Bryan Fuller, wyd? Everybody loves Bryan Fuller, but the man apparently can’t hold down a job. Fuller has just jumped ship on yet another show: The Vampire Chronicles TV series.

Bryan Fuller officially joined the Vampire Chronicles TV series back in January, but his time with the show was very short-lived. Nerdist has confirmed Fuller lasted only a month with The Vampire Chronicles, and parted ways with the series in February. At this point, we really shouldn’t be surprised. Fuller has made something of a habit of departing projects.

Year - Fuller - Star - Trek - Discovery

In the last year or so, Fuller has left Star Trek: Discovery, American Gods and Apple’s upcoming reboot of Amazing Stories. Why, exactly, does this keep happening? Fuller is an incredible artist, and the shows he has gotten off the ground – Pushing Daises, Hannibal, the first season of American Gods, and so on – have all turned out wonderfully. Yet Fuller appears to be someone who doesn’t want to compromise his vision. On one hand, that’s something worth celebrating – Fuller takes his work seriously. On another hand, it’s a bit frustrating, because I want Fuller to be involved with all these shows.

The Vampire Chronicles in particular felt like a perfect match for Fuller. His Hannibal series felt like as much an adaptation of Anne Rice‘s Vampire Chronicles as it did Thomas Harris’ Hannibal Lecter books. Fuller’s take on the relationship between lead characters Hannibal Lecter and Will Graham seemed to be directly inspired by the relationship between Vampire Chronicles characters Lestat de Lioncourt and Louis de Pointe du Lac.
