The second series of Hannibal returns to British TV in May with more shocking revelations and games of psychological cat and mouse.
We join the new series to find Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) is locked in a mental asylum accused of Hannibal Lecter’s crimes (Mads Mikkelsen). Now that Will sees Hannibal for what he truly is, he faces a fight to prove his own sanity and convince those closest to him he is innocent of murder. Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) is dealing with his own feelings about Will, and whether his protégé is in fact a cold-blooded killer.
Looking for answers, Jack turns to a man he has come to trust: Hannibal Lecter. With Will locked up, Hannibal becomes Jack’s new consultant on cases. Hannibal is torn between self- preservation and his desire to keep Will close to him, despite advice from his psychiatrist Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) to stay away.
The deadly dance between these characters continues to turn in startling and unexpected ways, in a season that will show nothing can ever be the same again…
Supporting roles in the series include Gillian Anderson as Lecter’s therapist and Cynthia Nixon who will play Kade Prurnell an FBI Oversight employee. Michael Pitt also joins the cast this season to play the notorious character Mason Verger.
Hannibal Series 2 starts on Sky Living HD on the 6th May at 10pm
