Hannibal fans will need to be bloody patient.
NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt announced Friday at the Television Critics Association winter press tour that Season 3 of the dark drama will premiere this summer — whereas previous seasons kicked off in April and February, respectively.
“It’s a show we love, it’s critically acclaimed, we love it. And we also love summer,” Greenblatt said. “We have exciting plans for summer,” which most likely will also include the David Duchovny-meets-Charles Manson period drama Aquarius and the Heroes Reborn miniseries (now starring Chuck‘s Zachary Levi).
