updated – May 3, 2015 Sunday EDT ‘Hannibal’ Season 3 Premiere, Spoiler, And More: Is Dr. Lecter Going To Get Caught Abruptly?

“Hannibal” season 3 premiere, set for June 4 this year, will see Mads Mikkelsen’s title role in Italy along with Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier (played by Gillian Anderson).

They are away from Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), Agent Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne), and Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) who they almost left for dead in the second season’s finale. Also, Dr. Lecter and Bedelia are in Europe posing as couple while preying on a new victim.

Just last week, Bryan Fuller revealed that the “Hannibal” season 3 premiere episode will see a James Bond-like action with the cannibal doctor on a motorcycle chase with the authorities. In the first two seasons, Hannibal did not have to do much in escaping the authorities as his cover hasn’t been blown yet. This season, will the case be different? They are in a different country and probably, no one knows about him yet.

Will the infamous cannibal psychiatrist get caught right in the “Hannibal” season 3 premiere? According Mads Mikkelsen himself, that would not matter.

“We should not forget the fact that Hannibal has an ability to go into his mind palace, whenever he wants to,” Mikkelsen said in an interview with TV Guide. “So being incarcerated isn’t necessarily the end of the story for him.”

Mikkelsen also said that his character is not that worried about his capture.

“Hannibal is running, but he’s not hiding,” Mikkelsen told TVGuide.com during a recent visit to the Toronto set. “His vanity will always bring him into the public light somehow.”

The third season of the NBC TV series will go deep into Thomas Harris’ Hannibal Lecter book series where the show’s character was based from. In “Red Dragon”, Lecter spent his time in jail while assisting Will Graham catch the Tooth Fairy, played in the film by Ralph Fiennes and will now be portrayed by Richard Armitage in the NBC horror series.

The “Hannibal” season 3 premiere episode is called “Antipasto.”
