Season Three Of ‘Hannibal’ Will Need A Little More Time In The Oven

Share Button

Just like the rest of you fans of the NBC horror drama ‘Hannibal’ we were expecting to be delving into the third course of this awesomely original show based on the world of the dynamite Thomas Harris novels.  This upcoming season is said to delve into territory covered in the era of ‘Red Dragon’, a spot we’ve touched on lightly this past season.

Here’s the deal, NBC announced that season three won’t be ready to serve until this summer.  What!!!!

No reason is given other than a coy little quote from network honcho Bob Greenblatt, “It’s a show we love, it’s critically acclaimed, we love it, and we also love summer. We have exciting plans for summer.”

Whatever Bob – make us wait, we’re patient folks, go ahead and let that season cure like a fine Prosciutto, we’ll be ready with fork and knife in hand when that dinner bell rings.  As soon as a premiere date is announced, you’ll know.
