NBC Serves a Second Helping of 'Hannibal'


It was a nail-biter, but NBC just announced that they have ordered a second season of Hannibal. The show, which has met both critical acclaim (and has been fiercely championed by yours truly) and controversy (due to the violence) will return during 2014's midseason with 13 episodes. The ratings for Hannibal have been modest but steady for the struggling network, averaging a 2.0 rating (about 4.7 million viewers) in live viewings and jumping 75% in DVR playbacks.

When reached for comment, executive producer Bryan Fuller told FEARnet exclusively, "A second serving of Hannibal will be as tasty as the first, if not more so, given the ridiculous cliffhanger that we leave poor Will Graham in at the end of the first season!"
