NBC CANCELED “HANNIBAL”

Friday, July 03, 2015

Hannibal is an American psychological thriller-horror television series developed by Bryan Fuller for NBC. The series is based on characters and elements appearing in the novel Red Dragon by Thomas Harris and focuses on the friendship between FBI special investigator Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), a forensic psychiatrist destined to become Graham’s most cunning enemy.





The series received a 13-episode order for its first season and, unlike most U.S. network shows, all future seasons would feature 13 episodes. David Slade executive produced and directed the first episode. The series premiered on NBC on April 4, 2013. On May 9, 2014, NBC renewed Hannibal for a third season, which premiered on June 4, 2015. On June 22, 2015, NBC cancelled the series. Fuller has initiated talks with Amazon Prime and Netflix for a renewal.

The series has received critical acclaim, with the performances of the lead actors and the visual style of the show being singled out by critics.
