“We’re facing an epidemic of anti-Semitism, racism, xenophobia — the likes of which we haven’t seen in decades,” creator David Weil said at the TV press tour. “So this show is really a question. It’s: ‘What do you do?' For this show about a group of vigilantes who try and reclaim the power, the question the show poses is: ‘If you hunt monsters, do you risk becoming a monster yourself?'” Weil continued. “I think that’s very timely, I think it’s a question we should all be asking ourselves in this day and age.” ALSO: Weil calls Hunters a "love letter" to his Holocaust survivor grandmother.
