Last time we spoke you were describing the ongoing rights issues with MGM and Silence of the Lambs – are you any further along in those conversations than you were then?
Bryan Fuller: “Well, we’re gonna do another full-court press when I get back into Los Angeles, in considerations of a fourth season, if that is to be. But actually the way we end the third season – and we end every season as though it’s the last one, so it sort of has to function in two ways – one that it’s a finale for the audience that feels somewhat satisfying, even if it is a cliffhanger, and also painting ourselves into a corner with the storyline that actually, in a great way, blows up all of the intentions of the previous seasons and reinvents them.
“So if there is a fourth season, it will be probably our most ambitious and most serialised that we’ve done thus far, and really the first half of season three was a great experiment of ‘does this work on our show?’ It turns out for me anyway, as an audience member and Fannibal, I loved it.
