The twistedly haunting, creepy and unexpected NBC series Hannibal is one of the best shows currently on television. With shocking revelations, psychological cat-and-mouse games, and intricately detailed murders, it certainly stays with you, long after it airs. And after the wild Season 2 finale that left everyone in a state of peril, the anticipation for Season 3 and answers for where it will all go next is growing, as fannibals wait for the show’s return.
As part of PaleyFest NY, which is considered the ultimate TV fan festival, co-stars Hugh Dancy (“Will Graham”), Mads Mikkelsen (“Dr. Hannibal Lecter”) and Laurence Fishburne (“Jack Crawford”), along with show creator Bryan Fuller, talked about their first encounter with the Hannibal Lecter mythos, how the undercurrent of love between Hannibal and Will shapes their understanding of their characters, that Season 3 will show how much everyone has been changed by the events of the finale, what Hannibal will be wearing now, learning more about the relationship between Hannibal and Bedelia (Gillian Anderson), casting Tao Okamoto as Lady Murasaki’s attendant Chiyo, getting back into the lab in the second half of the season, the possibility of the appearance of Clarice Starling, and why the original seven-season plan is now a six-season plan. Check out what they had to say after the jump.
