If you haven’t watch the best show on network television, NBC’s Hannibal, you should stop reading.  Also, what the hell is wrong with you?

Here are some key points, as reported by The Av Club.

- The season will take place a year after the incidents of season two.

Comic-Con: Raul Esparza Explains His Return to Hannibal Season 3

25 July 2014 4:50 PM, PDT | | See recent shocktillyoudrop news »

Fans of Hannibal cheered yesterday afternoon when they learned Raul Esparza was returning to the series in season 3. The actor, who plays Dr. Chilton, was... Spoiler Alert ...shot in the face in season two. Chilton - who was under suspicion for murder at the time he was shot - was never to be seen again on the show leading many fans to believe he was dead. But showrunner Bryan Fuller says that is not the case and that Chilton will, in fact, have a pretty significant part in season 3.

25 July 2014 2:13 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

Fans of NBC’s Hannibal--or fannibals, as they call themselves--came out in force at Comic-Con to support the dark, artsy drama, wearing flower crowns, black stag costumes and masks of the characters’ faces. Creator Bryan Fuller rewarded them with some juicy morsels about what (or who) his team of writers are cooking up for Season 3, including some new characters directly from the Thomas Harris novels on which the series is based. Moderated by British TV host Jonathan Ross, the panel kicked off with a montage of footage from the past season, including scenes the gut-wrenching finale, which left the fates of many of the characters up in the air. Cast members Aaron Abrams (Brian Zeller), Scott Thompson (Jimmy Price) and Caroline Dhavernas (Alana Bloom) joined Fuller, director David Slade and executive producers Steven Lightfoot and Martha De Laurentiis on stage. We’ll serve up all the highlights from the panel after the jump. »

Lots Of "Hannibal" Season 3 Spoiler Details

25 July 2014 11:17 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

While some filmmakers and show runners are all about insane levels of secrecy regarding their work, "Hannibal" producer Bryan Fuller has no such fears and is happy to talk openly about events in the upcoming third season of the acclaimed NBC series.

Spoilers Ahead

The show's panel yesterday at the San Diego Comic Con did just that with the presence of an actor who is returning that many thought was left for dead last season - Dr. Fredrick Chilton (played by Raul Esparza). Despite being shot in the face, it seems Chilton is still alive and will play a huge part of season three. Esparza says no matter what kind of awful mishaps happen to the twisted psychiatrist, Fuller always reassures him that he’ll survive.

Fuller confirms that the introduction of various characters from Harris’ books will come thick and fast next year. The second episode sees the introduction »

Bryan Fuller may not be quite at George R.R. Martin‘s level when it comes to killing off beloved characters, but Hannibal is still a show about a serial killer. It should come as no surprise that from time to time, characters get shot in the face, chopped into pieces, or braised in a nice wine […]

Hannibal: what we learned about season three at Comic-Con

25 July 2014 7:59 AM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

New characters and a new direction are promised in San Diego but what we really want to see is showrunner Bryan Fuller's fantasy musical episode

Spoiler Alert: this contains discussion of Hannibal, season two. Do not read if you have not seen the entire season.

Following its renewal just prior to the epic finale of season two, the cast and crew of Hannibal held court at Comic-Con on Thursday. The panel, hosted by Jonathan Ross, was informal, and spilled a surprising amount of beans on season three. While Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy and Laurence Fishburne were not in attendance (Mikkelsen and Dancy sent video messages), showrunner Bryan Fuller was joined by a panel including Caroline Dhavernas, Scott Thompson, Aaron Abrams and Raúl Esparza, and wasn't coy in dropping some fairly major hints about where the show is going. Here's what he revealed.

25 July 2014 6:43 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Bryan Fuller says he learned a lesson from the cancellations of his beloved shows Wonderfalls and Pushing Daisies: Treat every season finale like it’s a series finale.

Which explains exactly why Hannibal ended its sophomore run in spectacularly bloody fashion.

Hannibal season 3 casting news

25 July 2014 1:50 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

A deal is being put together to make Gillian Anderson's character a Hannibal season 3 regular...


The contracts haven't yet been signed, but the plan is for Gillian Anderson's Dr Bedelia Du Maurier to move from recurring character to series regular in the third season of Hannibal, news that should be warmly welcomed by fans of the show.  

