Hannibal fans shouldn't lose hope - there are multiple platforms still considering rehoming the beleaguered series.
The NBC drama fell on hard times during the third season as its ratings dipped, dropped, and failed to recover. Denied a fourth season with the peacock network, Bryan Fuller's psychological thriller is currently looking for a new outlet. Although Amazon and Netflix have each passed on the infamous cannibal, Hulu, at least, is one streaming service that has not barred its doors.
"They haven't passed yet, that I know of," Fuller said at San Diego Comic-Con.
Hugh Dancy (Will) even mentioned the possibility of a feature film.
Keenly aware that season 3 could be Dr. Lecter's final bow, Fuller made sure the summer run would take the characters all the way into the events of Red Dragon.
"I was aware this was going to be our last season in many ways, so I kinda wanted to get as much in there," Fuller said, quickly elaborating on why NBC dropped the project. "NBC has been so fantastic and supportive of in allowing us to tell a story that no other network would allow us to do. Part of that gentleman's agreement with Jenn Sulkie, who is the President of [NBC] Entertainment, was 'I will let you do the show that you want to do and I can protect the show as long as you're above a .5.'"
Unfortunately, the first few episodes of season 3 left Fuller and Co. without that vital protection.
As we all wait for a season 4 announcement, fans can still catch Hannibal Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on Hannibal. Click the video below to see a preview for next week's episode.
