“Hannibal” season 3 premiere, which will air three weeks from now, will be spent exploring the relationship between Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and Dr. Bedelia du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) while they are in Italy.
They are in this European country posing as couple after they flew away from the United States in last season’s finale. The two have a complex relationship but during their time in Italy, they will fully embrace their cover.
In a new promo released for “Hannibal” season 3, Dr. Hannibal Lecter and Dr. Maurier share a dance and then welcomed a visitor. Dr. Lecter says”My wife and I would love to have you for dinner.” This is clearly a reference to what the cannibalistic doctor really wants, human flesh.
Lecter and Bedelia’s time in the “Hannibal” season 3 premiere won’t be all fun, though. As the promo video shows, the female psychiatrist is aware of the current situation she is in. She knows someday, Hannibal Lecter will kill her.
“Episode one is all about Bedelia and her relationship with Hannibal Lecter,” Fuller said of the “Hannibal” season 3 premiere episode in an interview with Digital Spy. “So it really does feel like ‘What are we watching?’ Will Graham isn’t in it, none of the other characters that you’ve been familiar with, it’s just Hannibal and Bedelia, and their history over three different periods of time.”
“Hannibal” season 3 premiere episode will be called “Antipasto” and will air on June 4. Read the full synopsis below:
“The dark and haunting series “Hannibal” returns for a third season, revealing the fates of characters hanging in the balance and their continuing psychological cat-and-mouse games. After the shocking events of the season finale, Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) is on the run in Europe – accompanied by his psychiatrist Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) – sporting a new identity but servicing the same insatiable appetite. As the lives of Will (Hugh Dancy), Jack (Laurence Fishburne) and Alana (Caroline Dhavernas) converge toward Hannibal again, their deadly dance turns in startling and unexpected ways, and nothing will ever be the same again.”
