It’s been a long wait between the end of season two and the start of season three but, as usual, NBC’s best series, “Hannibal,” doesn’t disappoint in its return. We find Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) in Paris with…a wife? And that wife is Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson)? It will be an interesting journey that starts […]
In this interview with xfinityTV, showrunner Bryan Fuller talks about sexing up the show, the role reversal with Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) behind bars instead of Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen), how Will will go to trial for the murder of Abigail Hobbs, Season 2 guest stars and more.
“Hannibal” could be getting a wonderfully creepy relative next season. As has been rumored, “Hannibal” creator Bryan Fuller wants David Bowie to play the uncle of Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen). (Sounds kinda perfect, at least from a cheek bones perspective.) “We have reached out to David Bowie to see if he’s interested and available,” […]
By Matt Zoller Seitz Serial killers are a stupefyingly dull cliche, a means for storytellers to wallow in art-directed gore without dealing with the reality of crime and violence. Hannibal the cannibal, the psychiatrist and serial killer created by Thomas Harris, is as played-out today as Freddy Krueger was in the early nineties, thanks to […]
Last week, NBC pulled tonight’s episode of “Hannibal” due to its content in the wake of the Boston tragedy — but that doesn’t mean “Hannibal” fans won’t be able to see it. The network has repackaged the “cannibalized” episode, called “Ceuf,” and released it as a six-part web series — and XFINITY has all six […]

If you were prepared to dismiss NBC’s new incarnation of Hannibal Lecter as just another forgettable TV remake that we didn’t need, we urge you to reconsider: “Hannibal” is actually pretty terrific. Creepy and chilling, yes, but also riveting. I know what you’re thinking, but wait…. [xfinity-record-button id=”8513204174612854112″ program_type=”series”] Premiering Thursday at 10/9c on NBC, […]
Before Hannibal Lecter was recognized as being the serial killer we all know him to be — thank you Anthony Hopkins — he was a brilliant psychiatrist who consulted to the F.B.I. At least that is the story for the NBC series “Hannibal,” which is a prequel to the books written by Thomas Harris. [xfinity-record-button […]
It’s fair to say that Mads Mikkelsen dines out on his new starring role. He plays the title character in NBC’s new grisly gourmet drama, “Hannibal,” which focuses on Dr. Hannibal Lecter — scholar, connoisseur, cannibal — during an earlier, more nuanced time than was covered in the hit film “The Silence of the Lambs” […]
