All ‘Hannibal’ Episodes Coming To Netflix In June

Ever since the critically acclaimed TV series Hannibal was axed by NBC in 2015 after just three seasons, fans have clamored for a fourth go-round.

That may yet come, but in the meantime, every episode of the show–based on the character from the Oscar-winning Silence of the Lambs–will come to Netflix starting June 5, according to

Netflix announced the good news for the many fans of the series on its “See What’s Next” Twitter page, writing: “All three seasons of Bryan Fuller’s bloody brilliant Hannibal will be available on Netflix in the U.S. starting June 5.”

As explained, the popular TV show–based on the book by Thomas Harris–follows FBI consultant Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) who helps authorities solve gruesome murder cases. As fate would have it, he consults on a case with psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and a friendship blooms. What Graham doesn’t know is that Lecter is also a cannabalistic serial killer.

The series–created by Bryan Fuller–starred Caroline Dhavernas, Laurence Fishburne and Gillian Anderson, along with Dancy and Mikkelsen.

Following the conclusion of the series on NBC, fans have screamed for a fourth season, citing the fact that several storylines were never wrapped up by the end of Season 3.

Last year, Fuller went on record, saying he was not giving up on another original season of Hannibal. He even went so far as to hint that he may delve into material from the hit movie for grist for his creative mill.

In related news, CBS recently announced (as reported here in Horror News Network) that a new series entitled Clarice–that will spotlight the resourceful FBI agent Clarice Starling from the film–is in the pipeline. The show reportedly will take place one year after the events in the blockbuster movie.

So, could this Netflix event reignite the call for additional original episodes of Hannibal? Keep reading Horror News Network for the latest on the future of this “bloody brilliant” series.
