‘Hannibal’ and ‘About a Boy’ Renewed by NBC

Hannibal Season 2 Episode 8 Su-Zakana (2)

Hannibal is now officially the longest running Bryan Fuller show. EW confirms NBC gave the dark, psychological drama a third season pick up. Hannibal was very much on the bubble. While the series has a passionate fan base and strong critical support, it has not brought in monster ratings for the network. However, quality won out once more because Will and Lecter will return to screens in the 2014-2015 season.

The network also renewed their hit Tuesday night comedy About a Boy. The midseason series has improved NBC’s ratings in its Tuesdays at 9PM time slot by 20% since its premiere.

NBC will announce their full 2014-2015 season lineup during their upfronts presentation next week.
