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…
