Hannibal returns for a third season beginning on June 4, and with just a couple weeks left before the new season premiere we’ve got a long new Hannibal Season 3 promo that teases a bunch of new developments in the show. This promo features the major cast members explaining some of where the characters are now, and what’s different this year. “Season three is like a blank slate” says Caroline Dhavernas, who plays Alana Bloom.
There’s also the promise of the arrival of a familiar character, Francis Dolarhyde, played by Richard Armitage, who we see in this video.
Note: If you haven’t seen the second season of Hannibal and are planning to, what follows may feature a few spoilers. (But that’s been the case for all of this season’s promos so far.) Read More »

It’s probably a bad idea to accept a taste of anything Hannibal the brilliant psychiatrist/cannibal has to offer, but it’s an excellent idea to get a taste of Hannibal the acclaimed NBC drama. Especially when the taste is as delectable as this one is.
The very first trailer shows Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) looking for his old friend Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), in what appears to be Florence, Italy. It seems he’s got a pretty important message to deliver. Newly minted series regular Gillian Anderson also swings by. Watch the Hannibal Season 3 trailer after the jump. Read More »

Bryan Fuller may not be quite at George R.R. Martin‘s level when it comes to killing off beloved characters, but Hannibal is still a show about a serial killer. It should come as no surprise that from time to time, characters get shot in the face, chopped into pieces, or braised in a nice wine sauce.
What is shocking is that sometimes, those characters nevertheless find ways to come back. At the Hannibal Comic-Con panel Thursday, Fuller confirmed the returns of two fan favorite characters believed to be dead. Hit the jump to find out who, and to get some more details on Hannibal Season 3. (Be aware the spoilers follow.)
Update: We’ve added video of the full Comic Con panel (minus footage clips) for Hannibal.

After the jump, watch Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy, and the rest of the cast screw up during takes and screw around between them.

Two very different shows with geek appeal are coming back for another season. NBC has just renewed Hannibal, which brings us one step closer to the fulfillment of producer Bryan Fuller‘s vision of a seven-season run. And The Goldbergs got the nod for a second season from ABC.
But all isn’t well everywhere. In addition to axing Community, NBC has killed off Revolution, and the future of Parenthood and Dracula is currently uncertain.
Update: Dracula has officially been canceled. Details below.
