We still don’t know who will star in American Gods, the TV adaptation of Neil Gaiman‘s novel which marks the major post-Hannibal project for producer Bryan Fuller. Now we do know, however, that the Starz series will bring another veteran of Fuller’s last series into the fold. Hannibal director and exec producer David Slade is signing on to helm the pilot of the new series, and it sounds like he’ll be just as involved in American Gods as he was with Hannibal. Read More »
Hannibal is over. Here’s a hankie to dry your tears. Oh, sorry, that one has blood on it, try this one instead. But what if… Hannibal wasn’t really over? What if there could be a movie? That’s the sort of thing that cold-hearted series creator Bryan Fuller is talking about right now, and even though that’s the sort of thing he’s been talking about for a while, fans of the departed show might be happy to know that producers are still thinking about ways to continue the story.
Fuller says in an interview that “[producer] Martha De Laurentiis is looking into financing for a feature film,” and that while the odds are low — less than 50/50 — they’re still trying to work things out. There are even more comments out there about what a fourth season might have been, too, which will give people ideas to chew on while dreaming of that movie or new mini-series or whatever.
Note that spoilers for the end of Hannibal season three follow. Read More »

Bryan Fuller may not be quite at George R.R. Martin‘s level when it comes to killing off beloved characters, but Hannibal is still a show about a serial killer. It should come as no surprise that from time to time, characters get shot in the face, chopped into pieces, or braised in a nice wine sauce.
What is shocking is that sometimes, those characters nevertheless find ways to come back. At the Hannibal Comic-Con panel Thursday, Fuller confirmed the returns of two fan favorite characters believed to be dead. Hit the jump to find out who, and to get some more details on Hannibal Season 3. (Be aware the spoilers follow.)
Update: We’ve added video of the full Comic Con panel (minus footage clips) for Hannibal.
