One of the big questions we were left pondering after the shocking Season 2 finale of NBC’s “Hannibal” was whether or not Will Graham would make it to Season 3, and who better to ask such a question than Graham himself, Hugh Dancy? Read on to find out what the star recently had to say about the future of the character!
In an interview with Collider, Dancy revealed that Graham is very much alive and will continue to be alive throughout at least some portion of the impending third season.
“Of all the characters that are bleeding out in that house, Will is the only one who we know from Thomas Harris’ novel that that actually happened to in the source material, and he comes back from it,” said Dancy. “And I just know that the story between the two of them isn’t finished. At the very least, there’s a third act there. We know that Hannibal has to be behind bars, at some point, and we know that Will has to get him there. It wouldn’t make sense any other way.”
So Will is still kicking, but what does that mean for Season 3? Will the season center on Will’s pursuit of Hannibal? And how many more times will I write the word/name “will/Will” during the course of this post?
“To be honest, I think that’s still up in the air,” Dancy revealed in response to the second question I posed above. “It would be odd, at this point in the show, having built up the rich stew that we have, to suddenly no longer have Hannibal and Will together, at all. I’m interested to see Hannibal gallivanting around the world, wherever he is, and I’m interested to see Will gallivanting around the world. But there’s gotta be some form of communication.”
