Bryan Fuller was recently at the 41st Saturn Awards, and spoke to Collider about Hannibal and American Gods. Sadly, he didn’t have any solid news about the future of Hannibal, although they are still looking for a new home for the dark (literally and figuratively) series, but he does say that he wasn’t really surprised. He mentions Richard Armitage’s arc coming up, and says that the end of the season will act “as a finale of sorts” so that we don’t have to worry about any big cliff-hangers.
The other big news is that he mentions his work with American Gods and says specifically that Neil Gaiman will be writing some episodes. I’m pretty happy about this, because while I like Hannibal I feel like there is occasionally some friction between Thomas Harris’s style and Bryan Fuller’s. While Gaiman’s tone is a little closer to Fuller’s, I am glad that he’ll be around and involved enough to keep it more true to the original novel. Here’s the interview:
