The new trailer for ‘Hannibal’ Season 2 has arrived. The heated rivalry between Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) and Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) will reach an epic climax as Will desperately attempts to prove his innocence. Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) is also featured in the clip while interacting with Lecter and Will. It seems that Dr. Du Maurier will be caught in the crossfire with Lecter attempting to brainwash Will, and Will, struggling to fight off the idea that he is responsible for the crimes. Dr. Du Maurier is Lecter’s psychotherapis, in the clip she says that Lecter is obsessed with Will. Can she unravel the situation so everyone else can see Lecter for what he really is, and will she end up on his dinner table? “I believe you” she says to Will at one point in the clip, will this be his opportunity to prove his innocence?

In another scene, Lecter and Special Agent Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) are engaged in a bloody knife fight. Is this the end of Lecter’s killing spree and will Crawford survive the attack? Hannibal is still free and has joined the FBI by taking Will’s place. Strap in Geeks, we are in for a very interesting season!

Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy and Laurence Fishburne is also supported by newcomer Michael Pitt as Mason Verger this coming season. Verger is described as “a wealthy, unstable patient of Dr. Lecter’s who starts to play a dangerous cat-and-mouse game” with the serial killer. Fans of the ‘Hannibal’ mythology will remember that Gary Oldman played an older, deformed version of the character in Ridley Scott‘s 2001 film.

“Hannibal” season 2 will premiere Friday, February 28 on NBC.
