‘Hannibal’ Season 2 poster and premiere date revealed

hannibal spotlight

(From Screen Rant) Hannibal Lecter is a cannibal. Unfortunately Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) and the rest of the FBI did not get this particular memo during the first season of NBC’s Hannibal, which concluded with poor Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) being framed for murder by Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and locked up in the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane.

Let’s hope they at least let him wash the taste of regurgitated human ear out of his mouth first.

Since Hannibal‘s first season wrapped up this summer there’s been very little information to go on besides a very interesting poster of Hannibal exposed for the monster he is.

Showrunner Bryan Fuller revealed at Comic Con this year that season two will begin with a two-parter that will serve as “a new pilot for what the new season can be,” and that the third episode will be about a trial.

Almost certainly Will’s trial, but who knows where the first two episodes might take us.

Hannibal fans can now finally start counting down the days until season two begins, as NBC has unveiled a new poster for the series and a premiere date for the next season on the network’s official Twitter account.

If injustice makes you squeamish then look away now.

Despite being the good guy of the show, Will has suffered from his fair share of psychological upset, due in large part to his ability to empathize fully with serial killers and see inside the designs of their killing.

The advanced encephalitis that Hannibal helped to cover up probably didn’t help either. After watching Will slowly unravel and suffer from blackouts and hallucinations as the first season progressed, perhaps it’s no surprise that his friends and colleagues were willing to accept the possibility that he could be the Chesapeake Ripper.

Based on this poster, it looks like Will might well respond to his new home by going legitimately insane, but he could just as easily be plotting Hannibal’s downfall from the confines of his prison.

We will find out either way on Friday 28th February 2014, when Hannibal returns to NBC.
