Last month, NBC canceled critical darling Hannibal after three seasons. Ever since, fans of the show – who are particularly diehard – have been hopeful that it would find a savior. Maybe Netflix? Maybe Amazon?
Well, apparently it’s going to have to be someone else. Executive producer and creator Bryan Fuller has confirmed that both Netflix and Amazon have passed on the show.
@MikeBarbre I'M SORRY TO REPORT @amazon AND @netflix HAVE PASSED ON #HANNIBAL S4 BUT WE'RE STILL INVESTIGATING POSSIBILITIES

“We have been tremendously proud of Hannibal over its three seasons,” NBC said of its decision. “Fuller 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.”
Season three, which is currently airing, will feature a finale that could tie up the series – if it had to. But Fuller has stated that he had “radical” plans for a season four.
And fans are clamoring for more Hannibal.
So, where could Hannibal land? Of course there’s Hulu. Yahoo saved Community, so that’s an option.
Or maybe the best place for Hannibal is …
@BryanFuller @MikeBarbre @amazon @netflix Have you tried the @FoodNetwork?
