The Hannibal reunion you did Not see coming
According to Thomas Harris’ books, Hannibal follows FBI profiler Will Graham, a genius with a penchant for understanding psychopathic murderers. The series was critically acclaimed, earning a Rotten Tomatoes score for its season before being canceled due to low ratings in 2015. The premature ending of the award-winning psychological thriller is considered one of TV mistakes. Fuller and the cast have long-supported a return if the stars aligned for everybody involved.
Unlike other shows that largely vanish in the TV ether after obtaining the cancelation ax, the fourth season of Hannibal has been on Fuller’s to-do list since the ending of the series’s three-year run. It nearly happened, also, in the months after the series dropped . The series was shopped by fuller to Amazon and Netflix, but equally sellers finally passed. Unable to continue conversations due to an exclusive streaming deal with Amazon, the immediate revival of the show eventually fell after talks with the Netflix competitor also halted in weeks prior to the cast’s contracts expired. Fuller revealed that he had turned down an offer in the digital distributor after they couldn’t agree on how much time he’d get to work on scripts in advance of filming.
While Fuller and Hannibal‘s cast have continued to affirm their interest in the series through the years, serious talk of its possible return was again revived in 2020 after Netflix added the series to its library with one noticeable difference. We’ll have to settle for the Zoom reunion as the next best thing, until some streamer eventually makes season 4 a reality.
