Of late, there have been talks on the renewal of Hannibal for the fourth season. Now the speculations are ripe with the latest word coming from Mads Mikkelsen, the lead actor in Hannibal. Fans have been waiting for a while, and there hasn’t been a word on it. Though the ending of the third season left enough space for renewing the series. There is no reason for not renewing the series.
Hannibal has successfully made a large fanbase, and there is no reason for disappointing the fans. So we should expect the fourth season is coming our way sooner than later. There are indications that the series will be renewed for the fourth reason. So let’s delve into the details and see what’s there for us in the fourth season of Hannibal.
What’s the current status of the fourth season of Hannibal?
Fans were up in arms when the series was canceled in 2015. It came as a huge disappointment for fans, and they didn’t seem to be ready to accept the cancellation. Even in 2015, a series of tweets flooded twitter for the fourth season. There were many posts shared on Facebook and Instagram. All these went in vain at that point. This is something where Netflix has a specialization. Needless to say that Netflix has one of the best content among all the OTTs. But Netflix keeps on canceling the shows even when they are high on popularity. Fans usually get disappointed with this as they were expecting more from the fourth season, and it was abruptly discontinued.
There are several reasons for discontinuation, and one of the most prominent reason is the analysis which Netflix does at the end of every season. There was confusion when CBS launched a new series titled Pretty Little Liars based on Thomas Harris’s novel. The series was seen as the one who will be taking over Hannibal. Amid all these things happening, Mads Mikkelsen came up with a new post, and this sparked a new row of speculations.
In the post, he wrote something which gave goosebumps to all the die-hard fans. He wrote that the series would be releasing on Netflix US in June. To put his quote verbatim, “Hannibal hits Netflix in June: Is Hannibal season 4 on the way?”. So this does indicate a possible renewal. This was a clear indication that the series is all set to be renewed for the fourth season. Had this info would have come from any other person there might have a chance of discrepancy.
This is not the first time since the past few months, and there have been words from others too. For instance, Showrunner Bryan Fuller also talked about the renewal and to put his tweet, “I’ve made it clear I want to do it, the cast wants to do it, and (executive producer) Martha (De Laurentiis) wants to do it,”. Once the details are announced by Netflix, we will update the page with relevant details.
