‘Hannibal’ Star Hugh Dancy Explains Why Season 4 May Never Happen

For its fans, Hannibal was a show that had everything going for it. However, even though the series has been canceled and fans have been burning and desperate to find out what happened next, the show’s leading man Hugh Dancy has just made a statement that may have cooled the excitement for Hannibal Season 4. Hugh Dancy, one of the stars of the show, recently spoke about this possibility in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. Dancy explained to ET that, because Hannibal has such a devoted fanbase and is so complex, it would just be hard for new seasons to live up to their standards. “I think the show, for all of its fans, does have quite a few and has incredibly high standards. And I think if we were to do a fourth season and we had less attention or less appetite from people who watch the show, I don’t know how excited we would be to do that.
