Our favorite cannibal is back and there’s a new promo out on the Internet for Bryan Fuller‘s (Pushing Daisies, Dead Like Me) new psychological thriller Hannibal. The television series focuses on the fava bean fanatic Hannibal, played by Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale, Clash of the Titans), as he works with FBI agent Wil Graham played by Hugh Dancy (Black Hawk Down, King Arthur) to catch notorious serial killers, all the while continuing his own personal killing smorgasbord.
Laurence Fishburne pops in as Graham’s boss Jack Crawford, and a special treat for X-Files fans, Gillian Anderson plays Hannibal Lecter’s psychiatrist. I can’t wait to see how those scenes play out.
Written by Fuller and directed by David Slade, at least the pilot so far, NBC has ordered 13 episodes for the first season. Keep your eyes out for more to come before the series premiere on April 4th, 2013.
Check out this promo trailer, not a real trailer, just a promo, it says so right there in the title.
