NBC has brought online the trailer for the third season of “Hannibal,” which will premiere on the network this summer. Executive producer and writer Bryan Fuller previously told us that the third season will incorporate material from Thomas Harris’ novel “Hannibal” into the first part.
“We kind of mix it up in a way that, since we are telling a fugitive story now, after ‘Red Dragon,’ because in the novel, once Hannibal guts Graham, he’s immediately apprehended. In our timeline, he gets away so we are pulling that story up. Then telling a different story when we get to that storyline after ‘Silence of the Lambs,'” he said.
“Hannibal” stars Hugh Dancy as expert criminal profiler Will Graham, who has a unique ability to peer into the mind of serial killers. Mads Mikkelsen stars as Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a psychiatrist who is helping with the cases and is also a serial killer himself.
In addition to Fuller, Martha De Laurentiis, Jesse Alexander, Chris Brancato, Sara Colleton, Katie O’Connell, Elisa Roth, Sidonie Dumas and Christophe Riandee also serve as executive producers. The series is produced by Gaumont International Television, Dino De Laurentiis Company and Living Dead Guy Productions, and co-commissioned internationally by Sony Pictures Television Networks.
