NBC Canceled "Hannibal" And People Are Pissed

NBC has been quite rude. We eat the rude.

Posted on

Unless we can all come together to #SaveHannibal. The show's creator Bryan Fuller is on board.

BEDTIME IN PARIS! THANKS TO ALL THE #FANNIBALS FOR YOUR INCREDIBLE SUPPORT TODAY! WE WOULD'VE NEVER MADE IT THIS FAR WITHOUT YOU! #HANNIBAL

Producer Martha De Laurentiis is also hopeful. She told BuzzFeed News that the show's producers are hopeful of being picked up by another network.

"We believe that after they air, audiences' hunger for the fourth chapter of this saga will be incredible, and are presently exploring other distribution options with our creative team and our partners at Gaumont Television."

Comedian Patton Oswalt is on our side.

Temp Twitter break break: SC, please take down the Confederate flag; @AlbertBrooks, do @marcmaron's podcast; @netflix, renew Hannibal. Thx!

Even the good doctor himself agrees.

Some people are calling Taylor Swift to use her powers of persuasion to save the show.

.@taylorswift13 They're just cancelled @NBCHannibal. You know what to do. #SaveHannibal (ping: @BryanFuller)

. @taylorswift13 Bad blood with NBC. Get #Hannibal on @netflix. Many people will be left uneaten if you don't. #SaveHannibal

I think we need to get @taylorswift13 on this #SaveHannibal thing. Girlfriend has Apple bowing to her. Please help us, Tay!! #Hannibal

And heaps of people want a streaming service like Netflix, Hulu or Amazon to save us.

.@netflix totally random reminder that HANNIBAL is the best thing on television

Think about it tho. If Netflix/Amazon picks up #Hannibal, it might actually give @BryanFuller more freedom to go nuts w/ content. #Fannibals

I feel bad for the interns at Hulu & Netflix who have to count all 'Save Hannibal' tweets

Netflix, Amazon, whoever - I'll give up my first born daughter Furiosa if you save #Hannibal k thanx bai

And some people have suggested, not without cause, that we eat the people at NBC.

THE NBC HAS BEEN RUDE WITH HANNIBAL AND WE EAT THE RUDE.

Meanwhile, Bryan Fuller is taking things well. He has praised NBC for its support and says he wants to work with them again.

"NBC has allowed us to craft a television series that no other broadcast network would have dared, and kept us on the air for three seasons despite Cancellation Bear Chow ratings and images that would have shredded the eyeballs of lesser Standards & Practices enforcers," Fuller said in a statement.

"Jen Salke and her team have been fantastic partners and creatively supportive beyond measure. Hannibal is finishing his last course at NBC's table this summer, but a hungry cannibal can always dine again. And personally, I look forward to my next meal with NBC."
