NBC Cancels Hannibal



Following the cancellation of Constantine, now NBC has cancelled Hannibal.

NBC has decided not to renew Hannibal for a fourth Season and the series is effectively cancelled with Season 3.

“We have been tremendously proud of Hannibal over its three seasons,” NBC said in a statement. “[Showrunner Bryan Fuller] 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.”

Bryan Fuller also added: “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.”

Last week's episode saw a series low with 0.5 rating. 

It is possible Hannibal could be picked up elsewhere; however, nothing has been mentioned as of this time.
