The TV show Hannibal, now entering season 3, is disturbing and fascinating and disgusting and beautiful and horrifying (depending on the scene), which is probably why I can’t stop watching it! And it’s certainly full of surprises as well. Based on the Thomas Harris novels, Bryan Fuller has called his team’s take on the character and stories a “mash-up,” which I like because it means they can revisit old material but still give it new twists.
At San Diego Comic-Con this year, I got to learn about some of the upcoming twists and turns at the aptly named “Hannibal Pannibal,” and at the cast and crew interviews afterwards. And now, I get to share all of that with you!
