Hannibal writer says Bryan Fuller has 'great idea' for another season
"We're hoping we get to do it."
Nick Antosca would currently seem to have his plate full with horror anthology show Channel Zero, which he created and whose second season, No-End House, premieres on SYFY Wednesday. But Antosca remains hungry for a revival of Hannibal, Bryan Fuller’s canceled NBC cannibal-serial killer show on which he worked as writer and co-producer.
“I’ve heard there are talks,” he says. “I know Bryan Fuller has a great idea for what the fourth season would be and Bryan, Don Mancini (writer-producer), Steve Lightfoot (writer-executive producer), all those people — and me of course — are hoping that we get to do it. I know what the idea is — I mean, unless he’s changed it. He had a very cool idea that we would have done had he gotten another season.”
Antosca is echoing the words of Fuller himself, who earlier this year said he had a “great idea” for a fourth season of Hannibal during an appearance on director Mick Garris’ podcast Post Mortem. Last month, Fuller tweeted that “conversations” had started about a revival of the Thomas Harris adaptation, which starred Hugh Dancy as criminal profiler Will Graham and Mads Mikkelsen as the murderous gourmand Hannibal Lecter.
