Get ready to wok up another plate of Hunan Human and steady your stomach for plenty of gastronomic puns because NBC has announced a premiere date for Hannibal's second season! The ratings-deficient but critically delicious take on Thomas Harris's famous characters comes back for seconds on February 28 at 10pm. Hooray!
Hannibal will follow Grimm on Fridays, taking over for Dracula: Business Dude when that series concludes its first season. NBC's midseason Fridays at 10pm were initially supposed to belong to new pirate drama Crossbones, but now who knows when that will air.
In addition to a premiere date, NBC also released a sweet new poster for Season 2, with a little switcheroo between the two main characters—Will Graham and Hannibal Lecter—and one of the franchise's iconic props.
Can you keep a secret? I can tell you that Hannibal topped at least one TV.com writer's Top 10 list of 2013 (stay tuned for that article).
