Hunters is a 2020 American drama streaming television series created by David Weil.
In 1977, in New York City, a troubled young Jewish man bent on revenge is taken in by a secret group of Nazi hunters fighting a clandestine war against the cabal of high-ranking Nazi officials in hiding who work to create the Fourth Reich.
Meyer is rescued from the wreck by Harriet while the Colonel is killed. Jonah begins a search for Wilhelm “The Wolf” Zuchs, the Nazi doctor who tortured Meyer and Ruth thirty years before. From clues, Jonah discovers Ruth’s files which lead him to capture a surgeon he believes to be the Wolf who Meyer executes. However, Meyer does not recite a prayer he had sworn to Ruth he would if he ever caught up to the Wolf, leading a horrified Jonah to put the pieces together and realise that Meyer is actually the Wolf. Zuchs confesses, explaining that he had killed the real Meyer to take his identity and escape the Soviets while later undergoing plastic surgery (from the SS surgeon he just now killed) to complete the transformation. Having lived a Jewish life for thirty years, Zuchs insists that he regrets his actions and that a visit by Ruth a year before inspired him to bring the Hunters together as penance. Despite a vision of Ruth attempting to talk him down, Jonah kills Zuchs and reveals the truth to the other horrified Hunters. Harriet, after having consulted with an unidentified woman, suggests to the remaining Hunters that they continue their mission in Europe. Mizushima is kidnapped and taken to Argentina, where he discovers that The Colonel is alive, her identity is Eva Braun and she is living with Adolf Hitler and four identical Aryan-looking boys.
Meanwhile Travis is incarcerated, visited by his parents who questioned what led him to this path. He recants his actions and asks for a lawyer. Later, Travis consults with his lawyer and confesses he has not changed at all. He tells the lawyer he needs an army and plans to recruit from inside the prison. To rally support, Travis kills his lawyer, a Jewish man, and shouts hate speech and hears the echoes of his chant as he has carried out.
