and final season. The controversial and highly entertaining show follows a gang of assassins, who track down and kill Nazis in contemporary America.

This takes place in an alternate history, where the most hated man to ever walk this earth is still very much alive. If you’ve enjoyed this action-packed series and you are now looking for something similar to binge-watch, then take a look at this recommendation list.

Here are ten shows you might want to watch after finishing Prime Video’s Hunters.

10 TV Shows like Hunters you must watch

The Man in the High Castle (2015 – 2019)

Hunters wasn’t the first Prime Video series to focus on the Nazis in an alt-history setup. The Man in the High Castle got there a few years earlier. Based on Philip K. Dick’s sci-fi epic, this series tells the story of a parallel universe where the Nazi Party and the Empire of Japan won World War II and now rule the world. They have divided America into two halves, with each villainous nation ruling one part. The show was a big hit early on for Prime Video, with critics praising the world-building and overall entertainment factor.

For All Mankind (2019 – present)

If you just can’t get enough of your alt-history drama shows, then why not give Apple TV+’s For All Mankind a whirl. The flagship sci-fi series depicts a past where the Soviet Union were the first nation to land on the moon, not the Americans. This disastrous outcome continues the space race indefinitely as tensions rise between the two countries. It means that technologies advance, however, the two nations are seemingly at war with one another. The show includes some impressive special effects work and plenty of suspense. Sci-fi fans will be in their element with this one.

Mindhunter (2017 – 2019)

Netflix’s crime series Mindhunter explores revolutionary criminal profiling in the 1970s. We follow the oddly paired FBI agents Holden Ford and Bill Tench as they interview serial killers and mass murderers in the hopes of finding a connection between them all. These courageous agents search for killers, much like the Nazi hunters in the Prime Video series. Both can be dark and brutal offerings, addressing the darker side of the human psyche, whilst also finding time to build genuine relationships. David Fincher’s critically acclaimed series ran for two seasons and seems to be stuck in a purgatorial hiatus of late. Fingers crossed they renew the series for a third season in the future.

The Walk-In (2022)

Even after the fall of the Nazi Party and with all of society’s advancements, there is still a political movement out there preaching Hitler’s beliefs. Hunters does a great job of addressing this unchanged behavior in season two, whilst other shows have focused their entire plots on Neo-Nazism. ITV’s true-crime drama series The Walk-In looks at a real-life incident involving a terrorist with fascist beliefs, who plots to kill an MP. This gripping series, starring Stephen Graham, Jason Flemyng, and Dean-Charles Chapman (1917), has been quoted as ‘necessary viewing’, with its important subject matter.

Invasion (2021 – present)

The talented creator of Hunters, David Weil, has worked on a handful of projects since the launch of his Nazi-hunting show, producing another sci-fi-centric series in 2021, this time for Apple TV+. Invasion, which Weil co-created with Simon Kinberg, looks at an alien invasion from various individual points of view. The show stars Sam Neill as Sheriff Jim Bell Tyson, with ten episodes released to date. The series was renewed for a second season straight after its initial release. You can catch up with the first season on Apple TV+ right now.

The Plot Against America (2020)

Alt-history is very in right now. This mini-series, which debuted on HBO back in 2020, envisioned a history in which a racist politician became president of America in the 1940s and turned the country towards fascism. This bold take starred Zoe Kazan, Winona Ryder, and John Turturro. It was highly praised for its tense finale and masterful craftsmanship, with critics calling this cautionary tale a tough, but crucial viewing. On Sky Go and Now TV in the UK.

The Blacklist (2013 – present)

Another series where anti-heroes hunt down the bad guys, The Blacklist follows James Spader’s Raymond Reddington, a criminal who works alongside the FBI to capture other criminals. He uses his blacklist, which he’s accrued over the years, to provide information on the most dangerous criminals on the planet, which helps him to avoid prosecution in the process. The show has run for nine seasons now, with nearly 200 episodes produced to date. Available on Prime Video in the UK and on Netflix in the States.

Solos (2021)

Yet another series created by David Weil (I told you the man was busy), Solos is an anthology series produced by Prime Video. Zach Braff, Sam Taylor-Johnson, and Tiffany Johnson directed installments, alongside the creator, in this seven-part sci-fi drama series. The show is a little like Black Mirror, exploring the human condition through futuristic means, praised for its star-studded cast (Morgan Freeman, Anne Hathaway, Anthony Mackie, and Helen Mirren) and many standout moments.

Hitler’s Circle of Evil (2018)

Surprisingly, there are very few top-quality documentary series about Adolf Hitler to be found on the net. This British miniseries looks at the rise and fall of the Third Reich, with reconstructions told in a dramatic fashion for the utmost effect. It looks at the major influences within the Nazi Party and of course at Adolf Hitler himself. The series is hugely successful on IMDB, with a score of 8.0 from over 4.5k votes. The series is available to watch on Netflix.

Watchmen (2019)

Damon Lindelof’s continuation of the Watchmen saga was a critical success for HBO, imagining a world where superheroes, both with and without superpowers, made waves in society. The stand-alone series looked at an alt-history, just like Hunters, and also focused on a vigilante group of freedom fighters tackling racism in modern-day America. There are many more ties to the Prime Video series, including dictatorship, fascism, and injustice. Easily one of the best miniseries around, it is well worth a watch.
