Hannibal's Red Dragon is just around the corner.
The NBC psychological thriller will hurtle three years into the future with episode 8, leaving the fallout from Dr. Lecter's (Mads Mikkelsen) European adventure in the distant past. As "The Great Red Dragon" kicks off, viewers will be treated to an entirely different landscape.
"Dr. Hannibal Lecter has been under lock and key for three years at the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane, when a new villain arises in Francis Dolarhyde (guest star Richard Armitage), also known as 'The Tooth Fairy,'" NBC teased. "As the investigation unfolds Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) approaches Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) to help catch this vicious serial killer who is targeting families."
Will, however, will have started a new life in the wake of his "friendship" with the infamous cannibal - a wife, a kid, and a break from the FBI. It will take a lot to pull the profiler back in, and Graham will probably be worse off for the experience.
