I’ve stayed quiet about Hannibal since the Red Dragon arc began — this half of the season has been slowly simmering and less surreally theatric than the first half. It’s not that it hasn’t been interesting, but there’s been less meat on its bones to chew over. Not so with “…And the Beast From the Sea,” in which Hannibal Lecter essentially proves why you should never break up with him.

The recent casting of Hannibal star Hugh Dancy in a new Hulu drama put yet another nail in the coffin of Bryan Fuller’s magnum opus, though we still have at least two more installments before the Red Dragon arc comes to an end. See for yourself, as Dr. Lecter finally get his iconic mask in the first photos of August 22 (series?) finale “The Wrath of the Lamb!”
Granted, we’ve known for some time that Hannibal stars Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen were released from their contracts, it’s a different kind of gut stab to see them actually line up new gigs. Dancy at least, is off to a fine start, joining Breaking Bad alum Aaron Paul in Jason Katims’ new Hulu faith drama The Way.
At the midseason mark, Hannibal has a moment of readjustment, switching gears almost effortlessly to transition into the future — three years down the line, and Will Graham is experiencing his Godfather moment. Just when he thought he was out, Jack Crawford pulls him back in to investigate the Tooth Fairy, a name our new killer despises, as “The Great Red Dragon” is more to his demented liking.
The sun seems to have set on NBC’s Hannibal beyond a third season, with Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy released from their contracts, and creator Bryan Fuller suggesting a feature followup may prove more likely. Still, with talk of Thomas Harris’ Silence of the Lambs canon off-limits, could Fuller’s fourth season plans point toward Clarice Starling after all? The Season 3 finale title might …
In some ways, Hannibal almost reads like a fan fiction version of the Hannibal and Will Graham story — without forcing its two leads into a sexual relationship, that is. The love between Hannibal and Will is so twisted, so deep, and so accurately explores relationship dynamics that it’s almost more chilling than watching an eel slide down Mason Verger’s throat, or the awful realization that there’s a human baby inside of that pig.
NBC may have dumped the remainder of Hannibal Season 3 on Saturdays, but Dr. Lecter and co. will not go quietly, moving into full Red Dragon territory for the final six episodes of the season. Our first spoilery photos have arrived, as Hannibal finally faces life behind glass, while Francis Dolarhyde begins his reign of Tooth Fairy terror.
Just when you thought Hannibal hadn't gotten enough of a raw cut deal, NBC thought it best to kick Bryan Fuller's dark and delirious vision down the week. The remaining Hannibal Season 3 episodes will move to Saturday nights from their Thursday perch, alongside still-unaired episodes of David Duchovny's Aquarius.
Following the revealing (really, really revealing for some) panel at Comic-Con, NBC has released that new trailer for Season 3 of Hannibal, giving us a long, suitably creepy look ahead at the remaining episodes and teasing the highly-anticipated Red Dragon arc. But the Red Dragon isn’t the only surprise the new trailer offers: we’re also jumping ahead three years in time.
