    Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny shows on the same night…

    • Steven says:

      I guess until Fox works out all the details to bring back The X Files then this will have to do.

      • Williwasnt says:

        This will more than do. Even if the Duchovny show is a flop, Hannibal is more than enough entertainment for the night.

    What’s it been 4? or is 5 years since we last saw Hannibal?

  5. Azrielen says:

    The news that’s it’s being moved off of Fridays is FANTASTIC! I think it will do excellently as a summer show. I am so excited!

    HANNIBAL should fill in Thursday once SLAP is done or now, to replace the cancelled ALLEGIANCE.

    A super long wait. -_- Wasn’t it a spring show in 2013 and 2014?

    • Tea says:

      Yes, to replace Do No Harm then to replace Dracula. If it gets the same ratings in summer as it did then, its a lock for renewal.

    Before the show started, I thought about including my husband in watching it as a show we watch together, but it is all mine! My guilty, delicious pleasure.

  11. Van says:

    I do believe a film version of the show would do extremely well, without Sir Anthony. Mads Mikkelsen has the acting chops and intense physicality the role of Hannibal Lecter requires–Anthony Hopkins never played a dynamic version of Lecter-his portrayal was static. Mads brings it believable physicality, intelligence and passion Hopkins never could. Hopkins is an Ex-Lecter.

    I can’t wait fit the season to start. But does anyone worry that the really late start of Season 3…later than originally announced…bodes poorly for a Season 4? At first I wasn’t a fan since I was comparing the series to the movies and story lines of the novels, but once I started to look at it on its own, I fell in love with it. I sure hope the series continues into the future. I like Mads’ spin on Lecter as a fallen angel and the artistry of the series. And like a lot of fans have said, I hate that I actually like Dr. Chilton. LOL
