NBC has decided to not pick up a fourth season of their critically-acclaimed series Hannibal. Though the show has a loyal following and does well on DVR and on-demand viewing, it’s initial ratings are soft, bringing in only a with its most recent episode. The cancellation wasn’t a big surprise with the network having held the third season to run in the summer. Also, had the series continued it would have needed a new show runner as series creator Bryan Fuller has just gotten a new series, American Gods based on the novel by Neil Gaiman, picked up by Starz.
The series will air out the final episodes on Thursdays at 10 PM.
