Hannibal buzz has spelled plenty of doom and gloom in recent weeks, with Season 4 seeming less and less likely, though we at least have nine incredible hours to go in Season 3. And who better to testify to that, than “The Great Red Dragon“ himself? A new synopsis previews Hannibal’s adaptation of the classic Thomas Harris novel, but be warned of spoiling future episodes!
Hannibal fans have had an easy enough time keeping hope alive after NBC’s cancellation, what with universal praise and the potential for networks like Amazon to negotiate another course, but has time officially run out? Options on Hannibal’s cast have officially expired, making the ravenously-desired Season 4 renewal a much trickier prospect.
Heroes Reborn finally lifted the curtain a bit last week, confirming itself as an actual thing NBC is doing by a first trailer. Familiar faces were in short supply however, and now the new (and old!) Heroes have their own character posters to confirm that they too, were contractually hired to act in an actual Heroes revival. Let’s watch in horror, shall we?
Between Donald Trump, Confederate flags, Rachel Dolezal and marriage equality, it’s a painful time for SNL to be on hiatus. Thankfully, the NBC sketch comedy today bring us one step closer to September (okay, last September) with a cut sketch from the Season 40 premiere featuring Guardians of the Galaxy favorite Chris Pratt putting on his best Jason Statham.
The unending gift of Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential bid had many wondering if the billionaire’s Celebrity Apprentice had come to an end, and NBC has at last made the split official. Following Trump’s racist remarks causing a schism from Univision, NBC has completely severed any and all ties to Trump.
Jodie Foster has developed a strong directing career in recent years, including TV stops on both Orange is the New Black and House of Cards, but Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller hopes to return the Silence of the Lambs actress to more familiar territory. Should Hannibal live to dine another day on Season 4, might Jodie Foster herself introduce a new Clarice Starling?
Yes, NBC cancelled Hannibal, but we still have nine episodes left (after tonight’s “Aperitivo”) in Season 3, and there is still hope for Season 4, according to Bryan Fuller. So while we keep our fingers crossed and sit on the requisite pins and needles, let’s dive into tonight’s offering — “Aperitivo” is largely a table-setting episode (sorry), one that returns old friends and one particular enemy, tugging all the necessary threads into place so they can begin to unify.
After a vague announcement way back in February 2014, NBC’s Heroes has finally made good on its threat to return as the revived Heroes Reborn. No mere teaser, our first full footage sees plenty of heroes on the run, old and familiar faces alike, while the network’s full synopsis teases a major tragedy, and not just that Heroes Reborn is actually happening.
Much as Seth Meyers and Amy Poehler have gone on to kill it in Late Night and Inside Out respectively, the SNL fan in all of us will always miss their Weekend Update banter. Now, our own inner Joy can howl with delight, as the pair reunited on Late Night for a new incarnation of fan-favorite "Really!?!"
The shock of Hannibal’s NBC cancellation never quite set in, if only by seeming assurance another network would quickly devour a chance to produce Season 4. Now, series creator Bryan Fuller dissects the chances of Hannibal moving to Netflix or Amazon, when we might finally meet Clarice Starling, and how far the series might last overall.
