Bryan Fuller offers a Hannibal update, but it isn’t good news for fans
“Fannibals” everywhere received some troublesome news last month when it was announced that NBC had, after three seasons, cancelled the acclaimed series “Hannibal.” Although a search was immediately launched to find the Thomas Harris adaptation a new home, showrunner Bryan Fuller has just shared a troublesome update via Twitter. As you can read in Fuller’s below message, both Amazon and Netflix have officially passed on providing a new home for the show. Can the shattered teacup that is “Hannibal” still come back together? Fuller doesn’t seem ready to throw in the towel quite yet, promising that, at least for now, the search continues.
After the shocking events of the season finale, Hannibal season three has found Lecter on the run in Europe — accompanied by his psychiatrist Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson, “The X-Files”) — sporting a new identity, but servicing the same insatiable appetite. As the lives of Will (Hugh Dancy), Jack (Laurence Fishburne, The Matrix, “CSI”) and Alana (Caroline Dhavernas, “Wonderfalls,” “The Pacific”) converge toward Hannibal again, their deadly dance turns in startling and unexpected ways, and nothing will ever be the same again.
Bryan Fuller, Martha De Laurentiis, Jesse Alexander, Chris Brancato, Sara Colleton, Katie O’Connell, Elisa Roth, Sidonie Dumas and Christophe Riandee serve as executive producers. The series is produced by Gaumont International Television, Dino De Laurentiis Company and Living Dead Guy Productions, and co-commissioned internationally by Sony Pictures Television Networks.
Despite its cancellation, “Hannibal” will finish its third season on NBC, airing Thursday nights at 9:00pm ET/PT through August 27.
