The Ax Falls on 'Hannibal'

The current, third season of "Hannibal" will be its last.

TVLine reports NBC has opted not to order a fourth season of Bryan Fuller's psychological thriller, which has battled falling ratings.

“NBC has allowed us to craft a television series that no other broadcast network would have dared," Fuller said in a statement, "and kept us on the air for three seasons despite Cancellation Bear Chow ratings and images that would have shredded the eyeballs of lesser Standards & Practices enforcers."

The network added, “We have been tremendously proud of ‘Hannibal’ over its three seasons. Bryan and his team of writers and producers, as well as our incredible actors, have brought a visual palette of storytelling that has been second to none in all of television — broadcast or cable. We thank Gaumont and everyone involved in the show for their tireless efforts that have made ‘Hannibal’ an incredible experience for audiences around the world.

"Hannibal" will wrap up in August, with Fuller moving on as co-showrunner of the Starz adaptation of Neil Gaiman's "American Gods."
