Every canceled fan-favorite draws allegations as to which components caused its loss of life, and NBC’s Hannibal was no different. The dim and dreamy Mads Mikkelsen-Hugh Dancy drama simply didn’t contain the viewers, something company Martha De Laurentiis believes owes for you to piracy.
Speaking to Yahoo, Signifiant Laurentiis dropped at least several responsibility for Hannibal’ersus demise at the foot of cord-cutting pirates, distinctive given that the series achieved #5 on 2013's listing of most-pirated series. Even as nearly all episodes were accessible to download next-day, De Laurentiis presented:
When nearly one-third of your crowd for Hannibal is coming coming from pirated sites… You don’to have to know calculus to do the mathematics. If a show is actually stolen, it makes it tough, if not impossible, in order to fairly compensate a new crew and keep a string in production.
There’s however the outside possibility which Hannibal could reconvene at the table a few years down the line, perhaps a mini-series or movie to quicker schedule around its talent. In any case, Dancy stays busy with Hulu’s The Path, while Mads Mikkelsen works on a little to do with Star Wars, and Bigger himself gears approximately shoot American Gods in Gta.
Plenty of series are able to thrive in spite of piracy, but could Hannibal have been a perfect tornado of illegal downloading and cult results? Could piracy affect each of our chances of ever getting some kind of followup?
