Back in July, Season One of NBC’s incredible show “Hannibal” left us all hanging on the proverbial cliff, wondering what the fate of FBI investigator Will Graham, who found himself accused of murder, would be.
Though we’ll of course have to wait until the show returns to find out, E! provided some details today which give us a little insight into what will be going down come Season Two.
The site reports that “Will is in deep you-know-what,” and that he could be facing the death penalty. His only saving grace will perhaps be a lawyer named Leonard Braver, who takes on Will’s difficult and extremely high profile case.
We’re pulling for ya, Will!
“Hannibal” was developed for television by Bryan Fuller, who also serves as writer and executive producer. In addition to Fuller, Martha De Laurentiis, Jesse Alexander, Chris Brancato, Sara Colleton, Katie O’Connell, Elisa Roth, Sidonie Dumas, and Christophe Riandee also serve as executive producers. The series is produced by Gaumont International Television, Dino De Laurentiis Company, and Living Dead Guy Productions and co-commissioned internationally by Sony Pictures Television Networks.
The new season will begin no earlier than midseason.
From Bryan Fuller, the co-creator of TV’s “Wonderfalls” and “Pushing Daisies,” and David Slade, the director of Hard Candy and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, and based on the novels of Thomas Harris, “Hannibal: Season One” delves into the complex mind of iconic villain Hannibal Lecter.
Starring a critically acclaimed cast including Emmy® Award nominee Hugh Dancy (Elizabeth I, Showtime’s “The Big C”), Academy® Award nominee Laurence Fishburne (What’s Love Got to Do with It, Lead Actor, 1993; The Matrix), and Palme d’Or winner Mads Mikkelsen (Best Actor, The Hunt; Casino Royale), the “deliciously disturbing” (Chicago Sun Times) series captured TV audiences, premiering to over 4.3 million viewers.
FBI Agent Will Graham (Dancy) hunts the most notorious serial killers. Graham is both gifted and cursed with an extraordinary ability: He can think like his prey, seeing what they see and feeling what they feel. What he doesn’t know is that his new partner is the most notorious serial killer of all. While pursuing an especially troubling, cannibalistic murderer, Special Agent Jack Crawford (Fishburne) teams Graham with a highly respected psychiatrist – a man with a taste for the criminally minded: Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mikkelsen). Dr. Lecter tests Graham every step of the way, toying with him and playing a game all his own, while they work to unravel the mystery and catch the killer. Like only Lecter can, he twists Graham’s mind, daring him to question everything he knows about others…and himself.
The complete first season contains all 13 episodes, including one episode never before aired on TV, plus audio commentaries on select episodes, deleted scenes, a gag reel, storyboards, and multiple featurettes that cut deep into the creation of the series. The “Hannibal: Season One” Blu-ray Disc and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $39.97 and $39.98, respectively.
