‘Hannibal’ Season 3 Promo Teases Red Dragon (VIDEO)

Hannibal returns for Season 3 in just two weeks, and we’re finally getting a closer look at what’s in store thanks to this behind-the-scenes promo, in which the actors go into detail about the direction for the new season.

As star Caroline Dhavernas explains, Season 3 will serve as a sort of “blank slate” for the series, as we follow Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) and Bedelia (Gillian Anderson) in Europe, with the husband and wife duo presumably under assumed names. Hugh Dancy, who plays Will Graham, also notes that the show will be heavily invested in Hannibal’s time in Italy, considering how seamlessly he integrates himself into that society. Meanwhile, Hobbit star Richard Armitage reveals he’s joined the cast as Francis Dolarhyde, a.k.a. The Red Dragon, and we get some fitting teases that show us just what manner of person we’re dealing with here. It’s a fascinating look at what’s sure to be one of the big events of the summer, as Hannibal finally comes back for its third season.
