NBC’s critically acclaimed drama “Hannibal” returns at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) Friday, February 28 following “Grimm” after the previously-announced conclusion of the 10-episode run of “Dracula.”
Check out two brand new promotional banners that peak through the antlers, a motif for season 2.
In the premiere episode, 2.01, “Kaiseki,” “With Will still in custody for the murder of Abigail, Dr. Lecter steps in to help when bodies wash up on a riverbank. The big question is whether or not Dr. Bloom will be able to help Will regain his memories.”
From creator Bryan Fuller, “Hannibal” stars Mads Mikkelsen as brilliant psychiatrist Dr. Hannibal Lector, who is working with the FBI and gifted criminal profiler Will Graham, played by Hugh Dancy, to look into the mind of serial killers. Based on Thomas Harris’ best-selling novels, this series is the prequel to the story that began with the feature films “Red Dragon” and “Silence of the Lambs.”
The series also stars Laurence Fishburne as Jack Crawford, the head of the FBI’s Behavioral Science Unit. Caroline Dhavernas and Hettienne Park also co-star.
