Hannibal returns for a third season beginning on June 4.
First Look at Season 3 (Preview)
I’m patiently awaiting how the writers merge Hannibal’s capture in season three with the introduction of Francis Dolarhyde (aka the Red Dragon) played by the talented Richard Armitage (The Hobbit). It’s to be noted that Harris’ ‘Red Dragon’ is a story in which Jack (Laurence Fishburne) is very much alive. Several other key elements still have to occur if we are staying true to the published literary works – there has to be a wedding for Will, as he and his wife Molly will presumably need to move to the Florida Keys after the eventual capture of Hannibal Lector. Bryan Fuller (Hannibal Creator) mentioned that the show would continue to use its creative licenses to create a new path for the characters – a new journey in their existence.
The faithful fans pray that with the investigation of the Red Dragon there will be and eventual introduction of Clarice Starling. Also that the story of "The Silence of the Lambs" will be integrated somewhere, but I predict that the story arc of Starling is so dense that it won’t occur until season four. With Director David Slade at the helm, we can predictably look forward to a beautifully shot season, worthy of cinematic awards – though last season the heavy artistic nature often overcast the plot points.
However, I wouldn’t dare be rude and complain, I might get eaten.
