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).

    Keep the show! KEEP IT!!! I look forward to watching it every week, I love both the writing and acting. To lose this show would be a tragedy. There’s so much trash TV and this is something that stands out from that and actually makes me want to watch it. THIS SHOW NEEDS TO BE RENEWED!

    This show is the best show currently on, network or cable. The acting and writing are both excellent, completely addictive. A show for thinking people, not just a typical crime drama.
    MUST keep this on!!

  5. Destiny says

    I hope they keep this show. It’s unnerving that there hasn’t been any updates! In my opinion, it’s the best out there right now.

    An excellent series; keep it by all means. The quality of the writing is superb!
    The acting is great!

    This program is mesmerizing. The writers, visuals and the characters are amazing. I strongly recommend this program for those who were, or are fans of Dexter or maybe even Criminal Minds. The characters of Hannibal and Will are so complex. The hero of the show is so damaged and tortured with his “gift”. Hannibal is everything this character should be; intelligent, articulate, charming, immaculately groomed and chilling. The creative teams who work their magic on the victims are creative geniouses. I find this all produces a sinister, spine tingling and addictive this show.
