"Hannibal" just ended and there is still no news of its renewal for season four in other networks and platforms. However, fans continue to dream and showrunner, Bryan Fuller dreams with them — even sharing his story ideas should the show be renewed.
Executive producer, Martha De Laurentiis, is vocal about adapting the "Hannibal" series into a movie, but fans are still calling for a season four renewal, either on Netflix or Amazon (or any other digital-only platforms). Creator and showrunner, Fuller, seem to agree and he proves that by showing that he has not quite given up on the possibility.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, where he discussed the series finale, Fuller said that he hopes to be given a chance to explore more of Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) and Will Graham's (Hugh Dancy) world. He pointed that there are still some aspects of the novel that he wishes he can share with the audience.
Asked which stories he still wants to explore either in a movie continuation or in a new season, he simply answered, "There is something in the novel 'Hannibal' that has not been done in any of the adaptations and I would love to explore that with Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter. I'm hoping that someday, whether it's a year from now ... two years from now ... that we will continue to get to tell that story. I feel like if Will Graham did survive that plunge, his most interesting chapter is yet to be told."
Aside from a film, Fuller thinks a miniseries continuing the season's story arc will be interesting. He also added that there is now "an opportunity for a rebirth of sorts."
"Hannibal" closed its NBC chapter in a way that makes it really open for a continuation. As the creator highlighted, there is no one way to assume whether either character has breathed their final breath.
The future of "Hannibal" does hang by a thread but there is still hope, so long as the people behind it do not give up on a series renewal or a new film adaptation. Stay tuned for further updates.
