A few days ago we caught an early look at the February 27 premiere of 'Hannibal' season 2, but given all the darkly delicious drama, we couldn't help indulging another taste, or four. Check out a hearty helping of new clips from this Friday's 'Hannibal' season 2 premiere "Kaiseki," including one that threatens to turn the entire series on its head!
Entertainment Weekly snagged the most tantalizing of the new clips, a full fight sequence between Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) and Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), though we'll learn that the bloody brawl won't take place until about 12 weeks after the February 27 premiere. Elsewhere, the three other clips from the premiere show Hannibal visiting poor Will (Hugh Dancy) behind bars, along with a visit from Alana, and Hannibal settling into Will's old position as the FBI's criminal profiler.
Additionally, series creator Bryan Fuller has confirmed Raul Esparza’s return to ‘Hannibal’ season 2 as Dr. Frederick Chilton, while ‘X-Files‘ vet Gillian Anderson will reprise her role as Hannibal’s therapist Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier, as will Eddie Izzard as Dr. Abel Gideon, along with confirmed season 2 roles for ‘Sex and the City’ vet Cynthia Nixon and ‘Homeland‘ player Martin Donovan.
Also on deck for the season are ‘Justified‘ Emmy-winner Jeremy Davies portraying an animal rescue worker accused of murder, with ‘Arrested Development‘ star Chris Diamantopoulos as his social-worker. But perhaps most excitingly of all however, ‘Boardwalk Empire‘ alum Michael Pitt will play iconic literary Hannibal villain Mason Verger, with ‘Being Human‘ star Katharine Isabelle as his tortured sister Margot.
We're just days away from the premiere, so check out all the latest clips above and below, and tell us in the comments what you want to see from 'Hannibal' season 2! Will the good doctor end up in his proper place behind bars at the end of the season?
