Hannibal is a show you absolutely should be watching, and since it’s back for its third season on June 4, you’ve got just enough time to catch up on creator Bryan Fuller’s stunning, inventive new take on the saga of Hannibal Lecter.
As the trailer above shows, season 3 is a bit of a reinvention for the series, because it divides the cast for the first time. Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) is on the run in Europe, while Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) are back in the States on the hunt for a new killer that fans of the Lecter character know very well: Francis Dolarhyde, the “Red Dragon.” Dolarhyde will be played by Richard Armitage (The Hobbit), and this clip finally gives us a look at him in all his glory. Add in even more of Gillian Anderson as the enigmatic Bedelia Du Maurier, and this could be the best the show’s been yet.
Hannibal returns June 4 at 10 p.m. EST on NBC.
