NBC Kills HANNIBAL
Variety reported the news earlier today, setting off a firestorm on social media channels among the show's "small" (for a major network) but devoted group of "Fannibals," the diehard fans devoted to the show. For the record, #FuckyouNBC is beginning to trend on Facebook, and there is already a Change.org petition.
However, Hannibal may yet get to meet Clarice via the small screen revival: executive producer Martha De Laurentiis confirmed that a resurrection is a possibility. She told BuzzFeed News:
NBC has been a wonderful home for three seasons of Hannibal, and we still have 10 mind-blowing episodes taking Hannibal and Will into uncharted terrain," wrote de Laurentiis. "We believe that after they air, audiences' hunger for the fourth chapter of this saga will be incredible, and are presently exploring other distribution options with our creative team and our partners at Gaumont Television.
