We were pretty annoyed about NBC’s decision to cancel Hannibal last year, but no more than the show’s star, Mads Mikkelsen, who said that he’s hopeful for the show’s return.
Speaking with the Sunday Express, Mikkelsen noted that the entire cast was angry over the cancellation:
We are all angry. We were p****d. It’s madness. By the time we got to season four we thought it was a definite. We were very surprised at the decision.
Mikkelsen noted that they had high hopes for what the show could accomplish with another season: they had begun to resolve some of the rights issues that had looked to be a roadblock for some of the stories that they wanted to tell, and had some exciting things planned.
