The end of next month sees the return of the flesh hungry genius ‘Hannibal’ Lecter in the excellent NBC drama series. The first official trailer for the new season has arrived thanks to the studio and features Lecter and FBI profiler Will Graham and their typical back and forth mind games. However, the trailer below can only be viewed if you’re reading this from the good ole’ US of A. The new season stars Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen (‘Casino Royale’), Laurence Fishburne (‘The Matrix’), Scott Thompson, Aaron Abrams, Hettienne Park, Caroline Dhavernas, Eddie Izzard (‘The Munsters’), Gillian Anderson (‘The X-Files’) and Katharine Isabelle (‘Ginger Snaps’, ‘American Mary’).
“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…”
‘Hannibal’ returns to screens on NBC, Friday 28 Februrary at 10:00pm ET/PT.
