Following the news reports earlier today about CBS greenlighting the Silence of the Lamb spin-off series “Clarice“, fans have taken to social media with #SaveHannibal in an attempt to breathe new life into the “Hannibal” series that was canceled back in 2015 after three seasons.
Fans refuse to give hope that Bryan Fuller’s series adaptation of “Silence of Lambs” will return with stars Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy. Who could blame them? The series was a fantastic, dark, fascinating journey into the mind of a cannibal psychiatrist (Mikkelsen) and his relationship with a young profiler named Will Graham (Dancy).
Fuller took to Twitter this afternoon to give his thoughts on the “Clarice“/”Hannibal” situation.
Martha (De Laurentiis) & I tried many times to work with MGM to include Clarice into our Hannibal story. They ultimately told us they had their own plans for Clarice and they didn’t need Hannibal to tell her story.“ Fuller continued, “Don’t think this impacts a potential #HANNIBAL S4 as we never had Clarice rights.”
“Clarice” will center on agent Clarice Starling who worked with Doctor Hannibal Lecter in the classic “The Silence of the Lambs”. The series will pick up one year after the film’s events and will follow Clarice as she returns to hunting killers.
If you want to see “Hannibal” revived, state your case or show your love and use #SaveHannibal like these fans did:
