TV show description:      
Set in Baltimore, this thriller series is based on the series of novels by Thomas Harris and brings psychiatrist-turned-serial-killer, Hannibal Lecter, to television for the first time.

Special Agent Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) is a gifted FBI criminal profiler who is on the hunt for a serial killer. Graham’s unique way of thinking gives him the ability to empathize with anyone — even psychopaths. He seems to know what makes them tick.

When the mind of the twisted killer that he’s pursuing is too complicated for Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Doctor Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen), one of the premier psychiatric minds in the country. Armed with the uncanny expertise of the brilliant doctor, Will and Hannibal (known as a serial killer only to the audience) form a brilliant partnership and it seems there’s no villain they can’t catch.

Others on Graham’s side are Special Agent Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne), Graham’s boss and the head of Behavioral Sciences at the FBI; Doctor Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas), a psychology professor and consultant profiler for the FBI; crime scene investigator Brian Zeller (Aaron Abrams); Beverly Katz (Hettienne Park), a crime scene investigator who specializes in fiber analysis; and Jimmy Price (Scott Thompson), a crime scene investigator who specializes in latent fingerprints;

Other characters include Fredricka “Freddie” Lounds (Lara Jean Chorostecki), a tabloid blogger; Jack Crawford’s wife, Bella (Gina Torres); Mrs. Komeda (Ellen Greene), a Boston novelist and friend of Doctor Lecter’s; Doctor Frederick Chilton (Raúl Esparza), the administrator of Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane; and Lecter’s psychotherapist, Doctor Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson).

    Thought of writing a long drawn out post about Hannible and how much I love the show. It’s intelligent and artistic. The acting is impeccable, but then I thought no, why waste my time. I will simply say. “You a#£hats

    This show is so unique compared to anything else on TV! The actors and writers for this show really know what makes great entertainment. It’s so sad that they cancelled this show and hopefully they will read all of these comments and someone wil pick up this program.

  3. Jennifer says

    I’m so sad this show is ending. Why? Too gory for television? Not all of us like fluff, pretty faces with boring personalities, or reality programming. It’s so well done and creative. *sigh*

    IIt is a shame that they cancelled Hannibal! We need to rally and have them change their mind or maybe HBO or Showtime will pick it up.

  5. Patricia says

    Why don’t earth would anyone think of canceling this show it has got to be the number one show and it has so far for to go so many different ways to play Hannibal it just disturbs me that you knew one would think of canceling it

  6. CCE says

    It doesn’t surprise me about NBC. As soon as they put a good show on there network they look for a reason to cancel a interesting and different show. Maybe they need to fire the top people over there because they never ever listen to the people who watch the shows only there board members. That’s why they will never be a number one network. Maybe SYFY channel will pick it up.

  7. Jilly says

    I also love this show. Even though the third season makes me wonder what the heck is going on. It’s a mystery. I am sad it’s over. I do not watch any regular TV because of commercials. However I make an exception for Hannibal.

    Oops sorry , just realised its NBC not TNT – maybe they’re interchangeable – neither seem to be listening to the people regarding ‘Hannibal’ or ‘Perception’.

  9. JA says

    I love this show. I think it is crazy for them to cancel it. I love Constantine as well. NBC is making a mistake canceling both of them. Who is making these decisions? They evidently didn’t ask ALL the people who were watching these shows.

      I couldn’t agree more. TNT need a kick up the pants for getting rid of of Hannibal. Yes, it’s dark, violent and disturbing but it also has brilliant characters, excellent actors and story lines that once they get their hooks into you, you’d be content to squirm until the end.
      The perfect prequel to the Hannibal Lector films that I enjoyed so much.
      I’ve never been a fan of horror but give a really good suspense-filled series, mix it with good story lines and add a splash of fantastic actors and acting and I’ll wriggle on that hook for a while – but only 3 series!!!!!!!!! Come on TNT!!!!!
      Only 3 seasons of ‘Perception” now just 3 of ‘Hannibal’ – come on TNT – do the right thing…….. Or aren’t you listening to you audiences at all????
