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 it! My daughter and I really like it and were hoping it would return in conjunction with “The Following”. Hope I didn’t jinx it since I liked Touch, The Firm and Missing as well :(

    KEEP this show on. This is by far the BEST show in years. Anything that can make me have BAD dreams every Thursday night, after watching the show, says something.
    The story is great the actors are great and I HAVE to know what happens next. The only thing I hate is having to wait until it comes on again, holding off and putting too much time between the end of one season and the start of another has already KILLED my interest in Revolution, PLEASE don’t do this to my “Hannibal.”

    Love, love, love Hannibal. Please don’t cancel a great series just because it isn’t “mainstream”. A lot of adults watch TV and we are the ones who spend the money. Don’t punish us because we are slightly tipped!

    This is an absolutely captivating series. It’s dark, terrifying, and exhilarating all at the same time. I love it and hope it comes back soon.

    Cannot wait to se what exotica Han will be serving up this season. Will he drive Will crazy, let him die of brain distemper or set him up as a serial killer instead. Meanwhile lets hope our favorite pych isn’t on the dinner menu.
