? How can you not renew this already nbc? And excellent episode. The parallel between the social worker and Peter with Hannibal and Will is also great to see.
 
I’m so glad they’re out of the asylum and back to cases.

Great episode. Just realized that Margot is Mason’s sister. Mason Verger was the former patient of Hannibal’s in the movie “Hannibal”. Things just got more interesting.

NBC Renews ‘Hannibal’ For Third Season

 

NBC is putting more Hannibal on the menu. The network has given a third-season pickup to the series, from Bryan Fuller and Gaumont International Television. Based on Thomas Harris’ characters, the gory psychological thriller focuses on the budding relationship between hannibal__140509172551.jpegFBI special investigator Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen). The pre-upfront renewal is a nice change for the show, which was left hanging last year until after the upfronts before getting a second-season pickup.Hannibal has done OK in the Friday 10 PM slot as part of NBC’s genre block. So far this season, it is averaging a 1.4 in adults 18-49 and 3.6 million viewers in most current ratings after a big DVR boost. Hannibal also is the youngest 10 PM drama on the broadcast networks with a median age of 48.2. The series is done under a different model, which allows the producers to make it for a $750,000 license fee from NBC, a fraction of what a high-end drama like that goes for. And I hear that, with a SVOD deal for Hannibal kicking in that NBC shares in, the license fee is poised to become even lower in Season 3.

i am absolutely shocked at how beautiful and shocking that finale was wow. if nbc had not renewed hannibal i would have been satisfied with that ending. Simply one of the best shows on television. Period. Cable OR network. Tragically still one of the best kept secrets on tv though Hopefully season 3 will get the huge ratings this show so rightly deserves.

‘Hannibal’ Season 3 Casts Gillian Anderson As Series Regular
 
Hannibal-Anderson.jpg

In just two short seasons, NBC’s Hannibal has made a name for itself on the backs of two specific characteristics: one, it’s incredibly violent. If you’re a patron of premium cable channels, you can probably name a half-dozen shows out there in TV land that are more violent, but Hannibal exists in the categorically less edgy realm of network television. It’s a twisted miracle that the show manages to be as gory as it is, when we consider the source.
 
It’s also incredibly well cast; maybe there’s simply no better way to offset carnage than by pulling in a talented core troupe capable of lending humanity, and a sense of refinement, to the show’s Grand Guignol/arthouse mien. Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen are tremendous as the leads – but there’s so much quality showcased among both the supporting (Laurence Fishburne, Caroline Dhavernas) and recurring players (Anna Chlumsky, Raúl Esparaza, Katherine Isabelle, Michael Pitt), that picking favorites is a task that’s difficult at best.
 
Counted among the latter group of performers is Gillian Anderson, playing psychotherapist to Mikkelsen’s psychopath. Turns out there’s good news in store for the X-Files alum: in season 3 she’ll be bumped up to “series regular” status, following in the wake of May’s viscera-soaked finale. According to TVLine, Anderson just signed on the deal this week, and while it’s not known what, exactly, Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier and Hannibal will be getting up to once the show’s third go-round premieres, the decision gives her role an immediate boost in newfound importance.
 
Executive producer Bryan Fuller graciously offered some additional commentary alongside the announcement, though in truth his words only confirm what we’ve known or guessed at based on the Hannibal panel at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. Season three picks up a year after the final moments of ‘Mizumono‘, which left viewers with the sight of Lecter and Du Maurier jetting off to destinations unknown; as surmised from hints dropped at the convention, the pair is in Europe, though “why” is anybody’s guess. (Probably the food.)

But what other business do Lecter and Du Maurier have abroad? Could be that they’re just lying low, but the good doctor doesn’t strike as the type to merely lay low; he might, in other words, have ulterior motives behind taking a trip to Italy. But if this new development means more Anderson and more Mikkelsen, the former’s promotion should really only be seen as a plus (even in a show that’s already fit to bust with great acting). We’ll just have to patiently wait to suss out the particulars of their travel arrangement.
 
It’s interesting that so little has been said thus far of the other parties involved in the aftermath of ‘Mizumono’, or what has become of each of them. In point of fact, we might know more about new characters expected to put in appearances in season three than we do about the fates of Will, Crawford, and Alana (though it’s a pretty safe bet that Will made it out alive). Mysteries abound.
 
Hannibal‘s third season will air on NBC in 2015.

I really wish they would make...

Hannibal.
A true story based on the Carthaginian General, Hannibal.

One of the best generals of all time! (In no order, Alexander, phyrus, Hannibal, mouhammed, ghengus, Patton). Okay... Maybe my Americanness throws Patton in there...

Who wouldn't love a Hannibal mini-series or show? Or movie! Many other ancient people are talked about, but I have never seen or heard about a Hannibal movie...

Every time i see something about Hannibal the made up serial killer, i always hope its about the legendary general. But it's not. One day thou... In day...

Hey, maybe if they make a Hannibal comic book, then it can be a movie!
