Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Gale Anne Hurd and showrunner Natalie Chaidez, HUNTERS is inspired by Whitley Strieber's 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. This one-hour series, a crossover between gritty crime drama and sci-fi thriller, follows Flynn, a headstrong Baltimore FBI agent with a dark past trying to piece together the disappearance of his wife, Abby, a talented piano player and teacher. Flynn is joined by: Regan, one of the government's most valuable operatives, who may be keeping secrets of her own; McCarthy, an unhinged junkie and Hunter cell leader; team leader Truss Jackson, a former Army Special Forces, who is currently the no-nonsense Commander of the Exo-Terrorism Unit (ETU), a secret government organization dedicated to tracking aliens known as 'Hunters'; Dylan Briggs, who is cold, by-the-book and ruthlessly dedicated to taking down Hunters, behavior that often puts him at odds with his teammates; and Jules Callaway, an MIT-trained analyst and the tech team leader of the ETU, who is a highly regarded and dependable member of the team.
On Monday, July 11, 2016 at Midnight ET/PT, Syfy premiered the series finale of HUNTERS. In the series ender, "New Holy Ground," the day of the Purge arrives in the Season 1 finale, during which the fate of the human race is determined by the actions of the ETU. Three days before the finale, Syfy announced that it canceled the series after only one season.
