More Hannibal? Who wants it? I know that I do. Yes, season 3 ended in a fairly satisfying way, but movieplot.com just released an interview with Hugh Dancy who plays Will Graham in the ground breaking series and basically, don’t get your hopes up for new episodes any time soon.
“My feeling is that, knock on wood, if it came around again, it wouldn’t be a bad thing for it to be four or five years later. That might actually be kind of interesting. How weird would that be, on a personal level, to find yourself back with those people? ‘So… where did we leave off?’”
So, if Dancy gets his way, we can look forward to new episodes in about 2020…not the news I was hoping for.
The reason for the hiatus, according to Dancy, is that creator Bryan Fuller wants to avoid delving in to Silence of the Lamb’s territory.
Fuller, had initially intended for the show cycle to fill seven seasons, but saw impending cancellation and wrapped up the show in three. Hopefully the future sees more episodes of Hannibal coming, but if we are lucky enough to get that, it won’t be right away, and it won’t be what we are expecting.
