Hannibal: Season Three for NBC TV Show

HannibalSoup’s on! NBC has decided to renew their low-rated Friday night series Hannibal for a third season.

Based on the Red Dragon novel by Thomas Harris, Hannibal revolves around the early relationship between FBI investigator Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), a forensic psychiatrist who becomes an infamous cannibalistic serial killer. Others in the cast of this thriller series include Caroline Dhavernas, Hettienne Park, Laurence Fishburne, Scott Thompson, and Aaron Abrams.

The series had poor ratings last season but the network brought it back for a second year anyway. The ratings have dropped even lower this time around (by 23% in the demo), making it the network’s lowest-rated scripted series. Still, it’s been renewed.

Word is that the show was likely renewed because of the unique deal that NBC has with the show’s studio. Under the deal, episodes of hannibal cost just $500,000 apiece, far lower than other network dramas.

What do you think? Are you a fan of this series? Are you glad it’s been renewed or should it have been cancelled instead?

This show is out standing. Should be more like it. The actors are great. They are good and interesting. I have both seasons and I have watched them both back to back plus I watch both series on TV. The Hannial has such class and style. I love the ways he can hold himself together and no one suspects till the end and still get away with it. All the buildings, his office, his kitchen makes me want one. He can cook like out of this world even if it human meat. The dishes he lays out are magnificent. He walks with such style and grace. As for Will you could not have chosen a better actor. He was so believable when he was playing Hannibal into thinking he was serial killer. I am dying to see the new season. Hannibal was just as good as Anthony Hopkins as the original.
