Hannibal's season finale will set the series up for a multi-year break, if necessary.
NBC gave the cannibalistic series the axe early this summer and, failing to land a season 4 offer with any other networks, Hannibal may have to redub its season finale as a series finale. If so, series creator Bryan Fuller believes fans will be satisfied.
"Yes. Absolutely," Fuller told Entertainment Weekly. "It's totally designed that way."
Fuller, however, is prepared for all eventualities, including the possibility that a renewal could come several years from now.
"When everybody's like, 'Oh my God, what about the fourth season, what about the fourth season?' You're like, "Just watch the finale first,'" Fuller said, according to Entertainment Weekly. "Because the finale ends in a way that the show could lie fallow for a couple of years."
Meanwhile, were still waiting on a Pushing Daisies revival.
Titled "Wrath of the Lamb," Saturday's episode will see Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) make a dangerous play to bring down the Red Dragon (Francis Dolarhyde). As Graham pulls Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) into his plan, Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) will worry that the profiler will put everyone in danger.
Hannibal airs Saturdays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
