The cancellation of NBC’s Hannibal left us shocked, shocked (well, not that shocked), though given the climate of revivals and rescues, it seemed resoundingly likely the darkly delicious drama might find a new home. Now, series creator Bryan Fuller and producers are on the hunt for a new network, while long-standing rights issues with Clarice Starling may have impacted Season 4’s chances.
For all its legions of fans and critical accolades, NBC’s Hannibal has always skated along ratings-wise, at least until now. Shooting, carving off and gnawing its own foot, NBC has officially opted not to renew Hannibal for a fourth season, effectively canceling the drama until another network - basically any network - decides to swoop in.
It’s been near of a year since we’ve heard anything from the front of Starz’s take on Neil Gaiman novel American Gods, but like the deities themselves, a formal greenlight simply lay in wait.

NBC’s Hannibal put a darkly dreamy spin on one of cinema’s most iconic villains, but did you know the network ordered the series on the strength of creator Bryan Fuller’s pilot script alone? Or that it has its own chef to craft its culinary cannibal delights? These are just some of the delicious morsels to savor in the ninth episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?,’ which serves up an appetizing look at NBC’s Hannibal!
NBC’s Hannibal has committed such outlandish crimes as stuffing human bodies into trees, horse innards, even actual stuffing, but creator Bryan Fuller draws the line at depicting sexual violence.

NBC’s Hannibal will return for a third course as soon as June 4, but the lion’s share of promos have focus on the dark doctor’s new life abroad. Now, the newest look at Bryan Fuller’s third season introduces The Hobbit star Richard Armitage as the famed Red Dragon, simultaneously spoiling a few more outcomes from the Season 2 finale bloodbath.
Apart from, you know, everyone’s survival, Hannibal left us with a great Season 3 mystery in its closing tag of Bedelia (Gillian Anderson) accompanying the good Dr. Lecter on the lam. Now, the latest look at Season 3 of Bryan Fuller’s darkly delicious NBC drama teases that the “Bride of Hannibal” may not be such a kept woman, and may spill some blood of her own.
June is fast approaching, and we haven’t checked in with the good Dr. Lecter after the first Hannibal Season 3 trailer. Nevertheless, our beloved cannibal antihero is always watching (and blinking) at us, evidenced by an unnerving new motion poster for the third course of NBC’s darkly delicious horror.
Fans of Bryan Fuller’s NBC Hannibal had an understandable tummy grumble when Season 3 ended up pushed to summer 2015, but at last we know when the third course will be served.
