HANNIBAL Season 2 Teaser Poster Is Appropriately Odd and Creepy

     October 1, 2013


NBC took a gamble last year with a straight-to-series order for a Hannibal Lecter TV show from Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller, and the result was 13 episodes of pure dramatic TV bliss.  With Hannibal, Fuller not only crafted an utterly captivating psychological thriller, but also a comment on the truly horrifying nature of violence and the subsequent desensitization of entertainment consumers.  It was a swell start to the series, and in anticipation of the upcoming second season, Fuller has unveiled a wonderfully creepy teaser poster that hints at a decidedly different Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) from season one.

Hit the jump to check out the poster and to see what Fuller has to say about its implications for the new season.  The 13-episode second season of Hannibal will kick off sometime early next year.

Speaking with EW, Fuller revealed that he designed this poster himself along with the show’s special effects team, and he briefly commented on the new season:

“After a horrifying descent into madness in season 1, this image ironically represents the perspective of a scrappier, clearer-minded Will Graham in season 2.  The scales have fallen from his eyes and he finally sees Hannibal Lecter for the monster he is.”

    This is one of the few shows that actually managed to scared me.. particularly

    Ellen Muth´s Georgia Madchen!..

      I agree. This is the one TV show where I was actually profoundly unnerved by the violence. Dexter never fazed me, nor do slasher movies, but something about the way Hannibal meditated on violence made it deeply unsettling.

    I hope more people discover this show in season 2 because they barely got renewed. Mads Mikkelsen is amazing as Hannibal.

    This show exudes atmosphere, each episode, beginning to end. Beautiful to watch. Nothing like it anywhere.

    Great show! I love David Slades work on this show as he am a huge fan of his. Even his Twilight film is by far the best in that craptactular series. I really wish we could have seen his version of Daredevil as he has an amazing eye (30 days of night was beautifully shot and one of the most terrifying vampire films to come out in the past 20 years). Looking forward to season 2!

    I have never been as disturbed and horrified yet at the same time awed by violence as I have with this show. This is one of the best shows on TV. Can’t wait for season 2.
