When NBC’s “Hannibal” left with a literal and figurative smile, audiences were clamoring to know what’s next for the impressive serial killer series that is really going to need to grow in audience to stay on air.
TV Guide chatted with series creator Bryan Fuller, who commented a bit on what we’ll see in Will Graham’s (Hugh Dancy) future come the second season in 2014.
“He will be incarcerated, and we will be dealing with all of the threads of that,” Fuller stated. “We need to see all of the things happen that would happen in that scenario. Will Graham needs to go on trial for the murders that he may or may not have committed. Jack has to be brought before a review board for his participation in what happened to Will, and Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen), as Will’s psychiatrist, is going to continue to try to help Will see the truth that Hannibal wants him to see. The ball is up in the air in so many ways for Jack and Hannibal and Will. The fun of Season 2 will be spiking those balls.”
Those who caught the finale are wondering, does Will now know he was set up by Hannibal? Was Hannibal’s sly smile a tipping point? Man, I can’t wait until the next season!
