Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller endorses a fan petition calling for season 4 to finally happen. Thomas Harris first created the indelible character of Hannibal Lecter in his 1981 novel Red Dragon.

Lecter would later achieve iconic pop culture status thanks to Anthony Hopkins’ chilling portrayal in the Oscar-winning 1991 film The Silence of the Lambs.

Hopkins’ depiction of Lecter indeed for a long time seemed like an indisputably definitive portrayal. Then along came the NBC show Hannibal, starring Mads Mikkelsen as Lecter.

Drawing on story elements from various Lecter-centered works, Hannibal became a critical darling and grew a passionately loyal but unfortunately small fan following.
