I can’t say that this news really surprises me that much. While Hannibal was certainly ground breaking and one of the most well written and produced shows on TV – it wasn’t for everyone and this third season has been off to a very slow start. With all that in mind the news dropped today that NBC has announced that season three will be the last – at least on NBC.
“We have been tremendously proud of ‘Hannibal’ over its three seasons,” the network announced 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.”
