After taking an extended break between seasons, NBC's primetime horror series "Hannibal," which adapts Thomas Harris' sinister cannibal for televsion, returns on June 4 for a third season that looks to be even more dark, gruesome and cannibalistic than ever, and Variety has debuted a new clip from the season premiere, entitled "Antipasto."
The clip finds Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and former therapist Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson), who finished Season Two on a plane to Europe, now settled into a comfortable new life and free of the FBI. Something that promises to leave Lecter free to cut loose, stalk his prey and dine on their flesh. As the clip below proves, and showrunner Bryan Fuller hinted at in his conversation with SPINOFF, Hannibal and Bedelia's new life in Italy might not be all wine and roses.
'Hannibal' Season Three premieres Thursday, June 4 at 10 P.M. on NBC.