"We are right now negotiating her contract as a series regular - it's not closed yet" Bryan Fuller told the assembled Sdcc crowd during NBC's Hannibal panel.

Fuller went on to give some details about the season three premiere, describing it as "if it were a new pilot for a series starring Gillian Anderson and Mads Mikkelsen [...] These characters are out in the world, living under aliases," he explained. "It's The Talented Mr Lecter!".

Comic-Con Day 1: Fans Show Love for “Penny Dreadful” & Hannibal

25 July 2014 1:14 AM, PDT | IMDb Blog - All the Latest | See recent IMDb Blog - All the Latest news »

Here’s how we know NBC’s “Hannibal” is doing something right. During the most gruesome parts in the highlight reel shown in Ballroom 20 at Comic-Con, people emitted “oohs” and “aahs”. Some even whooped with delight. Psychopaths? Hardly.  When the time came for people to ask questions of executive producer Bryan Fuller and members of cast, the tenor of the conversation was quite cerebral. If Dr. Lecter were on the hunt for rude people to eat on Thursday afternoon, he would not have found them in that room.

A huge part of Comic-Con’s thrill is to sit among scores of fans that think deeply about challenging shows like this and Showtime’s “Penny Dreadful,” which paneled directly after “Hannibal”. Both fit in the horror genre although surprisingly, the ballroom seemed a bit emptier during “Penny.” More’s the pity for those who missed that conversation. As »

Hannibal season 3 details from Sdcc

25 July 2014 12:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

NBC’s Hannibal panel at San Diego Comic-Con was a big hit, and provided fans with a lot of details about the upcoming third season. After last season’s finale, which left many of the show’s characters either dead or dying, fans have been chomping at the bit for details about where the show will go from here, who will return, and what showrunner Bryan Fuller will pull from the source material.

Thanks to the various live-bloggers and Twitter users present at the panel, we have a lot of new information to share with you:

First and foremost, the show will pick up a full year from where season 2 left off. Fuller wants to leave details about the finale aftermath ambiguous, meaning the premiere will focus solely on Madds Mikkelsen’s Hannibal and Gillian Anderson’s Dr. Du Maurier.

The fourth episode of the new season will focus on »

Hannibal Producers on Clarice Starling’s Arrival and Who Survived the Massacre

24 July 2014 10:42 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

This post contains spoilers for Hannibal season three. Don't read any further unless you're caught up.At tonight's Comic-Con panel, the Hannibal producers revealed a number of tasty tidbits about the upcoming third season, which they explained will pick up a year after the massacre that closed out season two. “We want to be very vague with who survived that bloody, bloody night, and because we wanted to land the characters in a place where they were active,” said executive producer Bryan Fuller, explaining that the fourth episode will fill in the gaps between the two seasons. “It was very intentional that we wanted to take a space, land Hannibal and Bedelia, because the first episode is very much a pilot for a new series starring Gillian Anderson and Mads Mikkelsen. It was important for us to have a passage of time so we could come into their story at »

#SDCC14: Hannibal Panel Talks Season 3; Season 2 Home Video Release Details

24 July 2014 6:16 PM, PDT | | See recent Dread Central news »

So this was a pretty exciting, albeit spoiler-y, panel. If you're one to worry about that, here's your warning. Otherwise showrunner Bryan Fuller had much to tease with respect to "Hannibal" Season 3.

Thomas Harris purists such as myself were a little dismayed this past season when it looked like one of our favorite characters, Dr. Frederick Chilton (Raúl Esparza) had been prematurely snuffed out. Turns out that we needn't have worried, since Esparaza made a surprise appearance on this year's Sdcc "Hannibal" panel to confirm his return.

"By the end of next season, I expect to have an eyepatch, a hump, and a parrot," he said. “I can’t believe how much people fell in love with Chilton this season...I love playing the part because he’s a total douchebag.”

On the topic of other returning characters, Fuller confirmed that we'd see Eddie Izzard's Abel Gideon once more, »

Stars Mads Mikkelsen and Hugh Dancy were absent from the panel due to work commitments, but Mikkelsen sent his apologies via video from Denmark, while Dancy recorded a message from Australia, both thanking all the “Fannibals” for their support of the critically-acclaimed drama.

The biggest reveal from the panel? Raul Esparza will be “a huge part of season three” despite his character, Dr. Chilton, being shot in the face in season three.
