“We’re so proud of Bryan’s vision for a show that is richly textured, psychologically complex, and very compelling,” NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said in a statement. “There are many great stories still to be told.”

Hannibal has struggled in the ratings, but it's one of the network's few critically acclaimed scripted programs. We're very excited it's coming back.
