  1. I'm blaming the network for being cheapskates who didn't want to follow through on Fuller's vision when they're the one who hired him in the first place.
     
  2. To be honest, Fuller has gone a bit overboard in recent years. Parts of Hannibal and season 1 of American Gods were sometimes too much of him up his own ass. At this point he needs a strong second showrunner to control him.

  3. To be fair, Bryan Fuller has walked away from three other shows becaude he didn't get his own way. He's undoubtedly become a bit of a diva.

  4. There's just no reason for it ever to come back. They had not one, but two chances to either satisfyingly resolve the show's mythology or wipe the slate clean and reinvent the series, but they struggled to do either. It's done.

    People can scapegoat Gillian if they want someone to blame, but ultimately, the showrunners are the people who drove this reboot into the ground.

  5. Could not agree more - none of the blame lies with any of the cast, they all did a great job. It was purely a writing issue - it was atrocious, especially the mythology episodes. They were such a mess and a complete embarrassment. And with only a handful of decent standalones there's no point in ruining it's legacy any further.
