'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.

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.

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.

Back before NBC officially decided to renew the darkly delicious 'Hannibal' for season 2, series creator Bryan Fuller expressed a desire to cast glam rock legend David Bowie as Hannibal's oft-mentioned uncle, among other envisioned castings. Now, Fuller has reportedly extended an official offer to Bowie, and has another 'Pushing Daisies' alum in mind for the literary role of Barney!

Last week’s ‘Hannibal’ episode “Relevés” saw the death of Georgia Madchen (Ellen Muth) leading Will to realize the truth about the copycat killer, while Jack began to have suspicions and Hannibal made a startling revelation to Abigail Hobbs (Kacey Rohl), so how does the thirteenth and final course of ‘Hannibal’ season 1 taste?

Yesterday brought the surprising news of Bryan Fuller's entire bible for a projected seven seasons of 'Hannibal,' but we'll still have to get through tonight's first season finale event! The final installment, "Savoureux," will see Will Graham accused of a grisly crime he didn't commit, but what does the latest clip reveal? Might Will be guilty after all?
Whatever NBC's 'Hannibal' has lacked in ratings across the first season, the Bryan Fuller-helmed drama has more than made up for it in an engrossing narrative with absurdly memorable death tableauxs.
