It is almost undoubtedly the darkest show on TV and it can be a tough watch but Hannibal is also one of the best things on TV…

And we here at FTN are so stoked for it’s return… it’s been a long wait since last June. And we’re confident it will be worth every minute.

“Hannibal,” based on the Thomas Harris novels “Red Dragon,” “The Silence of the Lambs,” ‘Hannibal” and “Hannibal Rising,” stars Hugh Dancy as expert criminal profiler Will Graham, who has a unique ability to peer into the mind of serial killers. Mads Mikkelsen stars as Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a psychiatrist who is helping with the cases and is also a serial killer himself.

In addition to Fuller, Martha De Laurentiis, Jesse Alexander, Chris Brancato, Sara Colleton, Katie O’Connell, Elisa Roth, Sidonie Dumas and Christophe Riandee also serve as executive producers. The series is produced by Gaumont International Television, Dino De Laurentiis Company and Living Dead Guy Productions, and co-commissioned internationally by Sony Pictures Television Networks.

“Hannibal” returns to NBC Thursday, June 4 at 10pm, immediately after the network’s brand new series, “Aquarius.” On beyond the similar thematic elements, “Aquarius” should pair nicely with “Hannibal” as it stars Anderson’s “The X-Files” co-star, David Duchovny.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
