NBC has axed Hannibal after three low-rated seasons.
Series creator Bryan Fuller confirmed the show’s cancellation via statement:
“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. [NBC president] Jen Salke and her team have been fantastic partners and creatively supportive beyond measure.
Hinting at the prospect of a new home for Hannibal Season 4, he continued:
“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.”
In its own statement, NBC said:
“We have been tremendously proud of Hannibal over its three seasons. 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 madeHannibal an incredible experience for audiences around the world.”
Stay tuned as we monitor Hannibal‘s revival prospects from the cancellation graveyard…
SIGN THE PETITION AND LET’S SAVE HANNIBAL!
No idea.... says
Internet petitions to save a tv show are the equivalent to admitting you have no life. 🙂 Things change… move on. You’ll be happier for it.
i do have a life and this show is fantastic, the dialogue, the visuals…it is a amazing show. The writers, actors and photographers are amazing…I never miss this show on my DVR…the problem is I think you have to have an IQ over 125 to understand it. As the dumbing down of America continues, we lose more and more quality shows. It’s a shame
It is sad to see this show go I have watched it sense it came of am a big follower of Hannibal have seen all the movies and I read the book Hannibal, I was so happy when they first announced that it was going to be on tv but now it is going to gone….what I can’t understand is why do they get us interested and then they pull the plug on it I have to say that I hate it a lot it just seems to happen a little to often that is what’s so sad….I think that the reason that Hannibal had so much trouble is because of a few reasons first: it was put on the wrong day and time.Second: I guess that there are some people that would have trouble following it and understanding it..,,your not going to get a good audience at that time of night and it should’ve been shown in the winter time
But yey NBC will keep piece of shit shows like fri3nds running for 10years…parenthood for 6…Saturday Night Live for 40+
One of the best shows on tv cancelled what a surprise
by far the best show on tv EVER ! I will miss it, and I have lost respect for nbc, they keep the bad and get rid of the best shows.
Hannibal was the best thing going
It was the best thing going.
