Look At This: 'Hannibal' Season 2 trailer

One of my favorite shows of Summer 2013 was "Hannibal." And, thankfully, it's coming back!

"Hannibal" is a retooling of the origin story of famed fictional serial killer/cannibal Hannibal Lecter, and it is a fantastic show. And there's a trailer for season two (watch out for season one spoilers):

The show follows criminal profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), who, when the series opens, is consulting with the FBI on several murders of young women. Will has the unfortunate but helpful talent of being able to empathize completely with murderers, especially serial killers, but, of course, this makes him a little unstable. So, the agent in charge, Jack Crawford (Lawrence Fishburne), puts Will under the watchful eye of a brilliant psychiatrist who, of course, turns out to be Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen). 

"Hannibal" is a thrilling, twisty crime/horror drama, with a wonderful dash of black humor (the cannibal puns are nothing short of fantastic). It is beautifully shot, with a unique visual style that gives it a haunting, almost dreamlike feel. It's a gorgeous, exciting show, disturbing though it is (not everyone will be able to watch this one), and I'm thrilled to get to see it.

If you missed season one, well, hurry up and watch it - season 2 premieres February 28 on NBC.
