NBC may have cancelled Hannibal (here) but you can never truly stop a dedicated serial eater, em, killer…

Producer Bryan Fuller has been talking about continuing the show and it seems there’s a few interested parties already: “I know there have been discussions on a couple of fronts with Netflix and Amazon.

“But I believe our deal with Amazon precludes a Netflix component, so I think Netflix, who has expressed interest and has expressed great enthusiasm for the show… I don’t think contractually with our Amazon contract, they can pick up the show.”

It’s obvious that Fuller is slightly optimistic, although as Constantine proved last month, you can never be too confident: “All I know is that things are being discussed with venues to see how interested they actually are,” continues Fuller. “I don’t know to what extent. Without an NBC component, it’s a little complicated. Even some of our international partners, because there’s no NBC component, will pass on a fourth season.”

If it did happen to continue – and god knows we hope it does – where would it go? “The concept for [next season] is inherently twisted, but also there is also a broadening of the palette to include a lot more humour. I would love to see the show continue, whether it be as a series or even condensed into a thriller as a film, as well. But with any of these things, it’s so hard to predict which way interest would fall.”

Come on Netflix, we can’t help but feel this is a union made in heaven…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
