Bryan Fuller is really trying to hold on to this show, but it seems that even though Hannibal takes a bite out of someone, no one wants to take a bite out of Hannibal.
NBC's fan favorite Hannibal was canceled, and the public was hit with an onslaught of "Fannibals" including our other favorite twisted creator, Ryan Murphy.
I'm so sad NBC has cancelled "Hannibal." It's a fantastic fearless show and Bryan Fuller is an amazing talent. #SaveHannibal

The same hashtag was trending worldwide, which has us to believe that though people may be not watching it at it's specific air date, people are watching, and they love it. So with this public outcry, Fuller hopes that it will help in terms of trying to get a streaming giant to pick up the series.
“The fact that the fannibals have been so passionate about the show and so enthusiastic, it always helps,” Fuller told Variety last month. “It may not be the thing that seals the deal, but it is an indicator of audience interest.”
Fuller was very excited to tell everyone that he'd been in discussions with Amazon and Netflix, but yesterday, he and Variety announced that neither wanted a taste:

The very public search continues, and what's sad is, (insert my own personal opinion here) Fuller creates some great series, and he's got bad luck for them falling flat. Does anyone remember Pushing Daises? Anyone who loved that show just got a drop pit in their stomach. Yes, that was his too.
Fingers crossed that we find a home for Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen... Unless Mads would just like to continue being in Rihanna's music videos.
We will keep you up to date if the show gets picked up. I know for me, I'm seething for another season of Mr. Lecter.
