When Hannibal returns for its second season, Will Graham will be in quite a bit of trouble.

Arrested and locked up for grievous crimes he never committed, Will (Hugh Dancy) needs a top-notch lawyer to help him regain his freedom. In steps Leonard Braver.

With such a high profile case, Braver is hoping that the proceedings could make his career, according to E!. Also, with such a strong case against him, no one else would want to touch his defense with a ten-foot pole.

However, Will knows he has been set up by Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen), a carefully plotted deception that Will began to figure out in "Savoureux." According to series creator Brain Fuller, this moment of realization regarding Hannibal's character had to happen early in the shows intended seven-season arc.

"Because the audience knows from the first frame, before Hannibal is even onscreen that we are telling the story of Hannibal Lecter, who is going to be caught by Will Graham and incarcerated, Will had to figure Hannibal out in the first season," Fuller told the A.V. Club.

While Braver works to get Will released, the show writers will have to deal with having their protagonist locked up.

"That's the great thing about imagination is that Will's imagination can transport him out of [prison] and into places, cinematically, that will allow him to continue being a pivotal part of the story, even though he's locked up," Fuller said, according to the A.V. Club. "One of the things that was really interesting in the books, is the concept of Hannibal's memory palace, the place where he goes to survive incarceration with the virtual-reality system that exists between his ears. We'll be seeing Will create his own version of the mind palace over the course of the second season."

With that statement, it sounds like it will be quite awhile before Will breaths free air again.

Hannibal will return to NBC.
