Hannibal cast contracts

It is probably too much to expect that a streaming service will swoop in to save Hannibal. We know Netflix is out, thanks to deals with other companies. Amazon already has streaming rights to the first three seasons (the first two are streaming now, the third eventually will be, after broadcast) seems like the most likely home. In fact, that Amazon deal may make Amazon nearly the only possible contender. And with NBC out of the picture, even that deal will be complicated.

Now contracts for leads Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen have expired. That means they’re free agents, which means that a fourth season for Hannibal would involve negotiating new contracts, making things even more complex. Read More »

‘Hannibal’ Canceled by NBC

Hannibal canceled

Producer Bryan Fuller had ambitious plans for his NBC series Hannibal, but he may never get to explore them on screen. NBC has cancelled Hannibal, just weeks after its third-season premiere. The show will finish out the third seasons, and then exit the network’s schedule. There’s nothing else quite like Hannibal on TV; now there won’t even be Hannibal on TV. Read More »

Hannibal season 3 promo

Hannibal returns for a third season beginning on June 4, and with just a couple weeks left before the new season premiere we’ve got a long new Hannibal Season 3 promo that teases a bunch of new developments in the show. This promo features the major cast members explaining some of where the characters are now, and what’s different this year. “Season three is like a blank slate” says Caroline Dhavernas, who plays Alana Bloom.

There’s also the promise of the arrival of a familiar character, Francis Dolarhyde, played by Richard Armitage, who we see in this video.

Note: If you haven’t seen the second season of Hannibal and are planning to, what follows may feature a few spoilers. (But that’s been the case for all of this season’s promos so far.) Read More »

Hannibal season 3

Hannibal Season 3 begins on June 4, and now series creator Bryan Fuller is offering up some details on the new batch of episodes. First up, he has revealed a couple of the directors for this season. One is returning helmer Vincenzo Natali, who directs the first three episodes of Season 3. Another is Neil Marshall, known for his own efforts on Game of Thrones and features like The Descent. He tackled the show’s eighth episode, which has a title that fans of the book series and previous films should be very intrigued by. Read More »

Hannibal Season 2

It’s probably a bad idea to accept a taste of anything Hannibal the brilliant psychiatrist/cannibal has to offer, but it’s an excellent idea to get a taste of Hannibal the acclaimed NBC drama. Especially when the taste is as delectable as this one is.

The very first trailer shows Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) looking for his old friend Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), in what appears to be Florence, Italy. It seems he’s got a pretty important message to deliver. Newly minted series regular Gillian Anderson also swings by. Watch the Hannibal Season 3 trailer after the jump.  Read More »

Hannibal Season 3 details

Bryan Fuller may not be quite at George R.R. Martin‘s level when it comes to killing off beloved characters, but Hannibal is still a show about a serial killer. It should come as no surprise that from time to time, characters get shot in the face, chopped into pieces, or braised in a nice wine sauce.

What is shocking is that sometimes, those characters nevertheless find ways to come back. At the Hannibal Comic-Con panel Thursday, Fuller confirmed the returns of two fan favorite characters believed to be dead. Hit the jump to find out who, and to get some more details on Hannibal Season 3. (Be aware the spoilers follow.)

Update: We’ve added video of the full Comic Con panel (minus footage clips) for Hannibal.

Hannibal Renewed

Two very different shows with geek appeal are coming back for another season. NBC has just renewed Hannibal, which brings us one step closer to the fulfillment of producer Bryan Fuller‘s vision of a seven-season run. And The Goldbergs got the nod for a second season from ABC.

But all isn’t well everywhere. In addition to axing Community, NBC has killed off Revolution, and the future of Parenthood and Dracula is currently uncertain.

Update: Dracula has officially been canceled. Details below.
