And lo, Hannibal has come to a very permanent-seeming end, closing out Season 3 with a redux of the Red Dragon arc that saw its two leads on a very literal cliffhanger, and another character losing quite a bit of limb. Continually optimistic about a movie wrap-up, creator Bryan Fuller talks his idea for Season 4 and the inevitable Silence of the Lambs treatment, which may or may not involve Ellen Page and David Bowie.
Back before NBC officially decided to renew the darkly delicious 'Hannibal' for season 2, series creator Bryan Fuller expressed a desire to cast glam rock legend David Bowie as Hannibal's oft-mentioned uncle, among other envisioned castings. Now, Fuller has reportedly extended an official offer to Bowie, and has another 'Pushing Daisies' alum in mind for the literary role of Barney!
Moderate though the ratings may be, we're extremely eager to see NBC's 'Hannibal' granted an additional season, especially after all the pickups the network handed out today. So while the first season bleeds on, would you believe that series creator Bryan Fuller wants music legend David Bowie to play a major role in 'Hannibal' season 2? Find out if Ziggy Stardust will end up on a plate inside!
