It's been two years since NBC's Hannibal concluded, yet the
show still refuses to exit the minds of its dedicated fanbase, entertainment
journalists, and, most importantly, its creator. When the season three finale
of Hannibal (which would also prove to be the series finale) aired in
2015, no one was really ready for the show to end, least of all Bryan Fuller.
Fuller had much more planned out and fought tooth and nail to keep the show running, to no avail. Even so, he still hasn't given up hope. He is
constantly talking about a potential revival and how great he
believes it could be. Moreover, he also has a good amount of support in the
matter, which makes sense considering the quality of the show.
It's undeniable that another season of Hannibal would be more than welcome for
fans, but unfortunately, it's not that cut and dry. Sure, there are plenty of
reasons why a revival would work out, but there are also a few obstacles the
show would have to overcome along the way.
Let's weigh both sides of the issue, starting with the reasons it should return.
A film-loving wrestling fan from west Texas who will live and die by the statement that Return of the Jedi is the best Star Wars movie and unironically cherishes the brief moment and time when Deuce & Domino were WWE Tag Team Champions. Hates honey, but loves honey mustard.
