Sharpen those knives, Hannibal fans: Another meal might be coming your way after all.
Bryan Fuller — the man behind the bloody, beloved NBC thriller starring Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen that wrapped up in 2015 — whetted the appetites of Fannibal Nation this week by tweeting that “conversations” have officially begun about a Hannibal revival.
As Fuller says in the tweet, the rights to Hannibal were officially tied up for two years following the airing of the NBC series finale. But now executive producer Martha De Laurentiis “has started those conversations” about a possible Season 4, and De Laurentiis further fanned the flames by tweeting out a picture of her and Fuller together on Saturday.
Keep in mind: No network has signed on to air a fourth season of Hannibal, and even Fuller warns that “this takes time.” (He’s currently busy working on Starz’s American Gods.) Dancy, who played FBI profiler Will Graham on the series, told TVLine back in January that a revival might not happen for another “four or five years,” but he did add that “I believe everyone is willing” to revisit the cat-and-mouse game between Will Graham and serial killer Hannibal Lecter (Mikkelsen).
Fuller stated last year he’d like to bring Hannibal back as a miniseries depicting the events of Silence of the Lambs, the most famous Lecter tale of all: “There are a lot of interesting nooks and crannies to explore in a television series… I hope we get to tell the story.”

This week episode of Hannibal featured our Gillian, criptically in the dark and mysterious. Enjoy the over 100 HD screencaptures from the episode titled Contorno.
As the enigmatic Bedelia Du Maurier on NBC’s “Hannibal,” Gillian Anderson has the opportunity to play a character almost as fascinating as the titular cannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) himself, a woman who seemingly vacillates between accomplice, captive and enabler for her companion’s unusual urges depending on the day. As the two cut an increasingly bloody and reckless swath through Europe, they will once again draw the attention of many potential friends and foes in season three, including Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne).
Variety spoke to Anderson about Bedelia’s plans, “Hannibal” creator Bryan Fuller’s wicked dialogue, and how her character feels about the lingering influence of Will in Dr. Lecter’s life.
One of the things I most appreciate about Bedelia as a character is that you’re never quite sure where her loyalties lie, or how much she truly trusts Hannibal at any given moment. Obviously her internal workings are left purposefully opaque for the viewer so that she remains deliciously inscrutable, but from a technical perspective, when you approach her scenes, what would you say is motivating her on this journey with Hannibal?
I have trouble with this… [Laughs.] I think that it’s wonderful that she’s inscrutable to the audience, and I think that’s really important. I think we’re told too much these days about what to think and how to feel and know too much before we see it, and I think one of the things that intrigues me about some of the characters that I choose to play is that they’re enigmatic, and I like to keep them enigmatic. So talking about motivation is revealing my hand and revealing the hand of the character, and I don’t think that serves me, and it doesn’t serve the series.
That said, she’s in a very tricky situation. I think she is intrigued, and curious, and fearful, and I think she’s bitten off more than she can potentially chew, but I think that she has some kind of a plan, and as the season unravels, we’ll get to see what kind of a plan that might be, or whether she does actually have a specific plan or whether she’s just rolling with the punches.
