Hope you're hungry for more 'Hannibal,' everyone, because the series has just been given the greenlight for a third course. Bon appétit, indeed!
NBC has granted the Hannibal Lecter thriller with a Season 3 renewal despite its very difficult Friday night timeslot, which is not exactly a ratings goldmine. We guess it just goes to show that nothing can keep a good cannibal series down.

Additionally, the network also announced that its popular freshman comedy 'About a Boy' will be back for a second season next fall. Located in a much more ratings-friendly position on Tuesday nights, the series regularly beats sitcom rivals on ABC and FOX in the demo department.
But as we've come to find out this week, with renewals come cancellations, and it seems NBC has decided to part ways with 'Revolution,' opting not to pick the drama up for another season. Ironically, this could start a revolution among dedicated fans.
And what's sure to be the most depressing news of the day, the Peacock channel has opted to bring 'Community' to a close after five seasons. Plan your freakouts accordingly.
NBC has also added freshman sitcom 'Growing Up Fisher' to its ever-growing list of cancellations, as well as dramas 'Believe' and 'Crisis.' The end of 'Believe' must hit especially hard for J.J. Abrams, given how this marks his third show cancellation this year — first with 'Almost Human,' and now with 'Revolution' and 'Believe.'
In more cancellation news, Jonathan Rhys Meyers' 'Dracula' has also officially been canceled after one season.
