Dancy played FBI investigator Will Graham opposite Mads Mikkelsen’s Dr. Hannibal Lecter for three seasons until NBC cancelled the series last year.
When asked if he would participate in a Hannibal revival, Dancy said he would “love that”:
Oh, totally. Bryan [Fuller] has got plenty on his plate and everybody is busy, which is fantastic, but I think we’re in a place where we can say, “Okay, let’s see what happens in four years.” If we’re able to revisit it, maybe it would be different. I don’t know what shape it would take. I’ve said many times, and it’s completely true, that I would love that. If we were able to come back, maybe taking a few years away for it to reform itself might be the best thing that could happen for it. I certainly think it’s warranted, just by where we got to in the story. Sure, you could start a fourth season, or whatever it would be, with a big splash and see what happens when they hit the water, but I think it would be more interesting to find them a few years down the line.”
Currently, Dancy stars in Hulu’s new drama series, The Path, alongside Aaron Paul and Michelle Monaghan.
What do you think? Were you a fan of Hannibal? Would you watch a reboot of the cancelled series?
