It’s been eight months since “Hannibal” ended season two with a bloodbath of epic proportions — and by the time the cult thriller returns to NBC this summer for season three, Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and his discerning palate will have been off our screens for more than a year. Thankfully, the network has devised a way to ease our separation anxiety with an atmospheric new trailer — a tasty morsel that should go down like liver and fava beans with a nice Chianti.
The new footage sees Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) tracking his friend-turned-foe across the globe (most notably to Florence, Italy, where some exteriors have reportedly been shot) a year after Hannibal escaped with Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) in the final moments of last season.

Season 3 of NBC’s dark, brooding series, Hannibal, isn’t expected to hit our screens until sometime this spring, but now we know of at least one new face slated to appear. The Hobbit star Richard Armitage has clambered aboard the cannibal drama, taking on the role of Francis Dolarhyde. Fans of Thomas Harris’s original series of novels will recognize the name, and perhaps tremble with fear a smidgen as they recall his evil ways captured brilliantly in Red Dragon.
This will mark the third appearance for Dolarhyde outside of the novels. Dubbed The Tooth Fairy, he was originally played by Tom Noonan in Michael Mann’s 1986 adaptation of Red Dragon, Manhunter.
