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.”

A few weeks back, Hulu finally pulled back the veil over The Path, a new cult drama from Parenthood creator Jason Katims, starring Breaking Bad breakout Aaron Paul, Hannibal star Hugh Dancy, and True Detective alum Michelle Monaghan. Now, the first trailer has finally arrived, looking just as intense and worthy of all three.
Yesterday saw Hulu releasing its first official photos of Jason Katims’ 2016 religious drama The Path, but like all cults, secrets rarely stay buried for long. Even more photos have arrived of Hannibal alum Hugh Dancy, Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul and True Detective alum Michelle Monaghan, as well as new details of the March premiere.
Hulu’s original programming pedigree is certainly growing, and Jason Katims’ 2016 religious drama The Path may be its biggest breakthrough yet. Our first photos of Hannibal alum Hugh Dancy, Breaking Bad breakout Aaron Paul and True Detective player Michelle Monaghan has arrived, along with new intel to put us along The Path toward a March premiere.
Amid all the Hannibal news of late, we’d known that Hugh Dancy and Breaking Bad alum Aaron Paul would headline Hulu religious drama The Way with Michelle Monaghan, and at last we know where The Path will begin. In addition to a name-change, Hulu has set a March 2016 premiere for the Jason Katims drama, along with its first teaser.
The release of Hannibal Season 3 on Blu-ray has served a banquet unto itself, between revelations of who cooked that finale leg, and our own full interview with Bryan Fuller, but one particular aspect of the finale has had fans salivating for months. See the alternate take of Hannibal’s big finale cliffhanger that nearly saw Will and our beloved Dr. Lecter locking lips!
One of television’s goriest and most cinematic (b)romances came to an end this year when the Season 3 finale of Hannibal served as the series finale (at least for now). It felt like a suitable ending when (spoiler alert) Hugh Dancy’s Will and Mad Mikkelsen’s Hannibal killed the Red Dragon together followed by a literal cliffhanger that saw the pair falling off a cliff in full-embrace. It was gloriously bloody, emotional and gorgeous, all the elements that made Hannibal one of the most stunning and daring shows on network TV.
More than any before it, Hannibal Season 3 leaned on the written word of franchise author Thomas Harris, particularly Red Dragon, occasionally adapting entire exchanges and scenes to fit the renewed context of Bryan Fuller’s twisted love story. One scene in particular between Hannibal and Will splashes right off the page in all three filmed adaptations, captured in a new mashup of Hannibal, Red Dragon and Manhunter.
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.
Hannibal may yet enjoy his last meal later on tonight with the airing of Season 3 finale “The Wrath of the Lamb” (or on Saturday for American viewers), and we may have a taste of the fourth season. Our beloved cannibal appears to be on the lam (heh) once more in a new trailer for the Season 3 finale.
