New ‘Hannibal’ Season 3 Motion Poster, or Why You’re Not Sleeping Tonight
June is fast approaching, and we haven’t checked in with the good Dr. Lecter after the first Hannibal Season 3 trailer. Nevertheless, our beloved cannibal antihero is always watching (and blinking) at us, evidenced by an unnerving new motion poster for the third course of NBC’s darkly delicious horror.
As debuted on Mashable, the first glance at Hannibal Season 3's new poster might look like an ordinary photo of a stylish, leather-clad Mads Mikkelsen eying the camera like a meal. Keep staring, however, and the good doctor will star blinking at you, and may in fact be behind you right now. Savor the hunt, indeed.
Most recently adding Zachary Quinto and True Detective‘s Glenn Fleshler as Cordell, personal physician to Mason Verger (Joe Anderson, replacing Michael Pitt), we also know of Hannibal Season 3 that Gillian Anderson has been upgraded to series regular, following Season 2 finale bloodbath “Mizumono.” The Hobbit star Richard Armitage, True Blood vet Rutina Wesley and Nina Arianda will play Red Dragon characters Francis Dolarhyde, Reba McClane and Molly, respectively, while Raul Esparza will return to the role of Dr. Frederick Chilton, and Eddie Izzard could return to the role of the late Dr. Abel Gideon as well.
The new season will pick up sometime later with Hannibal and Bedelia’s new life on the lam, also incorporating such other literary Thomas Harris figures as Hannibal novel character Inspector Rinaldo Pazzi. Additionally, Batman vs. Superman and The Wolverine star Tao Okamoto has been confirmed to play the role of Hannibal’s “aunt” Lady Murasaki (or her attendant “Chiyo,” it’s a bit confusing).
We’ve included the Hannibal Season 3 trailer again above, so sleep in fear tonight, and prepare your taste buds for the good doctor’s June 4 return!
