10 canceled TV shows that deserve one more season
The series was cancelled following the filming of this episode which left fans wondering, what would be in store for the fourth season? With the selection of streaming sites (including its home network, NBC) getting in on the revival game, it stands to reason that Hannibal is ripe for a return to this world.
Hannibal carved a very special place for itself on network TV with three seasons of boundary pushing drama airing content on NBC that viewers would not expect to see outside of Showtime or HBO in 2013-2015. But the “shock factor” of Hannibal was only one of the ways that the Bryan Fuller and Michael Green took the characters from Thomas Harris’ novels and let them blossom into something beyond what fans could imagine.
The series was a story of obsession, desire, and what happens when you allow yourself to give into both. It was a love story between Hannibal Lecter and Will Graham. It was everything that makes compelling television. And in season 3, Hannibal literally pushed itself and fans over the edge with a series finale that would leave fans wanting more for years. Hannibal says to Will just before they go over the edge, “This is the life I wanted for you.” Will replies, “It’s beautiful.” What would a vision of that life look like?
Fuller has been having a bit of a tumultuous time getting projects off the ground and keeping them there. Shows like American Gods and Star Trek: Discovery have turned out to be just fine after turning over creative hands, but Hannibal only runs with Fuller’s blood coursing through its veins. If a season 4 were to happen in time, it could only be in Fuller’s capable hands.
We here at Hypable (especially on our ReWatchable podcast) have said it a million times before, but we’re happy to say it a million times more: Agent Carter, both the badass woman and the fantastic show, deserves more.<./a>
Cancelled before it had the chance to dive into just how Peggy Carter and Howard Stark founded S.H.I.E.L.D., the show has so much more to add to the rich history of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it. Not only that, but Peggy Carter is a hero to women everywhere and we deserve to see ourselves reflected back at us through a capable, strong woman that learns from her mistakes and strives to be the best version of herself that she can be.
The character is already starring in an upcoming episode of the new Disney+ show What If?, was brought back in Endgame as a sort of trophy, and is rumored to make an appearance in the final season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D..
Peggy Carter is more than just a gimmick or an Easter egg that Marvel can trot out whenever they feel like it has been a while since they’ve dangled a carrot in front of their fans. She’s much, much more than a convenient plot device or a prize to be won. Agent Carter, perhaps more than any other show in existence, deserves at least one more season.
