Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal TV series with Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen has been a hit over on Netflix. And today Fuller spoke a bit about how a fourth season could come to be.
Fuller tells Collider: “Martha De Laurentiis controls the rights for the Hannibal character. [Gaumont International Television], who produced the Hannibal series that we worked on, has the rights to those characters and those situations. So if we want to continue telling the tales we were telling, Gaumont needs to be involved, Martha De Laurentiis needs to be involved. Then of course we need a network to platform us.”
Fuller added: “I wish there was something that was definitive. I’ve had conversations with Hugh and Mads and the cast, in terms of like, ‘This is what we would do if we were allowed to come back.’ There are some ideas that I’m very excited about that continue the strange trajectory of season 3. But I have not been approached.”
Thomas Harris’ The Silence of the Lambs is owned by MGM, so that story and Clarice Starling aren’t in the cards. That said, are you still up for Hannibal season four? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram!
