Welcome To Shocktober With New Hannibal Season 2 Poster

Earlier today, Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller gave us a glimpse into the future, after he tweeted a teaser poster for the show’s upcoming second season. Bryan, who also serves as executive producer for the show, designed the poster in collaboration with the show’s FX team at RocketScience. ”After a horrifying descent into madness in season 1, this image ironically represents the perspective of a scrappier, clearer-minded Will Graham in season 2. The scales have fallen from his eyes and he finally sees Hannibal Lecter for the monster he is.” The new poster comes the day after Fuller spoke to CraveOnline about the past, present and future where he hints at a “new status quo” for the series. “So that game begins anew in season two, but under a completely different paradigm where you have Will institutionalised, Hannibal free [and] no-one believing Will because he very clearly lost his mind.” He went on to add that when the season 2 kicks off it will have “a completely different flavour and structure and style of storytelling… We shift everything so dramatically that it keeps the audience on their toes because they now don't know what to expect.” When asked about his intentions for Red Dragon and whether he was planning on pulling it apart to create a season around it, Fuller stated that he hadn’t come to any decisions “…it’s a relatively contained story. So I’m thinking, do we do a six-episode mini-series of Red Dragon, or do we do a full season? That’s one of the things I’m figuring out as we look at Seasons 3 and 4 from the standpoint of Season 2” And what about Clarice Starling? Well, at present Fuller doesn’t have the rights to that particular character, “MGM has the rights to any character that originated in Silence of the Lambs, and Gaumont has the rights to any character that originated in Red Dragon.” Despite this setback, he is “secretly hoping that by the time we get to Season 5, which would be the Silence of the Lambs era, maybe some deal could be brokered between Gaumont and MGM where we could co-produce a series that has both Will Graham and Clarice Starling in it, but I just don’t know if they’re ever going to let us do that.” But all is not to worry as Bryan has a back-up plan should the character of Clarice never be released, “But if we don’t get the rights to the Clarice Starling character, we will introduce a similar character, Shmarlice Shmarling, that won’t get us sued.” Hannibal returns to screens early in 2014 for a 13 episode run, with the first episode titled “Kaiseki.” For the full interview with Bryan Fuller, head over to CraveOnline.
