Bryan Fuller Reveals Neil Gaiman Will Write Episodes of AMERICAN GODS

     June 27, 2015


Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller has been asked a lot in the past week about the future of his hauntingly beautiful (but sadly low rated) NBC series, and while on the red carpet of the 41st Saturn Awards, we were able to find out a little more about that. But the biggest news may be regarding Fuller’s other current project, American Gods. He said “we are cranking away” at the first two scripts, and that author “Neil Gaiman is going to be writing episodes of the show,” so the new series “is going to have scope.”

Fuller also gives a ton of great information on the rest of Hannibal Season 3, saying that this next run of episodes features some of the “most bonkers” stuff the show has ever attempted. He also talks about how great it has been working with Richard Armitage, who will play Francis Dolarhyde, a.k.a. The Red Dragon. And, Fuller teases fans about his favorite death on the series (it’s coming up! And “it’s pretty gross”). Check out the full video below for all of these details and more:

After the awards (he picked up his trophy for Hannibal‘s Best Network Television Series win), Fuller said, “it’s wonderful to get the award after the cancellation,” but said every little bit will help with potentially getting the show renewed by some outlet for Season 4 (though that decision is ultimately “above [his] paygrade.”) He also said he accepted his award on behalf of all the Fannibals. Aww. Thanks, BF! Check out the video below for more:
