NBC has run out of patience with its low-rated Thursday drama tandem of “Aquarius” and “Hannibal“, revealing Monday that they will move over to little-watched Saturday nights. As fans might recall, when ratings began to sink for Smash, NBC finished off the episodes after rescheduling the series.
The network effectively canceled “Hannibal” last month, announcing that “Hannibal” would not return to the network after its current 13-episode season wraps, but renewed “Aquarius” for a second season. So that explains why it was also moved along with Hannibal.
Check out what Fuller and more of the Hannibal cast and creators told us about the Red Dragon story at Comic-Con in the video below. If you can’t watch live this Saturday, we urge you to use a site like TweetDeck or Hootsuite to post your #NakamaForever tweets in advance, scheduled for no earlier than 9 p.m. EST.
Alana (Caroline Dhavernas), distressed that Will has been endangered along with Hannibal, plots a rescue; and Hannibal, once again in contact with his old patient Margot (guest star Katharine Isabelle), finds it irresistible to remind her that Mason will never make good on his promises.
Aquarius is a period crime drama created by John McNamara, set in Los Angeles back in 1967. Aquarius stars David Duchovny and Grey Damon.
Aquarius, which has been paired with the already-cancelled Hannibal, will air at 9 p.m. on Saturdays starting immediately.
