NBC Cancels ‘Hannibal’ After Three Seasons

HANNIBAL --

NBC is serving up its last course of Hannibal.

According to TVLine, The Peacock network has officially canceled Bryan Fuller’s thriller series after three seasons.

“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,” Fuller said in a statement. “Jen Salke [NBC President] 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.”

NBC added: “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 made Hannibal an incredible experience for audiences around the world.”

The news isn’t all that surprising considering the season three premiere garnered 2,6 million viewers and a 0.7 rating.

But let’s not lose all hope just yet. DeLaurentiis Co. is exploring other options.

‘Hannibal’ Season 3, “Primavera” Preview: Let the Hunting Begin

Will Graham is alive and well and starts his quest to find the one and only Hannibal Lecter.

As he recovers from his nearly fatal injuries eight months later, Will finds his memories going in and out, which ends up making me feel like I’m losing my mind. Seriously, sometimes I can’t tell what’s real and what’s not on this show!

This week’s episode titled “Primavera,” finds Will in Palermo, Italy, hoping he’ll find Hannibal there, but what he does find is even more interesting. Will meets Inspector Rinaldo Pazzi (FortunatoCerlino) who “twenty years earlier pursued a Florentine killer known as “Il Mostro” and, after reading Will’s file, believes that Hannibal Lecter and “Il Mostro” are one and the same.

Hannibal airs Thursday, June 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

The official synopsis for “Primavera”:

WILL GRAHAM SETS OFF ON A SEARCH FOR HANNIBAL LECTER — With his wounds now healed, Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) heads to Europe eight months after the horrific event that almost took his life, in search of closure with Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen). Following a hunch, Will arrives in Palermo, Italy to find a disturbing gift. Will’s arrival draws suspicion from Inspector Rinaldo Pazzi (guest star Fortunato Cerlino), who twenty years earlier pursued a Florentine killer known as “Il Mostro” and, after reading Will’s file, believes that Hannibal Lecter and “Il Mostro” are one and the same. Pazzi tries to enlist Will’s help in catching Hannibal, but Will warns that he is unsure of where his own allegiance lies.

At the Television Critics Association, NBC announced that Hannibal isn’t returning until summer, which, is a total bummer. However, they have slightly redeemed themselves by releasing the first trailer for the upcoming season.

EW unveiled the teaser trailer and had the exclusive first look at what’s to come after the unbelievable destruction and possible deaths that Dr. Left in his wake. We still aren’t even sure who’s left alive at this point. What we do know, is that Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) was seen leaving the country with Hannibal himself.

The network has yet to release a premiere date for when Hannibal will return.

Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!

‘Hannibal’ Promotes Gillian Anderson to Series Regular for Season 3

Hannibal - Season 1

The Season 2 finale of NBC’s Hannibal left everyone in shock as we saw Hannibal and Bedelia fleeing the country…together! After what went down in Hannibal’s home, we were left in a state of “WTF just happened.” I didn’t know what else to say. Fans were unsure of who survived that incredible finale. I mean, Alana Bloom fell out of a second-story window! How will they ever top that season?

According to TVLine, Gillian Anderson has been promoted to a series regular as Dr. Du Maurier, which means she will have a much bigger role to play.

The third season, which is set to return in early 2015, will find Hannibal and Bedelia in Europe and on the run with Will chasing after them. The premiere will “feel like a pilot for a new series starring Mads Mikkelsen and Gillian Anderson,” teased series creator Bryan Fuller back at Comic-Con.
