Hannibal Season Three: First Look

Posted by The Daily Zombies Thursday, January 22, 2015

Set to premiere this Summer, brace yourself for the first trailer of the Season Three of Bryan Fuller's deliciously macabre Hannibal. Indeed, bar none, the single most-anticipated returning television series of 2015. 

When the world give us lemons, we make lemonades... and think about the returning season of Bryan Fuller's Hannibal this Summer. Yes, there is yet hope in this wasteland. 

With numerous pieces of major casting news making the headlines at most major entertainment sites, NBC has went ahead to unleash the first trailer of the almost miraculous third season of one of the most acclaimed TV series in recent years (which is an incredible feat given the fact that we are living in the Golden Age of Television with the likes of Sherlock, True Detectives, Game of Thrones, and House of Cards). With no further ado, check out the trailer right below and come back to join us on our rundown of the recent casting news, both amazing and "spoiler-rific".

"I forgive you." Fancy that coming from our favorite tortured FBI special investigator Will Graham (astoundingly portrayed by Hugh Dancy) after the slaughterhouse scenario we witnessed in "Mizumono", the sense-shattering Season Two finale. With Dr. Hannibal Lecter (breathtakingly portrayed by Mads Mikkelsen) and Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier (an amazing recurring character turned regular in Season Three) fleeing the country, we find ourselves right at the gates of Thomas Harris's Red Dragon.

As all fans of the series are well aware of, Fuller originally explained at the start of the show that his basic outline for the series would utilise the first three seasons for the building of relationship between Graham and Lecter, ending in the eventual capture of Lecter in the hands of Graham by the end of Season Three. From Season Four onwards, the events of Red Dragon will unfold with the introduction of new antagonist Francis Dolarhyde, AKA The Tooth Fairy. This will then be followed by the fifth season on The Silence of the Lambs (the universe will finally be at bliss by then), the sixth season on Hannibal, the 1999 follow-up novel, and finally, a seventh and final season with an original storyline to conclude the saga. Of course, we have heard Fuller mentioning about how he is revising the original plan since the rights to The Silence of the Lambs are not secured (okay, the universe is meant to stay in its chaotic state after all). But steps to Red Dragon is definitely on the way.

First up, it has been announced that Richard Armitage, now better known for his role as  Thorin Oakenshield in Peter Jackson's film trilogy adaptation of The Hobbit, will be appearing in Season Three as Francis Dolarhyde (The Tooth Fairy) in a cameo role. What interest us more is the fact that Fuller has disclosed that Dolarhyde has in fact made an off-screen cameo as early as back in the pilot episode, "Apéritif", when Graham first demonstrate his uncanny ability reconstructing a crime scene. Yes, shooting the victims' throats so that they can die slowly to witness what he was doing, Indeed the modus operandi of The Tooth Fairy.

Apart from this, it should also be noted that the role of Mason Verger has been recast with Michael Pitt walking away from the show with Joe Anderson (whom we last saw as Terry Perrish, the brother of Daniel Radcliffe's Ig Perrish in Horns) filling the role as the severely disfigured version the deranged billionaire. For those who have seen Gary Oldman's unrecognisable rendition in the film and curious how Anderson's take will look like, Anderson has actually took to his Instagram to give us a brief first look at the character. While he has eventually taken down the pictures, you can thank Variety for capturing these pictures for our pleasure right now.

And finally, in a most "spoiler-rific" news, a new role will be portrayed by Tony winner Nina Arianda, who have previously worked with Dancy on Broadway in Venus in Furs. And the role will be Molly Graham, better known to those familiar with the novel as Will's wife. The current word out there is that we will experience a significant time jump at the start of the season with Will either at the beginning of his new relationship or already married. 

For now, let's crossed our fingers till Summer for the premiere of "Antipasto". Yes, Italian is in the menu this season. Can't wait till we get to the Chinese menu.
