The NBC series Hannibal is one of the best horror shows of all time, and it’s difficult to replace it. That’s why we’ve no doubt that fans are eagerly waiting for Hannibal Season 4. But will there even be a 4th season of the popular series? Or was the 3rd season the last one? Here’s everything we know about Hannibal Season 4. Keep scrolling down!
Is There a Season 4 of Hannibal?
Unfortunately, no. There isn’t a Season 4 of Hannibal. The 3rd season of the horror series was released on June 4, 2015. After only a short time, on June 22, 2015, NBC announced that Hannibal was canceled due to low ratings. We know that it’s surprising for you that Hannibal had low ratings, as it was considered by critics and viewers as one of the best series in the horror genre and one of the best TV series of all time. Moreover, Bryan Fuller has always talked about more Hannibal seasons. Nevertheless, the channel decided not to renew the series. So we can say that it’s very unlikely that there will be Hannibal Season 4.
Did Hannibal Have a Proper Ending?
It’s quite a controversial question whether Hannibal had a proper ending or not. Some viewers felt that the ending of the series wasn’t satisfying enough, while others thought the series finale was very good. First of all, let’s remember what happened at the end of Hannibal. In the last minutes of Hannibal Season 3 Episode 13, we saw Will and Hannibal falling off a cliff after murdering Francis Dolarhyde. Just before the fall, Will said to Hannibal, “It’s beautiful,” probably referring to the murder they committed together. Then they fell down and very likely died.
Some viewers claim that the characters didn’t have a proper ending, and therefore the series didn’t meet the audience’s expectations. However, we believe that the series finale was a satisfactory conclusion, as it brought Will’s metamorphosis to a close. Throughout the series, Hannibal believed that Will was just like him and tried to make him find his true self – a serial killer in that sense. However, Will wasn’t brave and aware enough to recognize the evil side in himself, unless he killed Francis and enjoyed it. Therefore, his statement at the end shows that Hannibal has achieved his goal and Will has finally reconciled with the evil in himself.
Also, the series has shown us that Hannibal and Will are actually two very similar characters who hold up a mirror to each other. In the very last scene, they embrace to unite and be whole before they fall. So we think Hannibal had a proper ending.

Hannibal was removed from Netflix because the streaming platform only had a twelve-month license to release the series. For this reason, the NBC series was removed from Netflix on June 5, 2021.
