Starz Channel, Please Pick Up Hannibal, Season 4

This petition had 5,837 supporters

In June 2015, Fannibals (fans of the show "Hannibal") received the news that our beloved show, "Hannibal," was cancelled by NBC. For the Fannibals around the world, this was heartbreaking and we appealed to NBC to save the show, to no avail. However, all hope is not lost.

Our (well, the "Hannibal") showrunner, Bryan Fuller, has said in numerous interviews that he wants to continue the story; that the most exciting chapter is yet to be told. Furthermore, the cast have all said they want to continue the show as well.

Our fandom is extremely loyal. Every week, when the show aired, Fannibals trended, on Twitter, for hours. Every week, we grabbed one of the top five Nielsen Twitter TV ratings, as well. During the week of the finale, not only did we grab the number one spot on the Nielsen Twitter ratings, but we slayed every other show on that list.

Every week since the Season 3 finale, Fannibals have been participating in weekly re-watches of "Hannibal," starting from Season 1. There is a U.S. re-watch on Thursdays and an international re-watch on Saturdays. Fannibals re-watch and live-tweet because we are not ready for "Hannibal" to end. We would follow the show wherever it goes. You would be hard-pressed to find a more dedicated fandom.

"Hannibal" is thought-provoking and boundary-pushing. The writing is beautiful; the acting is superb; the cinematography is truth, the entire show is a work of art. Years from now, it will be one of those shows that gets discussed in university classrooms as an example of how great television storytelling can be, and the students will wonder, "Why was it cancelled?" 

We know that Starz Channel has a current relationship with Fuller, as he is working on "American Gods." It is obvious that Starz must highly respect Fuller's work. Moreover, Fuller has spoken highly of Starz. 

It is with this knowledge that we ask that Starz please make the decision to pick up "Hannibal" for a fourth season.
