The critically acclaimed show will close its curtains this year.

In a shock move today, NBC has announced that it will not renew Hannibal for a fourth season.

In a statement, NBC said:

“We have been tremendously proud of Hannibal over its three seasons. Bryan and his team of writers and producers, as well as our incredible actors, have brought a visual palette of storytelling that has been second to none in all of television — broadcast or cable. We thank Gaumont and everyone involved in the show for their tireless efforts that have made Hannibal an incredible experience for audiences around the world.”

Despite a score of 97% on Rotten Tomatoes, viewing figures have been dwindling since it started.

Likely more suited for cable than network, it had always been received positively on DVR, on-demand and social media.

Do you watch Hannibal? Are you sorry to see it go?
