It became quickly apparent in the week s and months after Hannibal’s NBC demise that its top-tier talent wouldn’t stay unemployed for long, potentially threatening a revival. Creator Bryan Fuller is game for a miniseries when Silence of the Lambs rights revert this year, though star Hugh Dancy thinks it’d take significantly longer to see Hannibal again.

Now that Rogue One has everyone (rightly) fawning over Mads Mikkelsen again, it’s worth wondering where Bryan Fuller stands on a fourth season of Hannibal, given his tightening schedule of late. A new interview sees the former showrunner clarifying the characters and format of a potential revival, which could explore Silence of the Lambs after all.

Mads Mikkelsen has always been good at playing bad. He’s turned human organs into dinner party delicacies, whipped a naked Daniel Craig with a giant rope, and tortured by Rihanna for his infidelities. Now the Danish actor can add one more evil deed to his acting resume: creator of the Death Star.

Boy, that was quick. 2016 Emmy nominees were announced this morning, and special presenters Lauren Graham and (a very excitable) Anthony Anderson wasted no time in revealing this year’s crop of nominees. While there was rightfully plenty of love to go around for dramas like The People v. O.J. Simpson and Mr. Robot, and comedy faves Veep and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, there were a few disappointments — namely, where the hell is UnREAL?! Or The Leftovers? Come on, Emmys.

The likelihood of Hannibal Season 4 seems to get dimmer with each day removed from that cliff-diving finale, but according to Bryan Fuller, our chances are actually improving. Busy though he, Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy remain, Fuller says the possibility may again open up in late 2017.

At this point, even die-hard Hannibal fans know that it would take some years for any kind of revival, given Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy and Bryan Fuller’s increasingly complex schedules, though many would presume a condensed film effort would help broaden prospects. Intriguingly, however, Mikkelsen would much prefer Hannibal remain as episodic TV than any kind of one-off movie.

The prospect of a Hannibal future seems farther and farther each day, with Bryan Fuller split between American Gods and Star Trek, and its stars all off in their own galaxy, though fans well know the most fertile ground left to cover would be that of Silence of the Lambs. Rights issues made it impossible before, but Mads Mikkelsen claims NBC was close at the time of Hannibal’s cancellation.

Hulu’s first trailer for The Path gave us a peek at Hugh Dancy’s next role, though many a Hannibal fan keeps hope that Bryan Fuller will one day reunite Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen for another chapter. Fuller has long kept vague on the mystery plot to a potential fourth season, though Dancy gave some tantalizing clues that “took us back to the first season.”
