Bryan Fuller broke the news on his Instagram earlier this week, and yesterday, Nerdist announced a long-awaited Hannibal reunion is in the works, set to air at 10 am PT, July 11th on Nerdist’s YouTube Channel and will simultaneously stream on the Geek & Sundry YouTube Channel and Geek & Sundry’s Twitch Channel, where fans can join the live chat with cast and crew from the show. The event kicks off Nerdist’s planned virtual panel series Nerdist House 2020. Expect more details and exciting announcements on that shortly.
The virtual panel was moderated by Nerdist’s Rosie Knight, and as a screen shot from the taping has already leaked, it will come as no surprise to fans that the panel includes series creator Bryan Fuller, Made Mikkelsen (Hannibal Lecter), Hugh Dancy (Will Graham), Gillian Anderson (Bedelia Du Maurier), Caroline Dhavernas (Alana Bloom), Katie Isabelle (Margot Verger), Raúl Esparza (Frederick Chilton), Hettiene Park (Beverly Katz), Kacey Rohl (Abigail Hobbs), Scott Thompson (Jimmy Price), Aaron Abrams (Brian Zeller), executive producer Martha De Laurentiis, co-producer Loretta Ramos, director/executive producer David Slade, and food consultant Janice Poon. Here’s a sneak peek:
Fans who submitted questions using the hashtag #AskHannibal may hear their questions asked and answered. Once the panel airs, it will be available as VOD on all three channels, but fans who want to chat with each other and with the Hannibal cast and crew will want to tune in on July 11 at 10 am PT. It’s a perfect prelude to a Hannibal rewatch, now that the series is on Netflix.
