I can tell you why I stopped watching... regardless of its style I didn't care one bit about what happened to any of the characters. Zero investment. Explained in earlier posts so I won't bother repeating... I do not dislike the show rather I couldn't find a reason to keep watching.

Just kept wondering why Will didn't get the gun on the floor and shoot Hannibal.

In space, no one can hear you scream . . .

I wondered more about Hannibal getting on a plane after leaving that mayhem at his house. Wouldn't police want to question him or inform him of what happened?

Where did you get that info? It's incorrect and contradicts what Fuller said (below) and doesn't make sense anyways, because Hannibal is free.

TVGuide.com chatted with executive producer Bryan Fuller, who also hints at a major reboot to the show in Season 3.

You said next season will be different. Does that mean you're shifting the point of view to be more squarely about Hannibal?
Fuller: Season 3 is going to be a lot of fun because it's going to be taking a lot of disparate elements from the novel Hannibal Rising and the novel Hannibal and mashing them up together as part of the thrust of the season. It's going to be fun to bastardize two novels into one sort of Frankenstein season. I will brace everybody right now: We're significantly changing the Hannibal origin story from Hannibal Rising.

Hannibal is always at least a couple of steps ahead of everybody else. I strongly suspect that Hannibal established at least one false identity and used it to fly out of the country.

Might have been wrong on the Season, but things may get "pushed up" as far as schedule goes if the series is in peril of being cancelled....If another place gave the show safety then they may keep it as "planned".......As far as reboot goes, thanks for the chuckle...

There's no way he could possibly have explained it all, especially if anyone survives to tell their tale. Hannibal has completely written off this chapter in his life, and hopes to start over somewhere else.

I did find it interesting that he still has some sense of professional ethics, as he burned all his psychiatric notes for his other patients to avoid embroiling them in his murderous activities now that the entire story will unravel. Once that happens, Interpol will be after him as well. He must know there's really no place he can go for sanctuary after this, and he may have achieved some peace with it. Perhaps that's what we are to infer from that last glimpse of him reclining into his airline seat.

If we know anything about Hannibal he is a master of "disguise", fluent in more than 1 language he will be able to slip into a foreign country and assume a new identity...He evaded and escaped many many times, so I have no doubt his plan is in tact otherwise he would not lean back in comfort....

I had also read after season 1 that the plan was to do Red Dragon during Season 3. They obviously changed their plans since then.

EDIT. Ahh, I found the article. I (we) stand corrected. The original plan was for Red Dragon to be Season 4. Characters from Silence of the Lambs could be difficult to use due to Sony owning the rights.

So we can expect Will and Jack, if they survived, to follow in pursuit ? I suppose the FBI has at least some international pull. Otherwise, there may be a whole new set of characters.

I think it's "safe" to assume Jack and Will survived this attack and will peruse. How much longer they stay alive is only known by the show runners. FBI can work with international agencies (INTERPOL) to assist in getting him. They have to find out l he's taken flight and where he's gone 1st though. After that it will be tracking his movements after he's landed as slipping in and out of
Countries will be easy until the issue a wide net.

From the Vulture awards clipped from the HOTP thread... But we Fannibals already know what the best TV show currently in production is, don't we?



* * * *

TV Notes
Vulture TV Awards: The Best Episode of the Year Is the Hannibal Season 2 Finale

Up next: a look back at five of the best episodes from the past year of television, as selected by Vulture television critic Matt Zoller Seitz, including an upstart at the top spot.

1. Hannibal, “Mizumono”: Written by Steve Lightfoot and Bryan Fuller, Directed by David Slade
This show demonstrates so much formal daring each week that even the most audacious innovations and flourishes in other live-action series seem tame in comparison. The season-two finale is one of the greatest hours of TV it has ever been my pleasure, or horror, to sit through. If you have never watched Hannibal, you’ll think it absurd that I briefly considered making this a list of five Hannibal episodes. If you have seen the show, you get it (and if this were a list of five Hannibal episodes, the other four would be “Shiizakana,” “Naka-Choko,” "Tome-wan," and "Sakizuke”). I won’t describe the finale or the show in detail for the many TV viewers who have yet to sample Hannibal (if you don’t mind spoilers, you can read my appreciation of the show’s second season here), but I would urge anyone who hasn’t done so yet to commit to a full two-season binge immediately.

Hannibal recruits The Hobbit star Richard Armitage for killer role.
By Michael Slezak |Tuesday, January 13, 2015 | tvline.com

Richard Armitage has found a role into which he can really sink his teeth.

