NBC commissioned five new episodes of this '80s series for broadcast in Spring, 2003, to test for interest in reviving the show. However, once they began airing, NBC decided to cancel the project and only three of the five filmed episodes were shown. The other two episodes were never shown. Creative difficulties and budget constraints were cited as the reasons for this new show's unexpected end. See more »
I knew Hunter was back on the air, but I don't think it was in a good time slot, that's why it didn't have as strong a comeback as they thought it would, and it's not that it was a bad show, even for the comeback. I did, however, think the plots were a little thin, but, all it needed was some revamping. The theme music wasn't explosive either. Back in the 80's, when it was on, the theme music got your attention. I know the year is 2003 but, they should have stuck with the old time theme of the eighties. There's nothing wrong with having a period theme. It worked for Highlander and it still works for That 70's Show. I'm not sure why it didn't work for That 80's show either. I thought that show was funny. Anyways, Hunter could have been a great hit again if it had been given a chance. The execs should have thought out why it wasn't doing well. I don't think it was because of lack of content. It was because they had it up against other network time frames that were more popular than NBC on a Saturday night. NBC Saturday nights are not that exciting, I guess by now they have figured that out.
