Well, Well, Well! A lot of hints and talks about season 4 by its makers and cast have given the fans a ray of hope. After NBC canceled Hannibal, it was difficult to expect a new season but Fuller, the show creator has come up with clear answers about the show’s release date.
Back in 2015, in 2017, and 2019, we have heard the words from show creators that season 4 is under discussion. But as we know that since last year there has been no official update about season 4.
As soon as Hannibal streamed on Netflix, there was a huge fanbase emerging for the series within no time, showing how desperately fans have been waiting for season 4.
Watching this immense rise in popularity, Mads Mikkelsen finally spoke about his and Fuller’s interest in the revival of Hannibal Season 4. And also, that it can be expected by 2022.
Wuhu!! That’s good news!
Hannibal Season 4 Cast!
Hannibal has always come up with a colorful cast and characters. We have seen many characters that left the series too early and some of those stayed for longer. Many characters were seen recurring in the new seasons. Here’s a list of cast and characters from Hannibal all seasons.
- Hugh Dancy played Will Graham. Will is the hunter of serial killers. He’s gifted with a Criminal profiler who uses his smart tactics to visualize every kill and killer’s behavior. Though he later falls in love with the killer itself.
- Mads Mikkelsen played Hannibal Lecter. Along with being a brilliant forensic expert, he’s secretly a serial killer, known as the Chesapeake Ripper. Hannibal is a Cannibal( the act of consuming other living beings of the same species).
- Caroline Dhavernas played Alana Bloom. Alana is the professional consultant on good terms with both Lecter and Graham.
- Hettienne Park played Beverly Katz. She’s a crime scene investigator.

- Apart from the main lead characters that we saw in Hannibal parts 1, 2, and 3, Fuller wanted to add a new face to the series. Fuller wanted to have Clarice in Hannibal. Hopefully, we get to see her and the same cast in Hannibal Season 4.
Hannibal Season 4 Plot!
Like other series, the plot for Hannibal series 4 will continue from where season 3 ended. That means fans will once again get to witness the love relationship between The FBI agent Will Graham and the cannibalistic serial killer Hannibal Lecter.
Since Fuller has been showing keen interest in including the elements from The Silence of the Lambs to Hannibal Season 4, hopefully, that can be a part of the series.
This indicates that Fuller’s other wish to bring Clarice Stalking to the series will finally be true.
Frederick Chilton will be in charge of the hospital again. He’s been facing a grisly fate and it would be interesting to watch if he survives or not.
Lecter and Will were a part of a feud with Alana Bloom who we saw escaping by season 3rd’s ending.
There will be a lot of drama, crime, the bloating blood scenes once again… And a lot more! Be ready to witness the psychic humanity all over again with double the thrill!
Where To Watch Hannibal Season 4?
Down to the time when Netflix made a huge move by bringing all the three seasons of Hannibal on the platform in June 2021, fans were all lit up with the hope to see Hannibal Season 4 approaching soon.
Can we consider Netflix’s adaptation of the Hannibal series to its streaming platform as a hint for the coming of the fresh season? Hopefully, yes!
In 2015, When NBC removed Hannibal from its platform, fans were disappointed. But Fuller, the developer of the series, came forward and addressed the fans that NBC was a mere distributor of the series and not the producer.
