NBC Shifts 'Hannibal,' 'Aquarius' to Saturdays

Despite showrunner Bryan Fuller doing everything in his power to continue "Hannibal," today brought more bad news for fans of the cancelled NBC series. The network is shifting both "Hannibal" and "Aquarius," the recently renewed Charles Manson drama starring David Duchovny, to Saturday nights reports Deadline. No word yet on whether the new programming block will be billed as 'Serial Killer Saturday.'

It's been a rough road for the critically-acclaimed but little-watched "Hannibal," based on characters from Thomas Harris' novel "Red Dragon." The network axed the show on June 22, and last week it was reported that both Amazon and Netflix passed on airing a potential fourth season of the tête-à-tête between cannibal killer Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and FBI profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy). Still, the show still had a presence this weekend at Comic-Con international and Fuller said the story could continue as a film.

For those looking to see how the the third season plays out, they should adjust their DVRs for Saturday nights moving forward.
