NBC has done something smart for once. The network renewed ‘Hannibal’ for a second season on Thursday. It was the last scripted show of the 2012-2013 tv season that was waiting to see if it would be cancelled or not.
It will produce 13 episodes for Season 2, they will air “no earlier than mid-season” per a NBC press release. The shows creator Bryan Fuller couldn’t help but tweet his happiness over the show’s renewal.
“We’re so proud of Bryan’s vision for a show that is richly textured, psychologically complex, and very compelling. There are many great stories still to be told,” said NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke, in a statement.
Hannibal has it’s season finale on June 20, and we’ll have to wait until next year to see more of Lecter sniffing Will, and if they’ll continue using French cooking terms for the episode titles.
[Ed. Note: Sorry for elbowing my way into yet another of Brittani’s posts, but I can’t contain myself. There truly is not a TV show that I look forward to as much as “Hannibal”. I mean, I put my laptop DOWN and turn my phone OFF. I know, right?? – DivaJulia]
