Okay, not that 'Hannibal.' Nonetheless, given all the success History Channel has achieved with its scripted series, including 'Vikings,' 'Hatfields & McCoys' and 'The Bible,' the channel has next set its sights on famous African general Hannibal Barca for a miniseries event produced by Hollywood icon Halle Berry.
Things have been curiously quiet on the front for NBC's second season of 'Hannibal' -- which is currently slated for a likely 2014 launch -- apart from a few minor castings. At the very least, we know now that season 2 won't be afraid to reheat a few leftovers, as comedian Eddie Izzard will return to reprise his role as the villainous Dr. Abel Gideon.
Lucky as we were to get a second season of NBC's 'Hannibal' for its moderate ratings, doubts began to creep early on as opposing projects seemed to pull away more prominent guest stars like Gillian Anderson of 'The X-Files' and Raul Esparza of 'Law & Order.' While we wait for 'Hannibal' season 2's likely 2014 debut, however, it seems both stars will return in at least some capacity.
Yesterday saw our first creepy peek at 'Hannibal' season 2 in the form of an elegant (if terrifying) Wendigo poster, but why not go a bit less stylized? The first official still from season 2 of NBC's darkly delicious prequel drama has made its way online, but what new questions flare up from 'Hannibal''s continued FBI presence?
Ghastly and criminal thought it seems that 'Hannibal' won't be able to offer its second course by Halloween, that hasn't stopped NBC's darkly delicious Bryan Fuller drama from conjuring a frightful sight for season 2. The first official teaser poster for the good Dr. Lecter's 2014 return has hit the web, with imagery as sure to haunt your dreams as it gives you pause to set the table.
'Hannibal's midseason status and 13-episode run can mean we'll go months at a time without any fresh appetizers of the season to come. We've already learned of one major guest star for the upcoming second season, but what better way to prep for the dour darkness of 'Hannibal' season 2 than a gag reel cleansing the palate of the deliciously dark first course?
We’ve all heard the casual moans of fan communities that Hollywood never comes up with anything original anymore, settling into the familiar patterns of sequels, remakes, and adaptations of familiar properties to cash in on brand recognition. And while remakes have become subtly accepted as a chance for a new take on dormant properties, the recent ‘RoboCop’ trailer reminded us just how much passions can strain in the dissection of beloved classics.
It's been a good long while since 'Hannibal' served up any fresh appetizers of its second season, though its seems our preparation for the 2014 course has at long last begun. Among the many delectable courses in casting we expect for the year, 'Sex and the City' star Cynthia Nixon has joined 'Hannibal' season 2 in an important new role, but as whom, you ask?
The first 'Hannibal' season finale "Savoureux" certainly made it appear as if we'd be spending quite a bit of time in the Baltimore State Hospital next season, but it seems one of the staff might enjoy a temporary sabbatical. Actor Raul Esparza has officially been upgraded to series regular from his recurring role on 'Law & Order: SVU' as ADA Rafael Barba, so might we be seeing less of Dr. Frederick Chilton?
As we draw closer to Comic-Con 2013, NBC has become the latest network to unveil its full slate of TV panels for the international pop-culture event in San Diego. Among the known presences of 'Hannibal' and 'Revolution,' most exciting is the glorious return of 'Community,' led by its returning creator Dan Harmon!
