Collider’s Steve Weintraub interviewed Hannibal creator and showrunner, Bryan Fuller, at the 42nd Saturn Awards in Burbank California.
There Bryan Fuller expressed that he and the rest of the cast would love to continue the story of the cancelled series.
The cast is game, I’m game, it’s just a matter of finding the right time where everybody’s schedules sync up, but I would love to continue to tell the story with Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen. They’re such a fantastic collaborators, and one of the most satisfying actor-showrunner relationships I’ve ever had in this industry. So I would love to continue this story.
Bryan Fuller also stated when they’d start evaluating their options.
Two years after the last airing of the show, we can investigate our options […] August 2017 is when we can actually start talking about it. 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. I have the story, and the cast is excited for the story, so we’re ready to go if somebody wants to go.
He also said a movie is an option instead, but he’d prefer doing it as a show. Regardless, as a huge fan of the series, this needs to happen. The season 3 finale was actually a very satisfying end for the series, but it would still be great to see Bryan Fuller’s vision for the show get completed. At least we have the new Star Trek show and American Gods coming from him until then.
Would you be interested in seeing the show come back, or have you moved on by now? We’ll be sure to update you on this as soon as any info becomes available.
