Bryan Fuller promotes ‘Hannibal’ season as ‘bastardized two novels’

Fans of Hannibal are excited to hear that a third season is indeed coming and now Bryan Fuller, the creator behind the show, reveals some overall plans for the series and how it is laid out for six total seasons.

“Well, as we’ve gotten further into this series, I’ve collapsed a couple of seasons in my mind now,” Fulller says of his vision, which was originally seven seasons long, during his new May 27 interview with Collider.

“As in, ‘I don’t think we would be able to sustain the 13 episodes for that arc that I thought we would have’ and ‘perhaps it’s better to collapse this season and this season into one.’ So, I’m really thinking a six-season arc, and that really keeps us from treading water.”

Season three will continue to tie into the Thomas Harris books as Fuller tells TV Guide that he plans to draw from two different books.

“Season 3 is going to be a lot of fun because it’s going to be taking a lot of disparate elements from the novel Hannibal Rising and the novel Hannibal and mashing them up together as part of the thrust of the season. It’s going to be fun to bastardize two novels into one sort of Frankenstein season. I will brace everybody right now: We’re significantly changing the Hannibal origin story from Hannibal Rising.”

Fuller has also stated his intention to revisit the Vergers, so check out the full interview HERE
