Great Hannibal Season 3 Preview Introduces “Completely New Hannibal”

NBC has unveiled an excellent Hannibal season 3 preview, giving us an extended look at what we’re to expect going into the third chapter.

Obviously, spoilers ahead for those not up to date.

Season 2’s finale saw Mads Mikkelsen’s Dr. Hannibal Lecter on an airplane with Gillian Anderson’s Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier by his side, a surprising culmination after the bloodshed and mayhem that came with the long-awaited confrontation. The third season sees Hannibal and Bedelia living in contemporary Florentine society, presumably under the identities of two of Hannibal’s victims. The chase is still on though, and Hugh Dancy’s Will Graham is still on his tail.

The piece also gives us our first proper look at Richard Armitage as Francis Dolarhyde, the serial killer from Thomas Harris Red Dragon book, also known as the Toothfairy.

Hannibal season 3 hits NBC on June 4 (U.S. date). We. Can’t. Wait.

Hannibal season 3 pilot synopsis:

Having successfully escaped FBI capture, Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) is moving through the European landscape, with Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) in tow. But Dr Lecter’s old habits and opulent tastes are still on display as he settles into a new identity and life in Florence, Italy, working at the Palazzo Capponi museum. Glimpses into the past help inform his relationship with Bedelia, a pairing not clearly defined as friend or foe.”
