Bryan Fuller reflects on the end of Hannibal: “I wrote the last scene with Hugh Dancy”

“It was a challenge in other ways, but the relationship that I had with Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy and crafting that world was unique for me. I had true creative partners in those actors, who made my work better.

I guess I just can’t get over the fact that...

Bryan and Hugh wrote the lines of the last scene with each other, and then together Mads and Hugh created the whole feel of it, and I think we can all agree that scene is one of all of our favorites. It was just such a beautiful, collaborative effort and a real love letter to us, and the characters, and themselves, and reflects on just how much we all really grew together. The show needed us and we needed the show, and we gave to the show and the show gave to us, and within in the show they all gave to each other creatively. 

BASICALLY, Hannibal is just really like nothing else that exists. When we went to The Path panel at Paley, the showrunner felt so against the notion of this collab thing, and I know that’s how it is in most cases.  Writers don’t want comments from their actors, and then, mostly actors don’t care enough to want to think about it, just want to accept what’s written. And no one really wants to hear it from the fans most of the time.

“The last scene of Hannibal, I wrote with Hugh,” he told us. “We were talking about how we needed to land this story between these two men - and I would say a line, and he would say a line, and I would just write it all down, so we really wrote that scene together.” -Bryan

When I think about Hugh and Bryan writing the final scene together my heart hurts. Can’t believe it’s been a year!

Me: worries that an American Gods series run by Bryan Fuller with such an amazing cast is too perfect of a thing to possibly exist in this wretched garbage reality, and the world is going to end before it can air.

“The tear is actually Hannibal’s, because you come back from that tear and you see Jack is not crying. So that’s to suggest that Hannibal did have a genuine, authentic emotional attachment to Bella, and he was absolutely sincere when he wrote this note to Jack.”

“Bringing ‘Star Trek’ back to television means returning it to its roots, and for years those roots flourished under Bryan’s devoted care,” said executive producer Alex Kurtzman. “His encyclopedic knowledge of ‘Trek’ canon is surpassed only by his love for Gene Roddenberry’s optimistic future, a vision that continues to guide us as we explore strange new worlds.”

The creative plan is for the series to introduce new characters and civilizations, existing outside of the mythology charted by previous series and the current movie franchises.
