They say marriage is a sacred institution. One that is not to be entered into lightly and as the traditional vows go “Till death do us part” and judging by the new Hannibal season three trailer, death may be more imminent in a surprise new union.
In the closing moments of the season two finale, Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) was seen leaving on a jet plane with his former therapist Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) and it seems by the trailer above, this new relationship will be the focus of season three.
Showrunner Bryan Fuller recently told Digital Spy that Anderson has “quite a big role in the first half of the season”, and has one “hilarious” episode in particular. It’s such a treat because you don’t see a lot of comedy from Gillian Anderson in her roles, but she’s very funny as a human being and incredibly funny as an actress when she turns it on,” he said.
USA: Thursday, June 4 on NBC
Australia: TBA on FOX8
The first look at Hannibal’s third season is ready for devouring and judging by the video, it looks like we’re in for a mighty meal.
The trailer for the cult-favorite, blood soaked thriller shows Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) alive and well after his encounter with Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) obsessivly on the hunt tracking down the killer with a penchant for flesh who is now on the run.
Gillian Anderson is back (of course, but this time in a more permanent role) as Bedelia Du Maurier and a new face in the form of Tao Okamoto as Chio who, as Fuller states, plays a twist on the Lady Murasaki character from the Hannibal novels.
Check out the trailer below:
Showrunner Bryan Fuller announced that season three will pull heavily from Thomas Harris’ novels Red Dragon and Hannibal Rising, mashing up elements from both novels and revealing a very different origin story for Hannibal.
