For those who have enjoyed the quality of NBC’s new ‘Hannibal’ series will be pleased as punch to hear that the network have ordered a second season full of 13 brand new episodes. NBC president Jennifer Salke made the announcement stating “We’re so proud of Bryan’s (Fuller) vision for a show that is richly textured, psychologically complex, and very compelling. There are many great stories still to be told.” The show stars Brit star Hugh Dancy as Will Graham and Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen as everyboy’s favourite flesh eater ‘Hannibal’. Laurence Fishburne (‘The Matrix’), Scott Thompson, Aaron Abrams, Hettienne Park and Caroline Dhavernas also star.
“Will Graham is a gifted criminal profiler who is on the hunt for a serial killer with the FBI. Graham’s unique way of thinking gives him the astonishing ability to empathize with anyone – even psychopaths. He seems to know what makes them tick. But when the mind of the twisted killer he’s pursuing is too complicated for even Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Dr. Lecter, one of the premier psychiatric minds in the country. Armed with the uncanny expertise of the brilliant doctor, Will and Hannibal (known as a serial killer only to the audience) form a brilliant partnership, and it seems there’s no villain they can’t catch. If Will only knew…”
