Hannibal Stars, Producers Talk 'Mic-Dropping' Finale, Preview Season 3's Talented Mr. Lecter Twists

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

Michael Ausiello sat down in TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con video suite with the executive producer, fellow EP Martha De Laurentiis and cast members Caroline Dhavernas, Aaron Abrams and Scott Thompson to dish some of Season 2’s most shocking moments: Alana Bloom’s “action hero” fall from Lecter’s second-floor window; the “wait! what?” return of Gillian Anderson’s Bedelia du Maurier; and Beverly’s death and what it might mean for Abrams and Thompson’s characters.

Plus, the quintet tease the prospect that not all returning cast members will be playing living characters, hint at new Season 3 players (pulled straight from Thomas Harris’ books) and discuss the reality of sex with America’s favorite cannibal.
