Will Graham is a special consultant with the FBI. He has a special gift whereby he can empathize with any individual and put himself in their shoes. This means he gets to help solve vicious murders, especially those involving serial killers, as he can profile the murderer - their method, motives and personality profile. For a particular case, the FBI also seek the help of Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a highly-respected psychiatrist. Will and Hannibal hit it off, and Will becomes a patient of Hannibal. Little does he know or suspect that Hannibal might be the most wanted serial killer in the US.

This series borrows character and stories quite liberally from Thomas Harris
' novels Red Dragon, Hannibal and Hannibal rising, but surprisingly, not from The Silence of the Lambs, even though it was from that film that most people became familiar with Hannibal Lecter and Clarice Starling. This is because that film was the only one in the series not produced by Dino De Laurentiis
, and thus the producers of this series do not have the rights to it. Whether or not they have, or intend to use, the rights to Clarice Starling is unknown at this point. See more
Despite being head of the behavioral sciences unit within the FBI, Jack Crawford displays gaps in expertise that should be a given. For instance, when Will Graham fails the clock test, he asks whether this is something that Will could fake. See more

US TV network versions aired censored versions of some episodes (removing, for example, rear nudity, paintings showing nude figures and some scenes of violence) with a TV-14 rating. These cut versions were released on Blu-ray in the UK, many of which received the more appropriate 18 rating from the BBFC. However, the American Blu-ray editions of the affected episodes are unrated and billed as Producer's Cuts, which restore the previously censored footage. See more
