In case you missed it, the "Antipasto" recap went up on Saturday.


"Hannibal" Cancelled After 3 Seasons

@mattzollerseitz: Bummer that NBC cancelled HANNIBAL, but considering it was mostly funded elsewhere, maybe it's not the end?

@JarettSays: #Hannibal producer @neoprod tells @BuzzFeedEnt the show is "presently exploring other distribution options"



@cleolinda: I mean, fuck everybody, I'm still recapping. Even if Amazon/Hulu/Netflix don't pick #Hannibal up for S4, we'll send it out with a bang.

Well, dammit. And this is not a day on which I needed bad news, either.

I'm only surprised that I'm surprised. Hannibal has been very lucky to get 3 seasons with the ratings it gets. I really hope Netflicks or Amazon picks it up.

I know what you mean about shock that you're shocked. It's hardly a surprise but that doesn't stop it being disappointing. Hopefully it will be picked up by someone like Netflix - after all it's demonstrably not a bad show, it's just... rather niche. But utterly brilliant and made with love.

I think this could make the unknown months until I get to see S3 feel even longer.

Whose blood are you savoring right now, ma'am?

What?!?!

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

*sob*

Netflix has GOT to pick this up. They'd be totally bonkers to not see the potential after their success with Marvel's "Daredevil". Fannibals worldwide (even here in mainland China we are legion, with a decent amount of Netflix subscribers — whereas no one here could get NBC or any other overseas channel without paying a fortune or resorting to illegal dishes — and the crowd LOVED Mads Mikkelsen when he showed up in Shanghai ComicCon) are gonna place sacrifices — human or otherwise — on those networks' altars to make it happen, I'd reckon. Thirteen episodes out *all at once*, guuuuuyyyyysss.

That does it. I wanted to do it before because of the season 3 Feels, but this has only strengthened my resolve. I'm gonna write Hannibal recaps of my own, out of my love for the Show, and to give it a proper sendoff if heaven forbid this is really, as they say, it.

This is the worst birthday gift.

:( I hope news of it getting picked up by netflix or hulu or whoever occurs on some other significant date for you, then.

Hopefully it'll get picked up. At least we're getting Red Dragon, which is what I really wanted.

At least now we live in a world where it has the possibility of continuing on elsewhere.

I imagine it would be better suited for something like Netflix or Amazon Prime, which are a bit better for niche shows that have to be watched in order.

Has anyone seen this post about contacting netflix?

"LISTEN UP FANNIBALS

after a call to Netflix i have acquired the following info.

-they will consider picking up Hannibal
-and they will consider it more and it will raise the likelyhood if a lot of people call in and request it.

SO HERES WHAT YOUVE GOTTA DO: call Netflix at 1 866 579 7172 and request that they pick up Hannibal! be nice, too. that’s it!

GO AND #SAVEHANNIBAL"

?

But according to this person in the notes: "Okay, as a former Netflix call center employee I can tell you…this is not an effective method. It’s better to tweet or email their content creation people, not customer service."

?

So hopeful that the show can be picked up elsewhere!

Rude, NBC. Shockingly rude!

First Constantine and now this.
A lot of my friends are worried The BlackList is up for the chop, too!

While I'm not surprised that it's been cancelled, I'm really surprised that the cancellation got announced so soon. I mean, the show's not even halfway with its season yet.

I know the show's always been on the bubble and as wrong as it is that it's been in that position since the beginning (because goddammit the show is amazing), I guess the bubble had to break at some point.

But maybe some other station or Netflix or Amazon will take it up. I need more Empath and the Cannibal. I just do.

While I'm not surprised that it's been cancelled, I'm really surprised that the cancellation got announced so soon.

Yeah, this. Last two seasons, we were waiting with baited breath right up until the end.

A caged Hannibal isn't interesting.

That is a pretty controversial point but...care to elaborate?

Disappointing, definitely. I don't know if I'm surprised, but I *am* surprised they'd announce it this early on. But at least it gives the writers time to wrap it up, and more time to try and find alternative distribution (and I love that that is a serious option now).

But at least it gives the writers time to wrap it up

Does it? I thought everything was already shot.

I hope it gets picked up elsewhere, regardless.
