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).

    Hannibal is one of the best TV shows ever made. it is a thriller that makes you think . The actors make you feel like you’re part of the show. I just pray that they do not cancel the show because I look forward to seeing it every week!!!!

  2. David Lenchner says

    I read an interview with the creator of Hannibal where he said that he had already planned out a six season arc for the show and story lines and episodes already planned. They need to renew this series so we can see Bryan Fuller’s creative mind go where no man has gone before. Oops I think that is a different series. No new shows until the summer of 2015? That seems too long a break since last season. This is one of my favorite shows and one of the only shows that actually scares me at times and makes my stomach do cartwheels. We need more Hannibal.

  3. Linda Ratzloff says

    I have been waiting for what seems like forever for Hannibal to return. If it truly has been renewed, when can we see the new episodes?

  4. Lisa Chioda says

    Is Hannibal really returning? I love this show, and I am so happy is is coming back. Have been wondering if it was renewed,,,,YES YES YES!

    Dont cancel the show. There are to many unanswered questions left from the season finale. I would like to know who lived and died and what happens to Hannibal. So please don’t cancel.

  6. Sissy Rutkowski says

    Cannot believe there has not be a new episode yet, this is definitely one of the most intelligent, cliff-hanging shows airing today. The cinematography is gripping and compelling. The acting is superb, and the story line is addictive. Please continue the show for a least one more season so we can have closure if it is the decision to cancel.

  7. Jo Proctor says

    To cancel this show would be a big
    mistake. There is no other show like
    it. The show is amazing with its shock
    & awe effects. You never know what to
    expect. The characters are amazing. We
    are going through Hannibal withdrawals.
    Please come back soon.