The Hobbit actor will join NBC’s Hannibal in Season 3 in the terrifying role of Francis Dolarhyde (aka The Tooth Fairy). The main villian of Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon, one book in the series on which Hannibal is based, the hulking Dolarhyde is a serial killer with a set of chompers that would make the Big Bad Wolf a little envious — and a penchant for targeting entire households for slaughter.

Armitage’s gig is slated to last six episodes.

Last month, the role of sociopathic Mason Verger was recast — with Joe Anderson (The Divide) stepping in for Michael Pitt (Boardwalk Empire). Gillian Anderson was also upgraded to series regular as the mysterious Bedelia du Maurier in advance of Hannibal‘s third season.

Hannibal will return to NBC’s schedule at midseason.

Nope.




NBC Hates Us: Hannibal Won't Be Back for a While

Quote:
Proving that NBC really doesn't want us to be happy, network chairman Bob Greenblatt told reporters during the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Friday that Hannibal won't be premiering until this summer. "We love [Hannibal], but we also love summer. We have a lot of good and exciting plans for summer," he said.

On one hand, the news that the serial killer drama is being held for the warmer months isn't all that surprising—Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller previously hinted that the show wouldn't be back until April or May. However, having to wait so long to find out what happened to Will, Jack, Alana, and Abigail—who were all left in different states of blood loss in the Season 2 finale—definitely sucks for the show's fans. Plus, Hannibal just doesn't feel like a summer show. A summer premiere date conjures up images of blue skies and entire towns surrounded by giant, logic-defying domes. That's not what Hannibal is; instead, the series' dark and disturbing imagery is best consumed in the dark, all alone, during that cold, gray time of year when winter begins to transition into spring.

On the other hand, Hannibal is Fuller's first TV series to make it to three seasons (Pushing Daisies and Dead Like Me were both canceled after two, and Wonderfalls got the axe after just 13 episodes), so maybe we shouldn't complain about having to wait a few more months to consume its tasty delights. The mere fact that the series—which shares many qualities with FX, AMC, and HBO's best—exists on broadcast television is cause for celebration. But with that said, why won't NBC at least pretend to care about it? Delaying Hannibal's third season until summer creates the unfortunate impression that the network isn't invested in the show's success, especially considering its massive critical acclaim.

But at this point, I suppose that's neither here nor there, so what other shows are part of the "exciting" summer plans Greenblatt mentioned? One of them will be the limited series Aquarius, which is set in 1967 and stars David Duchovny as a detective working a missing persons case that leads him to a young cult leader who's recruiting women to join his cause. The cult leader, of course, is a young Charles Manson, and according to the trailer NBC screened for reporters, the guy strums a guitar, goes by Charlie, and has a pretty good beard for a future murderer.
NBC is also eyeing summertime to launch its upcoming Heroes reboot starring Jack Coleman and Zachary Levi.

I saw Gillian Anderson on Top Gear. It was surprising. I've only see her be serious and kind of bitchy in most shows. She was pretty funny and has quite the potty mouth! She was entertaining and turned a pretty decent lap as well.

Only in this case, it would be wrong. She's as American as apple pie. Lots of Yanks turn laps on 'Top Gear'.

While American TV and movies are flooded with Brits affecting an American accent, Gillian is one of the rare ones who turn it the other way.

"American as apple pie" she did live in PR (still US) and then UK for 10-11 years of her early life. Yes we know lots of yanks turn laps on TG I think what threw some off who haven't watched her off screen was that she can slip in and out of a "British" accent. Her accent does not seem to be "fake" as many people who are young and raised often will "slip" into old ways.

I probably should have added a smiley to my comment as I was being a little sarcastic

The "winky" emoticon would probably have precluded my comment. If one person thought she was a Brit I probably would have let it pass (she was born in Chicago). But two...

the most under-rated show on TV and one of the best shows ever on network television returns next week...I'm really looking forward to Season 3...NBC recently released a new First Look trailer for the new season...

I am a fan of the show. I wouldn't say yet it is one of the best ever (although limiting it to network shows, you may be right) but I thought it was the best show last year.

that's the key qualifier- one of the best shows ever on network TV...not including premium cable or even basic cable...there are better shows on those channels such as Game of Thrones, Deadwood, The Wire etc...Hannibal is my favorite network show since LOST...hopefully the ratings pick up this year as I would like to see them delve into Silence of the Lambs for Season 4 (if they ever get permission from MGM which still owns the rights to those characters)...if they don't get permission then I'm wondering if Miriam Lass will take over the Clarice Starling role

There's a good argument for 'Hannibal' being the best show on television at the moment, and one of the best ever. But it may take the titles of "most inventive", "most atmospheric", and "most scary" more easily. Was it even nominated for an Emmy for Best Drama series?
