The second season of “Hannibal” is drawing just a little bit closer, but February 28th still seems like such a long wait. Thankfully, we’re finally getting our first real taste of the second season with a brand new trailer.
I feel like I should offer some sort of warning about this trailer. It’s a short teaser, but it seems to give away some major twists in the upcoming season. They’re twists that most fans would expect, but if you want to remain in the dark about the way things will unfold this season, it might be best to avoid the trailer altogether. It’s such a good trailer though.
If you’re new to the series here’s a brief synopsis of season one to get you started:
Will Graham is a gifted criminal profiler who is on the hunt for a serial killer with the FBI. Graham’s unique way of thinking gives him the astonishing ability to empathize with anyone – even psychopaths. He seems to know what makes them tick. But when the mind of the twisted killer he’s pursuing is too complicated for even Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Dr. Lecter, 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. If Will only knew…
Starring Hugh Dancy as Will Graham and Mads Mikkelsen as Hannibal Lecter, “Hannibal” will breathe new life into a deadly classic. Laurence Fishburne and Caroline Dhavernas co-star.
The new season of “Hannibal” returns this February 28th on NBC.
