Although NBC cancelled the fan-favorite series two years ago, showrunner Bryan Fuller has confirmed that talks have begun to bring the series back for a potential fourth season.
Fuller, who is busy with Starz’s American Gods currently, which was renewed for a second season, revealed the news on Twitter in a response to a fan’s question regarding news on the beloved series. According to him, talks couldn’t begin to bring the show back until two years following season three’s finale — those talks have officially begun.
Conversations couldn't start until 2 years after the final airing of season 3. @neoprod has started those conversations. This takes time.

This, of course, doesn’t necessarily mean the series will be back any time soon. After all, Fuller is more than busy showrunning American Gods. Still, fans of the show that have been eager to see it return should take solace in the fact that things do appear to be moving forward.
Fuller and the cast, including leading man Mads Mikkelsen, have been vocal about wanting to continue to tell the story Fuller had established, including his hopes to tackle the Silence of the Lambs arc. With talks taking place for a revival, Fuller may just get his wish.
Hannibal ran for three seasons on NBC and starred Mikkelsen as Dr. Hannibal Lecter, Hugh Dancy as Will Graham, Caroline Dhavernas as Dr. Alana Bloom, Laurence Fishburne as Jack Crawford, and Gillian Anderson as Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier.
