‘Hannibal’ Season 2: NBC Renews for 13 Episodes

NBC Hannibal Season 2 Renewed

We hope you like seconds, because NBC’s ‘Hannibal‘ has officially been announced to return for a second season, just hours before the debut of the inaugural season’s 10th episode “Buffet Froid.” The second run of Bryan Fuller‘s darkly delicious NBC drama — which is liberally adapted from Thomas Harris’s novels — will return for 13 episodes with a likely 2014 debut, but what can we expect from a second season?

“We’re so proud of Bryan’s vision for a show that is richly textured, psychologically complex, and very compelling,” NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke said of the ‘Hannibal’ renewal. “There are many great stories still to be told.”

That will certainly prove true, as series creator and showrunner Bryan Fuller previously voiced an optimistic desire to cast music legend David Bowie, as well as ‘Pushing Daisies‘ stars Lee Pace, Kristin Chenoweth and Anna Friel in season 2 roles. Also worth noting is that NBC’s press release claims ‘Hannibal’ season 2 “will air no earlier than midseason,” potentially placing its premiere in summer 2014, much as the show’s first season had been targeted for summer 2013 prior to ‘Do No Harm”s cancellation.

This announcement arrived just hours before the debut of ‘Hannibal”s 10th episode, which kicks off a host of new and returning guest stars in the coming weeks. We’ll bring you the latest on NBC’s ‘Hannibal,’ but in the meantime, celebrate the season 2 renewal in the comments, and tune in for tonight’s “Buffet Froid” on NBC!
