Hannibal: NBC To Cancel Show After Three Seasons

TV News - NBC To Cancel Hannibal After Three SeasonsDespite the critical acclaim and cult following Hannibal’s run on NBC is coming to an end as the network have opted not to renew the show for a fourth season.


As the news displeases myself and many others, Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller had kind words to say about the network:

NBC has allowed us to craft a television series that no other broadcast network would have dared, and kept us on the air for three seasons despite Cancellation Bear Chow ratings and images that would have shredded the eyeballs of lesser Standards & Practices enforcers. Jen Salke and her team have been fantastic partners and creatively supportive beyond measure. HANNIBAL is finishing his last course at NBC’s table this summer, but a hungry cannibal can always dine again. And personally, I look forward to my next meal with NBC.


An NBC Spokesperson said:

We have been tremendously proud of ‘Hannibal’ over its three seasons,” NBC said in a statement. “Bryan and his team of writers and producers, as well as our incredible actors, have brought a visual palette of storytelling that has been second to none in all of television — broadcast or cable. We thank Gaumont and everyone involved in the show for their tireless efforts that have made ‘Hannibal’ an incredible experience for audiences around the world.


Though the network may be saying farewell to Hannibal, Fuller & company aren’t going down without a fight as the battlecry of #SaveHannibal is gaining momentum on twitter and many think that the likes of Netflix or Amazon can give it a lifeline moving forward with a fourth season, if possible.
