Following news that cult horror series Hannibal has been given the chop, fans produced an outcry that was testament to how special the show really was to them. All over the word, loyal Fannibals had to bear the burden of the heart-breaking news that the TV series would not be returning to NBC and took to social-media to express their sadness.
Yet, soon after the news of the cancellation hit, supporters also mustered up an online campaign that appeared on Change.org, causing a #SaveHannibal hashtag to begin to gain momentum. And the hope is to find the NBC drama, and Hannibal Lecter, a new home!
After all, the show is an unconventional masterclass that needs to remain and it's terrifying, yet somehow credible, monster portrayed by Mikkelsen even more so. I mean, is there a more seductive, yet inhuman, character out there at the moment?
Hopefully, the petition will cause a stir and a new partnership opportunity arises! In particular, fans have been turning to Netflix to pick up the show, yet ABC and Showtime are also considered worthy of the series.
The show's fan remain hopeful, that's for sure:
