Bryan Fuller has offered an update on the status of Hannibal‘s search for a new home following last night’s rather conclusive (yet slightly open-ended) series finale.
Speaking to TVGuide, Fuller confirmed that the show is still eyeing a feature film continuation, though he remains more cagey on the prospect of a fourth season revival following earlier knock-backs from Amazon and Netflix, and the expiration of cast contracts:
The conversations at this point are [producer] Martha De Laurentiis is still investigating financing a feature film. We’re trying to do that as well as get feedback from the audience of: Are you satisfied? Are you done with this story? If the audience is done with this story, then I will be done with this story. If the audience wants more, then I would love to give them more because I feel the most interesting chapter of Will Graham’s story is yet to be told.
On whether he feels that the Season 3 finale definitively represents the last in the series:
I think it has more of a series finale vibe to it because the show is canceled. [Laughs] I think if you were watching it [thinking] that there was going to be a fourth season, there would be a different interpretation of events and an excitement of, “Oh God, how are they going to paint themselves out of this corner?” The intent to end it in this manner never changed the trajectory of [wanting to do] a Season 4.
