It’s been 2 years since NBC canceled it’s psychological thriller series Hannibal. Streaming services Amazon Video and Netflix were asked to pick up the show, but declined.
The show’s executive producers Bryan Fuller and Martha De Laurentiis have “started conversations” about reviving the show, but it still may be a while before we see it.
During an interview with Collider in 2016, Fuller stated that the show’s producers couldn’t start exploring revival options until two years after the series finale.
“August 2017 is when we can actually start talking about it,” he explained. “That’s when we would have to see what the rights are for the character and for the story, and see who’s interested and how we get it done.”
Well it’s August 2017 so will we have a revival?
“Conversations couldn’t start until 2 years after the final airing of season 3,” Fuller wrote on Twitter earlier this week, in response to a request for news about Hannibal. “@neoprod has started those conversations. This takes time.”
Earlier this year while on Mick Garris podcast Post Mortem Fuller made this statement.
“I have conversations with (Hannibal executive producer) Martha De Laurentiis. I have conversations with Mads and Hugh. We’re are all excited about the prospect of returning to the story. There’s some hurdles to get through… [But] I just had a great idea for season 4. There’s an interesting next chapter in the relationship between Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter that would be fascinating to unpack. I’ve shared it with the gentlemen and they’re both keen on it.”
How do you feel about a possible Hannibal revival?
