NBC released the official synopsis and promotional photo for the season three premiere of the psychological thriller, Hannibal 3×01 titled, “Antipasto.” The episode is set to air Thursday, June 4th. Take a look at the description for the episode and a look at Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) in the new season below.
The dark and haunting series “Hannibal” returns for a third season, revealing the fates of characters hanging in the balance, and their continuing psychological cat-and-mouse games.
After the shocking events of the season finale, Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen, “Casino Royale”) is on the run in Europe — accompanied by his psychiatrist Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson, “The X-Files”) — sporting a new identity, but servicing the same insatiable appetite. As the lives of Will (Hugh Dancy), Jack (Laurence Fishburne, “The Matrix,” “CSI”) and Alana (Caroline Dhavernas, “Wonderfalls,” “The Pacific”) converge toward Hannibal again, their deadly dance turns in startling and unexpected ways, and nothing will ever be the same again.
