Hugh Dancy Talks Hannibal, What Season 4 Might Have Looked Like
During the Television Critics Association Panel while promoting his upcoming series The Path, Hugh Dancy discussed the season four that's not to be for Hannibal.
Bryan Fuller had late last year teased potential Silence of the Lambs storylines, but Dancy says that's probably not the case. "First of all, we didn't have the rights to SIlence of the Lambs. Bryan had described to me in a kind of overview what he wanted to do with the fourth season had there been one, and it was fantastic.
"It was really a complete restart in a way, without describing it, because who knows? God knows, maybe some day we'll get to do it in the future. I would love that but it took us bac, to the first season in a very unexpected way, but made total sense of that cliffhanger ending... it was borne out of a part of one of the books... but it wasn't the Clarice part of Silence of the Lambs.
"I think we would be very happy to return in some capacity," Dancy said of the potential film follow-up to the three-season long series. "How to fit that into a movie, I'm not sure. As I was saying, the version of the fourth season described to me maybe would work like that. I just know I'd like it to happen."
The Path premieres March 30 on Hulu.
