On June 4th, a week from now, Hannibal is back on TV! It’s in its third season and I’m super excited.
Some people are hesitant to watch it and I understand because I felt the same way. Cannibalism? Ew.
But a friend of mine was so enthusiastic about it that it gave me that push to watch it. And it’s really good! Together, we found the Toronto location of the establishing shot for Hannibal Lector’s office.
Bryan Fuller, the creator of the show, does dark humor well. He’s been a part of shows like Pushing Daisies and one of my favourites, Dead Like Me. And oh man, the kind of television he makes is a work of art. Even the most grotesque scenes in Hannibal are so beautiful, a mesh of horror and beauty.
Last season, the show ended in a bloody battle and now the hunt is on for Hannibal. The characters finally realize what we, the audience, knew all along that Hannibal is a dangerous serial killer and cannibal.
Here is season three’s trailer.
