As iSchoolGuide reported, director of the hit TV Series “Hannibal“, Bryan Fuller, revealed that NBC has made a decision to end the series during the San Diego 2015 Comic-Con. And while many may debate whether or not the show offers a “happy” ending for these characters, the final image feels like an accurate and appropriate summation of the show that preceded it. Hannibal himself (Mads Mikkelsen) was both the hook and the wild card, a slight deviation from the formula to separate his namesake show from the herd.
As “Hannibal” Season 3’s final episode is fast approaching, spoilers indicate that Will, the lamb, might be able to turn the tables and defeat the Red Dradon this coming Saturday.
Well, the twist here is that Will seems to have little to no interest in actually following through on this plan, and specifically wants to use this as a chance to also take Hannibal down once and for all.
Hannibal airs Saturdays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC. “This finale wraps up the television series in a really good way and also is a platform for launching a new version of telling the story”, Fuller said in his talk with Entertainment Weekly.
Francis Dolarhyde (Richard Armitage) kidnapped and tortured Chilton (Raul Esparza) in the penultimate episode of Hannibal. Upon learning of his plan, Bedelia Du Maurier voices concerns that Will’s actions may not only put his life in peril, but the lives of those around him.
The way the finale will end should give viewers reason to hope for another season, even if it means moving to another network. But fans are content with the knowledge that whatever happens, the show did its best to remain true to the vision and essence of Thomas Harris’ novels, albeit with some interesting and well-played changes.
I’m not going to downplay Hannibal’s haunting and disturbing scenes, which often come as Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne), the agent in charge of the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit, investigates the aftermath of some particularly peculiar crimes with the help of FBI profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), psychiatry professor Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas), and forensic psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen).
The series finale of “Hannibal” is set to air on August. 29 on NBC.
