‘Hannibal’ Season 4 Officially Passed On By Amazon and Netflix
The window to save Hannibal grows smaller with each passing day, leaving fans particularly anxious of the upcoming Comic-Con 2015 panel, which may prove the show’s last. That fate grows only more grim today, as Bryan Fuller confirms both Amazon and Netflix have passed on a fourth season.
All hope is perhaps not lost, though Fuller himself broke the bad news over Twitter:
Admittedly, Fuller had previously stated that Hannibal’s exclusive streaming rights with Amazon made any possibility of a Netflix rescue remote, though that same deal had also made Amazon the Fannibals’ most likely savior. We’ve certainly seen more unexpected rescues, like Community’s last-minute resurrection on Yahoo, though with Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy now released from their contracts, prospects only grow fewer.
In the meantime, we’ve still eight episodes to go in the current season, including the complete Red Dragon arc, featuring the likes of The Hobbit star Richard Armitage as Francis Dolarhyde, as well as True Blood alum Rutina Wesley as Reba, and Nina Arianda as Will’s new wife Molly. Bryan Fuller too has a bright future on Starz’s American Gods, but is hope for Hannibal all but off the table?
We’ll have the full report from Comic-Con 2015 later this week, though it might be time to ask for the check, Hannibal fans.
