Just as Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller had revealed talk of a contingency should the show be dropped, NBC renewed the SciFiNow-approved serial killer horror for a third season.

Deadline reports that despite low ratings, it has the youngest median age of any 10pm drama, which has probably contributed to its status at NBC.

Hannibal Season 2 begins on 6 May 2014 on Sky Living. You can read our massive Season 2 interview with Bryan Fuller in the new SciFiNow, and you can buy Hannibal Season One on Blu-ray for £23 at Amazon.co.uk.
