TVGuide has shared their latest “Post Mortem with Scott Thompson,” a web series hosted by the actor who plays Hannibal’s lab geek Jimmy, in which show creator Bryan Fuller explains how he was lured to the project… it wasn’t with fava beans and a nice chianti.
“I was just intrigued with a gentleman cannibal,” Fuller says. “There was so much fun to what he does as somebody who eats the rude — there was inherent comedy to be had. I see this as a very, very, very dark comedy.“
He also doesn’t think Hannibal plays by the same rules as other series in the genre, which is interesting. “The serial killers are fantastical; it’s a heightened reality,” he says. “The reality of it is covered so well on other crime procedural shows where women are frequently raped and murdered. That’s something I don’t want to do on this show. I find it difficult to derive any entertainment from rape.”
As for what’s still to come in the second season? Fuller promises that Will (Hugh Dancy) will go to extreme (and dangerous) lengths in order to bring Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) to justice. “It’s going to be a bloodbath,” Fuller says of the finale. “It ends poorly for most.“
