NBC Renews 'Hannibal' and 'About a Boy,' Cancels 'Revolution,' 'Community' & More


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. 

Keep checking back here for more NBC renewals/cancellations as they come in.

Wow three shows that I decided to invest in and three shows that have long and complicated stories to them and now Thanks to NBC three shows that I will never get to know how they end. THis is my last season watching any NBC show regardless of how impressive they might be cause when it comes right down to it NDC doesn't respect their viewers and the shows will be cancelled anyways. So why even bother.

So next season even if they come up with a show that seems reaaly great , I will be boycotting NBC. We as viewers have given you our trust and in return you can't even be bothered with giving us some type of closure , no you just cancel show after show regardless of how many faithful fans are watching.

NBC sux

Dracula and Revolution 2 of the best shows this past season probably cancelled to make way for more reality crap! When will NBC learn a lot of people dont watch season 1 of sci fi because they know they invest time and get a cancellation. You did the same with Jericho. NBC needs more nuts sent to them!

Sad to see "Believe" and "Revolution" go. I feel like an idiot for sticking with "Revolution" for so long. I just know things aren't going to be tied up well. Almost feels like I've been watching Fox.

Well, if revolution is canceled does this mean Rockne o'Bannon will be back to working on Defiance? Given its the closest he has done to Farscape in quite awhile, Id like that a lot.

I just hope that they'll give us a conclusion in the next (last) 2 episodes of Revolution ...

This networks must understand that people don't watch new shows because they'll probably get cancel anyway, and then they'll never get a proper ending ... I'm still burned from FlashForward and The Event ...

What an idiot you are, calling someone a moron just because their tastes apparently differ from yours.
