Hannibal Season 2 Poster, Premiere Date. NBC‘s Hannibal: Season 2 TV show poster has been released as well as its premiere air date. The Hannibal poster alludes to the ending of season 1, a wonderful twist on the established cannon that took the narrative in a completely different direction. The salient question going into this season: how will Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) prove his innocence from inside an insane asylum? Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) insnared Graham in such a tight murder wrap it is instantly the most interesting aspect of the upcoming season, which begins on February 28, 2014. Season 2 of Hannibal will be 13 episodes long.

On the direction of Hannibal and its future seasons from series creator Bryan Fuller:
I can see pretty clearly seven seasons. I think that there are always shifts and alterations and course corrections that you have to take, because you’ll be cruising along and then you’ll hit an idea and go, “Oh, wow, that’s a great idea, we have to do that now.” That being said, I can see the structure for a seven-season arc for the show, but then I also am very open to course corrections along the way to adapt to changes.
…Well, when you get into Season Four, you get into the literature. And so Season Four would be Red Dragon, Season Five would be the The Silence of the Lambs era, Season Six would be the Hannibal era, and then Season Seven would be a resolve to the ending of that book. Hannibal ends on a cliffhanger. … It might be interesting to resolve that in some way and to bring Will Graham back into the picture. So once we get two more seasons, say, of the television show, those are the aren’t-novelized stories, and then we would get into expansions of the novels after that and kind of using the novels as a backbone for season arcs that would then be kind of enhanced.
…It would be about incorporating [Will Graham] in a way that he hasn’t been incorporated in the books, because Will Graham was only mentioned in The Silence of the Lambs, he was not seen, and so I would be curious to see what happens to Will Graham after Red Dragon. By the time of Red Dragon, he’s married to Molly and has her son from a previous marriage, but doesn’t have any children of his own. And then that relationship is more complicated by Francis Dolarhyde and there were suggestions that there was a not-so-happy ending for Will Graham after Red Dragon because he has his face carved up and you wonder what’s going to happen to Will now, and I’m curious to see what happens to Will after that.
I can not wait to see Francis Dolarhyde done right. I would love to play him.
On legal arena and what won’t be in future seasons:
There’s a lot of material there, and a lot that he probably can’t use — don’t expect to see Clarice Starling, due to rights issues. (Note the use of the word “era” to cover his ass — he’s not saying he’s going to remake those films, or re-adapt those books, exactly.)
Hannibal: Season 2 will also star Caroline Dhavernas, Hettienne Park, Laurence Fishburne, Scott Thompson, Aaron Abrams, and Lara Jean Chorostecki.
