Hunted on CBS premiered January 22, 2017 for a 28 day manhunt adventure with a big payday at the end for any of the nine pairs of wannabe fugitives set to run anywhere and everywhere they can go through the southeastern United States with a 100,000 square mile playground to run.
18 daring people will set out in pairs with the mission to not be found but that won’t be so easy with a dedicated team of investigators and law enforcement experts working to track them down and bring them to Reality TV justice. Well, CBS isn’t calling Hunted “Reality TV” but rather an “alternative series.”
“Hunted is a compelling new alternative series format, which our Alternative department had been tracking for a while, that feels tailor-made for CBS,” said Glenn Geller, President of CBS Entertainment.
Hunted follows ordinary people attempting the nearly impossible task of disappearing in today’s vast digital world, as professional investigators combine state-of-the-art tracking methods with traditional tactics to narrow down the search area.
From searching their target’s home and scouring Internet and cell phone histories to identifying behavioral patterns, they look for clues to potential hiding places and collaborators that can ultimately lead to capture.
The new series is an extension of the ongoing UK series and CBS looks excited enough about the series to already be casting for a second season. From the first trailer below I’m hoping we’ll see at least these two seasons. Check out the video here and get ready for the premiere.
The debut season premieres on Sunday, January 22nd but then shifts to Wednesday nights with a two-hour episode on the 25th before dropping back to one hour shows each week on Wednesday nights at 8/7c on CBS.
Team David & Emiley were my leading picks to win at Hunted but that came to a crashing end this week when the pair was picked up literally on the run. Now with their journey over the two sat down to talk about their adventure. It’s always nice to see someone hold on to a […]
CBS’s “Hunted” TV series kicked off for its first season 2017 with eighteen contestants making up nine pairs, each with the chance of winning $250,000 if they could evade capture for 28 days. It didn’t take long for that list of players to shorten and I’d expect that pace to pick up as we go. […]
Hunted continued as we settled in for the chase to see who got caught last night or if it’d be like last week with another round of escapes by the Fugitives. This is the second to last episode of the season so there isn’t much time left! Since the editing of Hunted follows no actual […]
The CBS Hunted finale is is just one week away leaving us with two last episodes of the season as four teams of Fugitives remain on the run. Tonight we’ll see how many of those pairs make the finale next week. We had some close calls last week for a few of the teams but […]
CBS’s Hunted series is ready to wrap up its run with the final two episodes of the debut season as we prepare to see who will win the money and escape capture over the next two Wednesday nights. For the first time all season an episode closed out without any of the Fugitives being discovered […]
Fugitives are on the run and the Command Center looks to be closing in this week on Hunted. Who got caught last night? It’s time to find out. Four teams are left on the go and that means the Hunters have double the manpower to focus with less than half the runners still on the […]
Hunted continues tonight on CBS with the fifth episode of the season and four teams left on the run as the Hunters close in one couple and another takes a risk to see family. We get a sneak peek clip from tonight’s show that reveals English and Stephen are only on Day 6 (nice to […]
Hunted is back on CBS this Wednesday with only four teams of Fugitives left in the season and three episodes left to go as the March 1st finale date closes in like Hunters on the trail! The latest teaser suggests Hunted spoilers that another team is about to be captured and this time it looks […]
Another week, another captured team on Hunted. This week that honor went to Team Tran with Sentra and Thu falling victim to their basic need of food and a “run for the border.” After surviving 14 days on ramen noodles the pair thought the risk was worth the reward of some nachos and crunchy tacos, […]
Hunted is back and we’re ready to find out who got caught last night with only five pairs of evaders left in the mix and all of them with the chance to runaway with the $250,000 prize money. One team has fallen each round and with the late introduction of tonight’s last team, Stephen and […]
