Great news for those of you who have been watching the first season of NBC’s Hannibal, and think it’s the greatest show in the world on network television at the moment. According to a press release today, NBC has officially ordered another 13-episode season of the critically applauded drama Hannibal. The second season will air no sooner than mid-season.
NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke stated the following about Hannibal, and series creator Bryan Fuller:
“We’re so proud of Bryan’s vision for a show that is richly textured, psychologically complex, and very compelling. There are many great stories still to be told.”
Critics have strongly embraced the series. Alan Sepinwall of Hitfix.com said “Hannibal is the last of this season’s serial killer shows. It’s also, by a very wide margin, the best.” Jeff Jensen of Entertainment Weekly called “Hannibal finely acted, visually scrumptious, and deliciously subversive.” Matt Roush of TV Guide said the show is “feverishly twisted, fascinatingly macabre, and visually remarkable.”
Hannibal Episode 10 – “Buffet Froid” starts tonight at 10:00 ET. So don’t forget to tune into NBC, and if you’re looking for more, be sure to check out our weekly reviews.
