In disheartening news, both Amazon and Netflix have passed on the option to pick “Hannibal“, which was cancelled recently. Amazon has the exclusive streaming rights for “Hannibal”, which led many fans to hope that they would pick it up and continue it as an original series.

Showrunner Bryan Fuller took to Twitter to announce this new information but also stated that, “…we’re still investigating possibilities.

Still, with the news that both Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen have been released from their contracts, it’s starting to feel like this truly is the end…

The show is currently in its third season with Will Graham and Jack Crawford chasing Hannibal Lecter in Palermo, Italy. This season is also confirmed to have a six-episode surrounding Francis Dollarhyde, aka “The Red Dragon”.

    Bullshit.

  • Yakushiji Tenzen

    fuck you amazon and netflix then. Especially amazon.

    That’s a shame. Hulu, maybe? That’s where The Mindy Project went when it was canceled, I believe. Or maybe some weird up-and-comer no one’s heard about? Hitching themselves to Hannibal would be good for them, I’d imagine. What about Shudder, that new horror movie streaming thing?

      Hannibal is already on Hulu so it’s not really a huge stretch.

  • ChasingTheGhost

    Fuck everything.

      Michael Douglas have you relapsed?

  • J Jett

    not to be so negative but i really think the show is done. it Amazon and Netflix are passing on it, i don’t see HBO or SHOWTIME picking it up (but i could be wrong of course). maybe STARZ?

    • James F. Reilly

      Don’t forget AMC, A&E, TBS, etc. I mean, there are a few viable options out there beyond the paid streaming services.

        The Food Network?

      With Bryan Fuller gone, and Mads’ and Hugh Dancy’s contract expirations was there any doubt that Hannibal would be a goner. It still sucks but I’m moving on.

      Either way, this frees up Gilian Anderson for more X-Files! And I would love to see someone cast Mads Mikkelsen as Count Dracula for Penny Dreadful or for a standalone film!

      • concerned citizen

        Mads as Dracula in Penny Dreadful?
        Well that has to happen now.

  • Blade

    Chiller should pick it up, they could use a show like that IMO.

  • Lucy Lestat

    They must’ve quoted them a pretty number if even Netflix passed

  • ~Adam~

    It’s a shame. Time to savor these last remaining episodes the way Hannibal would a nice piece of human flesh.

    @bloody-disgusting< Start working at home with Google! It’s by-far thss best job I’ve had. Last Wednesday I got a brand new BMW since getting a check for $6879 this – 8 weeks past. I began this 8-months ago and immediately was bringing home at least $205 per hour. I work through this link………

  • I mean, at the very least you could pitch it to Crackle! Considering their movie selection, they’re BOUND to pick it up! lol

My Elder brother friend has been averaging 14k for months now and he works about 36 hours a week. I can't believe how easy it was once I tried it out. This is what I do..clik at this go to tech tab for more details…..If you think this could be for you then find out more here

    How in the fresh turkey fuck did Netflix pass this up?

  • Ray Mohrmann

    it’s going to end up leaving us hanging for another season that will never happen…I ‘m so sad and angry this show was cancelled, it’s one of my favorite shows next to Walking Dead and The Strain…it’s a brilliant show with an excellent cast…why won’t some station pick this up…this show is dead isn’t it?

  • Jonny_anonymous

    fuck everything forever

  • brewers_rule

    O-bla-dee, O-bla-dah……

  • Shay Lauderdale

    I read that the creator Bryan Fuller wanted it to be a trilogy….. I love this show, & I think that it is one of the best on tv. I would rather it go out in style at the top of the game, than for it to wear out it’s welcome. If Bryan Fuller wanted Hannibal to be a trilogy, I am sure that he will wrap it all up by the end of the season. We either end with one stellar battle of goodish vs. evil or Will joining Hannibal in a sociopath bloody union……….

    Well crap.

  • Werewolf

    Those pussies at NBC have no business with a television network. Now the old saying is true once more. NBC = NOTHING but CRAP!

  • AdamX

    Netflix once seemed like a great thing but their getting too high on remakes and just shuffling in old movies/shows most don’t want in favor of stuff some of us might like to see.
