As Hannibal and Dr. Du are in Italy after leaving a grotesque crime scene in the United States, they realize they can’t evade the past. The FBI soon traces their whereabouts to hunt them down following their past entanglements. The principal cast members that will be appearing in the Hannibal season 3 series include Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Caroline Dhavernas, Hettienne Park, Aaron Abrams, Scott Thompson, Laurence Fishburne and Lara Jean Chorostecki.

Hugh Dancy recommended Mads Mikkelsen to play the role of Hannibal Lecter since they developed a friendship when filming King Arthur in 2004. Together, they filled in the back story of Anthony Hopkins’ Dr. Lecter with some creepy cult charms, the addition made the Hannibal TV show even more successful. Nonetheless, the cult followings were disliked by the NBC crew and had the series removed from TV airing after the third season.

It is worth noting that Hannibal series borrows characters from the novels Red Dragon, Hannibal and Hannibal Rising. No characters from The Silence of the Lambs, which is the series that brought the Hannibal Lecter character together with Clarice Starling to the spotlight, appear in this TV show.

The season begins with Hannibal fled in Italy with his psychiatrist Dr. Bedela Du to try and start a new life. However, Hannibal gets to what he does best, killing people for meals and arranging them in artistic ways.
