Hannibal left its fans back in 2015 when NBC temporarily put a hold on the show. The ghastly murder-mystery show has won millions of hearts in the decade. However, many don’t consider the entire series is worth watching. Well, it’s their perspective. But, Mikkelson’s recent Instagram post created a new ray of hope. He posted that the show would return to Netflix US in the next month.
Last year, Bryan Fuller, the showrunner of Hannibal, assured everyone that “No-one has given up on the idea of bringing Hannibal back somehow.” Further, he twitted: “I’ve made it clear I want to do it, the cast wants to do it, and executive producer Martha wants to do it. We just need a network or a streaming service that wants to do it, too. I don’t feel there’s a clock on it or an expiration date for the idea. We just need someone to bite.” Perhaps Netflix heard it and is now planning to renew Hannibal Season 4.

Hannibal Season 4: Silence Of The Lambs
Last year, Fuller revealed that he’s planning to bring Hannibal Season 4 as a movie to explain the cliffhanger ending and all the loose ends of the story. However, he has yet to announce whether Hannibal’s next installment would be an adaptation of “Silence of the Lambs” as a movie or series. He also explained what’s new will be there.
Fuller stated: “Just supposing, that back in the heyday of Hannibal as a psychiatrist. Perhaps even earlier than we met him the first time when he had Benjamin Raspail as a patient. And weaves the story in and around the modern-day.” Now, it could be possible that Hannibal Season 4 would pick this storyline. But they are still hoping to continue this in their short series format. Now, everything is based on viewership and rating the show will get. Let’s see how Fuller brings Hannibal this time.
