It has been announced that the NBC show “Hannibal” is going to be canceled after three seasons. The third season will be the last for the show. The premier for the third season was on June 4th. Bryan Fuller, who created the show, released a statement confirming the cancellation of “Hannibal”. The show will finish the last 13 episodes and end on August 27th.
“Hannibal” has been acclaimed by the critics and stars Mads Mikkelsen, Gillian Anderson, Hugh Dancy, and Laurence Fishburne. “Hannibal” has a strong fan base but apparently it is not strong enough with the demographic viewers. The two most recent episodes of the show have hit an all-time low for an audience. It is rumored that the producers of the show may be looking for another home to continue their story. That is not unheard of. Video on demand services such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Yahoo in the past have picked up shows that were canceled on television networks and allowed them to continue on.
Fuller, who is 45-years-old, is not quite done in Hollywood yet. It is rumored that he is working to adapt the Neil Gaiman novel “American Gods” into a television show for Starz Channel.
