Bryan Fuller revealed details about “Hannibal” Season 4 plans and how “Silence of the Lambs” would look like in the series, and mind you, it’s definitely worth it! Read on for more details.
Back when the series’ Season 2 was still in the process, Fuller revealed his big plans for the show making fans so excited about it, so when it was reported that it was cancelled, many felt so frustrated! But, in his recent interview with HitFix, Fuller once again laid his plans for Season 4 (if it will ever happen).
In his interview, Fuller said that if ever “Hannibal” Season 4 will have its premiere, it will be like a restart and re-imagining, if not “Silence of the Lambs” itself (as a miniseries). The screenwriter expressed that he would love to return to his cast to the big screen from whence the characters came, from whence Dr. Hannibal Lecter came.
Fuller also teased the fans that in Season 4, the continuation and rebranding of Hannibal and Will Graham’s relationship will happen, and he’s very excited about it but since the show was cancelled, he felt so disappointed that the team wasn’t able to tell the story.
But, it didn’t stop him from forming a unique story for the series. In a report from Crave Online, he expressed that he likes to re-tell the story of “Silence of the Lambs” for “Hannibal” Season 4 even though he knows that they still don’t have the rights from MGM.
He said that he’s imagining a parallel structure of Hannibal in the institution with a very scared Frederick Chilton. He also imagined Hannibal’s character in his early days as a psychiatrist—during the time where he still had Benjamin Raspail as a patient. He wants to merge that story in and around the modern story of “Silence of the Lamb.”
Moreover, he also planned to bring back Miriam Lass character played by Anna Chlumsky and hoped for Lee Pace to be cast as Buffalo Bill.
When it comes to Clarice Starling, he eyes Ellen Page to play the role. He revealed an interesting twist about the fictional character by saying that he likes to explore her character from a different racial background where he wants the character to look like the show’s own signature character just like what they tried to make in Will Graham’s character.
In addition to this, when it comes to Will or if Hannibal would eye Clarice in the “Silence of the Lambs” season, he simply responded that it all depends on how the fourth season will end.
Well, it seems like there’s still many sides of the story that the series’ creator wants to explore, and the only thing that comes in the way for the viewers to see is its cancellation. But, no worries… as there’re rumors that “Hannibal” Season 4 could still have it’s comeback in the near future, we just have to wait and see what will happen.
