Hannibal Season 4, a psychological thriller series is highly being anticipated to return to the screens once more. Based on the characters and elements from various Thomas Harris’ novels, it is about the relationship between FBI investigator Will Graham and a forensic psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lecter. Their relationship is somewhat special as Graham is the most cunning enemy but is also the only one to understand him.
Every season was critically acclaimed and received various awards for being the best series and for the cast’s stellar performance. However, despite this, there’s been no concrete news whether it’ll return with the fourth season. There’s been much talk going on that Hannibal could take some time to return.
Nevertheless, in this whole dilemma situation, here’s what we know so far about the latest updates on Hannibal Season 4.
Hannibal Season 4 – Renewal Status
The third season of Hannibal concluded in August 2015 and since then, fans have been waiting to get another season of it. NBC canceled the show after three seasons due to the low ratings.
However, the showrunners remained hopeful and had initiated talks with Amazon Video and Netflix for a renewal. Even the casts such as Mikkelsen and Dancy have expressed their desire to work again and to continue this story.
While many continue to enjoy episodes on Netflix after a deal worked out between them, we are being hopeful for the world’s biggest streaming service to be the home for Hannibal Season 4. So as Fuller has shown hope on Twitter about no one giving up on a new season, the fans should be rest assured to hear good news in the near future.
Hannibal Season 4 – Cast Details
As everyone is eager to revisit Will Graham and Hannibal, there’s a very good chance of finding a new home soon. So when that happens, expect to see most key players returning as Fuller has mentioned that most of them are willing to work for another season.
Mads Mikkelsen will return as Hannibal Lecter, without whom Hannibal won’t happen. Other returnees would include – Hugh Dancy as Will Graham, Gillian Anderson as Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier, Caroline Dhavernas as Alana Bloom, and Laurence Fishburne as Jack Crawford.
Hannibal Season 4 – Expected Plot
The previous seasons have been adapted from Red Dragon and Hannibal, and Bryan Fuller is hopeful for returning with another famous novel by Thomas Harris titled ‘Silence of the Lambs’. However, there have been issues about securing rights. As of now, there’s been no definite plan of this adaptation happening soon, but we do know that the format is already in Fuller’s mind.
So season 4 would re-examine the relationship between Hannibal and Will Graham in a new light. Expect a total reinvention of the series.
