“Where shall we begin?” is a fitting start for Hannibal‘s new trailer for its upcoming third season. In it, Caroline Dhavernas says Season 3 is like a “blank slate,” and it certainly seems like there will be some big changes. Hugh Dancy also comments that the new season finds Hannibal heavily involved in his new life in Italy, where he and Bedelia are part of Florentine society (presumably using the identity of someone Hannibal has murdered).
Laurence Fishburne, Gillian Anderson, Mads Mikkelsen, and Richard Armitage all also comment on their thoughts regarding the new season, with a lot of time taken to discuss Bedelia’s future. Is she as dark as Hannibal? Is she now his accomplice?
The cast also bring up the continuation of the dance between Will and Hannibal, with Will deceiving Hannibal and leaving him so exposed has deeply affected the latter. Further, Armitage also talks about his character Francis Dolarhyde as The Red Dragon, although the cast promise that even fans who know the story arc will still have plenty of surprises coming their way.
The biggest thing from this trailer, though, are all of the clips we haven’t seen yet of the new season, particularly of Mason Verger, a quick glance at Dolarhyde, and so much more. Check out the video below, and starting preparing for Thursday, June 4th at 10 p.m., when Hannibal will return to NBC.
