Oh, Hannibal, how we miss you every. Single. Day.
It was one of the smartest, bloodiest and best TV shows of recent times and we’re still sore that it’s gone. And we’re sorer still that Netflix and Amazon both passed it by.
However, creator Bryan Fuller recently hinted that the show might resurface in a few years, and now Will Graham himself, Hugh Darcy, has revealed that Fuller has pitched Season 4 to him: “Bryan [Fuller] pitched it to me … well, he, described to me in an overview with what he wanted to do with the 4th season, had there been an interest, and it was really fantastic.
“It was a complete restart, without describing it — because who knows, God knows, maybe some way we may be able to do it in the future — but it took us back to the first season in a very unexpected way, and made total sense of that cliffhanger ending; it seemed justified. It was born out of a part of one of the books so it was still coming out of that universe, but it wasn’t the Clarice / ‘Silence of the Lambs’ storyline.”
Darcy does make it clear that, while everyone would like to see the show return, other commitments would be an issues, at least in the immediate future: ”All I can say is that Bryan is very busy, Mads is busy, I’m busy right now, but I know that all of us would happily come back in the future.
“I think we’d all be happy to return in some capacity, and the idea of a movie is really interesting. Obviously, one of the things that we did with the show, that Bryan did really, was very languorous, very image-rich storytelling, so how to fit that into a movie, I’m not sure. But the version of the season he described to me … I just know I’d like for it to happen.”
We would be behind ANYTHING Fuller managed to do with Hannibal and, like true fans, we’ll hold out hope that someday… someday, we might just see the return of Dr Lecter.
