It has been two years since NBC cancelled “Hannibal,” what remains one of the most original and daring shows to have aired in recent times.
Fans have long clamored for more and those involved, from showrunner Bryan Fuller to stars Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy have all expressed a desire to return.
Efforts to save it didn’t work with Netflix and Amazon passing and the talk dying down. Now, in a tweet from Fuller, he’s offered a new ray of hope saying: “Conversations couldn’t start until 2 years after the final airing of season 3. [Producer] Martha De Laurentiis has started those conversations. This takes time.”
Back in the Spring, Fuller said there were some hurdles to get through to get the show revived, and next month a big one comes up with the rights reverting back to De Laurentiis. A deal would then have to be worked out with production company Gaumont.
It seems there’s a chance for Dr. Lecter’s return to public life after all.
