Psychological thriller 'Hannibal' has been passed over for a fourth series by both Netflix and Amazon Prime Instant Video, the show's showrunner announced this week.

However, all is not lost for the cancelled NBC series. Showrunner Bryan Fuller is still "investigating possibilities" in the hope that it will resurrected.

Fuller tweeted the news on Monday.

The critically-acclaimed show was dropped by NBC earlier this year. Fans reacted with a petition: to date, more than 76,000 people have signed it.

'Hannibal' focusses on the early life of criminal psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter – of 'The Silence of the Lambs'-fame – before he started eating people.

Series four was set to feature Richard Armitage as serial killer Francis Dolarhyde.

Shows including 'Ripper Street' and 'The Mindy Project' have previously been saved by streaming services. But if Amazon and Netflix have opted not to pick it up, things don't look good for 'Hannibal'.

Series three is currently airing on Sky Living on Wednesdays at 10pm. Enjoy, it could be the last.
