Feast on this, Fannibals - season 4 has a time line.
Hannibal's departure from NBC and it's subsequent failure to find a new outlet left fans down and out as season 3 came to a close. Now, several months later, series creator Bryan Fuller has announced his intentions for a fourth season.
"We are discussing what it would look like...We will try again in a little over a year-and-a-half," Fuller said on Sunday, according to The Dinner Party Show podcast. "I know exactly what we would do with the story. We would make another run at Silence of the Lambs."
Fuller comments come just days after Mads Mikkelsen (Dr. Lecter) opened up about the series' future to Collider. Mikkelsen, who is currently tied to Doctor Strange and Rogue One for undisclosed roles, noted that a full season would be the best outlet for the rest of the cannibal's tale.
"I think the way that we've worked so far has been thriving on the pace that we had. We did not have to tell stories really fast or develop characters really fast," Mikkelsen explained. "It could have its own pace, and I think that suits the show tremendously. I have a hard time seeing a film that could wrap that up, but never say never."
In the meantime, viewers can dig into the season 3 DVD just in time for the holidays.
