Fans Launch Campaign To Save “Hannibal”
Savage serial killer Hannibal “The Cannibal” Lecter may be eating his final meal at NBC, but fans have launched an online petition in a major bid to revive the network’s freshly cancelled series, Hannibal. To date, the campaign has around 65,000.00 signatures.
The Peacock network recently announced that Hannibal, which stars Mads Mikkelsen as Lecter, would not be revived at the end of the current third season.
In a press release, NBC praised the show’s actors, producers and writers for creating a “visual Spectacle that set new standards in the history of storytelling on television.”
In the wake of the network’s announcement, series creator Bryan Fuller, via a Tweet, asked fans to support the show by watching the third season. He said everyone should watch together and “show how strong the #fannibal collective can be.”
Despite the announcement, Fuller promised that Hannibal will be at Comic Con in San Diego this summer.
