You can say goodbye to Hannibal after season three since NBC has decided to officially pull the plug on the series. According to The Hollywood Reporter, one of the reasons the cannibal killer show is getting canceled is because ratings for third season have been fairly low.
Another reason why the show is getting the axe could be rights issues to some of the characters from the novels such as Clarice Starling, who was previously played by Jodie Foster in Silence of the Lambs and Julianne Moore in Hannibal (the movie).
Bryan Fuller, the series showrunner released the following statement regarding Hannibal‘s cancelation on NBC:
NBC has allowed us to craft a television series that no other broadcast network would have dared, and kept us on the air for three seasons despite Cancelation Bear Chow ratings and images that would have shredded the eyeballs of lesser Standards & Practices enforcers… Hannibal is finishing his last course at NBC’s table this summer, but a hungry cannibal can always dine again. And personally, I look forward to my next meal with NBC.
The season finale will air on Thursday, September 3, 2015. So, how do you feel about this? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
