It’s either Will Graham (played by Hugh Dancy) has gone out of his mind or NBC’s “Hannibal” is truly a real mind-bending TV series. After everything Dr. Hannibal Lecter (played by Mads Mikkelsen) has done to Will in the 2nd season of NBC’s “Hannibal”, Will forgave Hannibal.
Yes, you heard that right. Will Graham forgave Hannibal for almost killing him! Oh, we wonder why.
“Hannibal” is one of the TV series that will make its triumphant return this year. Before the 3rd season of the series arrives on NBC this summer, the series uploaded a new teaser trailer on their official YouTube channel, giving us an early look at the new season.
It seems like the 3rd season will continue to bend viewers’ minds after the brutal ending in the 2nd season of NBC’s “Hannibal”. The new season will centre on Dr. Hannibal Lecter, who is currently on the run with his psychiatrist, Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier (played by Gillian Anderson). Programme creator Bryan Fuller and executive producer Martha De Laurentis revealed that the story will be adapted from Thomas Harris’ novel “Red Dragon”, followed by “The Silence of the Lambs” in Season 4.
We kind of mix it up in a way that, since we are telling a fugitive story now, after ‘Red Dragon,’ because in the novel, once Hannibal guts Graham, he’s immediately apprehended. In our timeline, he gets away so we are pulling that story up. Then telling a different story when we get to that storyline after ‘Silence of the Lambs.
Raul Esparza’s Dr. Frederick Chilton will return to make a special guest appearance in Season 3 while Eddie Izzard’s Abel Gideon will be back via a flashback. “The Wolverine” star Tao Okamoto will star in the series as Chiyo, Lady Murasaki’s attendant while Joe Anderson will replace Michael Pitt as Mason Verger. It was recently announced that Nina Arianda and “The Hobbit” star Richard Armitage are joining the series as Will Graham’s wife and Francis Dolarhyde a.k.a. “Tooth Fairy” the serial killer respectively.
Produced by Gaumont International Television, Dino De Laurentiis Company and Living Dead Guy Productions, NBC’s “Hannibal” is executive produced by Fuller, Martha De Laurentiis, Jesse Alexander, Chris Brancato, Sara Colleton, Katie O’Connell, Elisa Roth, Sidonie Dumas, and Christophe Riandee.
The premiere date for the 3rd season of the series has yet to be announced but we can’t wait to watch it! :D
