‘Hannibal’ Season 3 Premiere Photos Give a Taste of ‘Antipasto’
Late last week Hannibal Season 3 served up an appetizer of its June 4 premiere by way of a tantalizing new synopsis, and before main course arrives, NBC has yet another offering. See who’s coming to dinner in the first official photos from Hannibal Season 3 premiere “Antipasto”!
Following the previous key art, the latest Hannibal Season 3 photos actually take us inside the June 4 premiere, following Hannibal and Bedelia’s new life on the lam in Italy. The pair seem to be making plenty of new friends (and who wouldn’t want to be Bedelia’s friend, in that hat?), but which of the new faces will end up on the table themselves?
Also of note from Hannibal Season 3 is another Korean promo (far less insane than the prior), which teases our first look at the new Mason Verger, among other things.
So reads NBC’s “Antipasto” synopsis:
HANNIBAL IS ON THE RUN - EDDIE IZZARD AND ZACHARY QUINTO GUEST STAR – Having successfully escaped FBI capture, Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) is moving through the European landscape, with Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) in tow.But Dr. Lecter’s old habits and opulent tastes are still on display as he settles into a new identity and life in Florence, Italy, working at the Palazzo Capponi museum. Glimpses into the past help inform his relationship with Bedelia, a pairing not clearly defined as friend or foe.
Most recently adding 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. 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.
The new season will pick up 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 Chiyo, attendant to Hannibal’s “aunt” Lady Murasaki.
Hannibal Season 3 will premiere on June 4, while we’ve included the full premiere photo set above.
