Hannibal Stars, EPs Preview a 'Smiling, Laughing' Will — and a 'Physically, Logistically Big' Finale

Whether or not a network (or streaming service) comes to Hannibal‘s rescue — or if a movie continuation is in the offing — showrunner Bryan Fuller has a plan.

There’s an arc in Thomas Harris’ source-material novels that’s never been adapted for the screen, and Fuller would like to “unpack it” for Hugh Dancy’s Will Graham and Mads Mikkelsen’s Dr. Lecter, he told Michael Ausiello at our Comic-Con video suite at the Hard Rock Hotel.

While the wily writer-producer refused to spill any further intel on his vision, the good news is that his leading man Hugh Dancy said he believes Hannibal‘s Season 3 finale — should it be the final destination of this twisted tale — is “a fitting one.” (Then again, that’s how Dancy said he felt about the Season 1 and Season 2 sendoffs, so make of that what you will.)
