Hannibal's Odds Of Finding A New Home Get Worse

hannibal posterSeems Television series no longer fade away quietly after being cancelled. We saw it with Constantine earlier this year; producers of a series shopping a show around after it got the ax from their original network. Hannibal seems to be the latest show making the second chance circuit but I think the odds are against it. The series was going to lose it's showrunner already as Bryan Fuller is now working on American Gods for Starz.

Now Deadline is reporting that the contracts for the actors expired last night and were not extended. Which means folks like Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen are now free to go out and find new series or film work. Laurence Fishburne has already booked work on the A&E remake of Roots. This makes the odds that another network or streaming service will want to pick up the series very slim.
