Mads Mikkelsen Wore a Fannibal Flower Crown at Silicon Valley Comic Con

Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen is the most recent gent to portray the fictional character Dr. Hannibal Lecter, and has arguably spent the most time (consecutively) portraying the not-so-good doctor. This is something of which Mikkelsen is highly aware, and boy-howdy does he know how to appease the rabid Hannibal fanbase (aka Fannibals). All photos in this piece […]

Did Bryan Fuller Exit American Gods for Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles?

Fans of Anne Rice‘s The Vampire Chronicles were excited when the author announced in 2016 that she had reclaimed the rights to her novels, writing on her Facebook page at the time, “A television series of the highest quality is now my dream for Lestat, Louis, Armand, Marius, and the entire tribe.” With Rice’s son, novelist and columnist Christopher Rice, […]

Before They Were Gods: Our Halloween Edition With Ricky Whittle

For American Gods fans, it’s still a very “plus/minus” time that’s tough to reconcile. On the plus side, they feel great knowing that Starz renewed the series for a second season that’s expected to begin filming January 2018. On the minus side, they find themselves stuck knee-deep in the long haul that is…The Wait Between […]

An Interview With Gillian Anderson at New York Comic Con

(Editor’s Note: Bleeding Cool staffer Danielle Mick reporting from New York Comic Con and speaking with X-Files star Gillian Anderson.) When I arrived for the X Files press room after a moment of fangirling, I was immediately blown away by Gillian Anderson’s beauty and presence. She carried herself with an air of grace and importance, not […]

A BC October: Bryan Fuller On ‘Hannibal’ Murder NBC Wouldn’t Allow

NBC‘s Hannibal was one of those shows that you had to keep reminding yourself was actually a network show, and not a product of a premium cable channel (HBO, Showtime) or streaming service (Netflix, Amazon). Originally running from 2013-2015, Bryan Fuller‘s take on FBI profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and cannibalistic serial killer Dr. Hannibal […]

Bryan Fuller Has Confirmed That Talks Have Begun For Hannibal Season 4

Hannibal was one of the best shows on television, period. Like most great television shows it didn’t get its due and was canceled not long before it won a Saturn Award.

But even in the midst of […]


Hugh Dancy Says Hannibal Might Return But Could Benefit From 4 Or 5 Year Break

There has been some talk circulating about Hannibal of late. It seems showrunner Bryan Fuller wants the show to return semi-infrequently for little mini-series around the characters. Well, Will Graham himself, Hugh Dancy doesn’t seem adverse to the idea either, although he did say he might prefer it to be a couple years from now. […]

Showrunner Wants Hannibal Series To Continue As Occasional Mini-Series

Bryan Fuller‘s Hannibal was quite something. The series has an incredibly dedicated fan base, and while it never lit the viewing figures on fire, it survived for three good series. Still, many certainly wish there was more to the show to come despite it being cancelled. It seems Fuller agrees. Speaking on Blumhouse’s Shock Waves Podcast (via ScreenCrush), […]

Hannibal’s Odds Of Finding A New Home Get Worse

Seems Television series no longer fade away quietly after being cancelled. We saw it with Constantine earlier this year; producers of a series shopping a show around after it got the ax from their original network.
