Hannibal's story might conclude soon. Yesterday, 22nd, NBC confirmed that Hannibal is officially ending its run this August. Aware of this possible outcome, the creator Bryan Fuller thanked NBC for this fantastic three years together, but he doesn't want to give up on the most beloved serial killer of TV. In fact he already has plans for a possible fourth season and he wants the fans to sign petitions and share the hashtag #SaveHannibal.
With Hannibal, NBC had a high-profile thriller-drama which sadly delivered modest results over the past few years, but obtained critical acclaim all over the world. Its latest episode has averaged a poor 0.5 in the 18-49 demographic. The problem of this third season's ratings can be associated with its late start in Summer, and its war against huge NBA's ratings. The Mikkelsen's show has started its run with a gripping first season which performed relatively good for a late mid-season NBC's show. But when the network moved it to Friday after Grimm, the ratings' decline was inevitable.
After a great first season, the second one was as good or even better than the first. Things got complicated between Hannibal and Will. The plot got juicier and various storylines converged in the second season finale. Blood was spread by a vengeful Hannibal. What fans loved about the TV #Series is not only the great cast, the wonderful photography, but also the perfect way of telling the story of a character already famous, thanks to the 'Silence of the Lambs' and Hopkins' performance. Mikkelsen and Dancy were as perfect as the original cast of the '88's movie.
How can we save Hannibal? Unfortunately we can't save it by ourselves, but we can fight! Bryan Fuller released various interviews saying that he is interested in giving Hannibal a new "home". He already has a season 4 planned and he says that it will be the coolest yet. He wants to analyse even deeper the relationship between Hannibal Lecter and Will Graham, and he will bring them again to a new position.
Now let's #SaveHannibal. Share #SaveHannibal on Twitter and sign the two petition in Avaaz's and Change.org's websites. Fans from all over the world must come together and let other networks hear our voices. Hannibal has plenty of fans, we can make it. Next year we will likely watch Fuller's American Gods, we can't lose Hannibal! #Television
