Put down the knife and back away from the NBC executive! The network has renewed the critically acclaimed drama Hannibal for Season 3, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Not only is the drama one of the best-looking shows on TV, it's also the first to be born from the brilliant mind of Bryan Fuller that's lasted more than two seasons. (Fuller's previous series Dead Like Me and Pushing Daisies each made it to two seasons before getting the axe, but Wonderfalls didn't even get to finish its first season before Fox cut it short.) Who knew that the secret to success was beautiful but disgusting murders crafted around complex characters?
Additionally, the network has renewed the much-less-dark Jason Katims comedy About A Boy for Season 2.
While it's party time for Fuller, Katims, and fans of those two shows, it's nail-biting time for NBC series still left on the bubble. Basically, every bubble renewal that comes in lessens the chances that other bubble shows will get another season. I'm looking at you, Revolution and Community. UPDATE: Both Revolution and Community, plus three other shows, have been felled by NBC's axe.
Stick around, folks, because we expect more renewals (and probably some cancellations) to be announced shortly!
Are you excited for more Hannibal and About A Boy?
