Amazon and Netflix will not be Hannibal's saving grace.
The psychological thriller is currently looking for a new home, but the Internet's two most popular streaming services have turned the wayward series back out on the street.
"I'M SORRY TO REPORT @amazon AND @netflix HAVE PASSED ON #HANNIBAL S4 BUT WE'RE STILL INVESTIGATING POSSIBILITIES," series creator Bryan Fuller tweeted on Monday.
Netflix was effectively scratched from contention back in June thanks to Hannibal's previous involvement with Amazon (the site will stream seasons 1-3), but even that contract did not manage to secure Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) a new home. The cause of this rejection could stem from Fuller's commitment to Starz's American Gods, a Neil Gaiman adaptation that may force the showrunner to momentarily put his cannibalistic endeavor on the back burner, according to IGN.
The production time line for American Gods has yet to be announced, however.
So, where can Hannibal look for shelter next? Other streaming services such as Hulu and Yahoo! are still possibilities, and cable outlets are presumably still in contention.
In the meantime, Fannibals can watch Dr. Lecter prepare his illegal comestibles Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on NBC. Click the video below to see a preview for the series' next episode.
