NBC reveals debut date for Hannibal

Per TV Line, showrunner Bryan Fuller revealed today that his highly anticipated series HANNIBAL will debut on NBC April 4th at 10 PM. It's about time! The pilot episode is directed by David Slade and with the series exploring the early days of the infamous cannibal, Hannibal Lecter.

Will Graham is a gifted criminal profiler who is on the hunt for a serial killer with the FBI. Graham’s unique way of thinking gives him the astonishing ability to empathize with anyone – even psychopaths. He seems to know what makes them tick. But when the mind of the twisted killer he’s pursuing is too complicated for even Will to comprehend, he enlists the help of Dr. Lecter, one of the premier psychiatric minds in the country. Armed with the uncanny expertise of the brilliant doctor, Will and Hannibal (known as a serial killer only to the audience) form a brilliant partnership and it seems there’s no villain they can’t catch. If Will only knew…

Now that we finally know the release date, it's time to start getting excited for what will hopefully be a disturbing look into the early life of Lecter led by Mads Mikkelsen. Below you can see a new look at Mikkelsen's Hannibal as he stands over a delicious meal that surprisingly doesn't consist of human body parts.
