Lots of Hannibal goodness this week from Paleyfest.
Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller revealed that the show will not use as many tableaus in the new season as it has in the past and that the back-half of the show’s third season will primarily be focused on the Red Dragon storyline where it will be the only case that is examined.
In addition, for fans wondering about the status of Hannibal and Bedelia, Mads Mikkelsen said that there won’t be many answers provided.
“We’re not going to give the whole truth away,” said Mikkelsen, explaining that a certain level of ambiguity is vital for the tone and tension of the show to work. “If you get an explanation for the whole thing, it falls apart.”
Finally, the show has also cast Japanese model and actress Tao Okamoto to play Lady Murasaki, a mysterious woman with secrets and a character who has the ability to manipulate others with her beauty.
