Hannibal will soon be taking a bite out of NBC’s Thursday lineup.
Bryan Fuller’s long-awaited TV adaptation will premiere on Thursday, April 4 at 10/9c, the network confirms.
The series, a contemporary take on the characters from Thomas Harris’ Red Dragon novel, focuses on the fledgling relationship between FBI agent Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) and his mentor Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen, pictured).
Hannibal will fill the void left by NBC’s short-lived Do No Harm, which was pulled off the schedule last week after two low-rated episodes. Encores of Law & Order: SVU will air in the Thursday-at-10 perch through March.
The stellar cast also includes Laurence Fishburne as FBI agent Jack Crawford and Wonderfalls’ Caroline Dhavernas as an FBI consultant. X-Files’ Gillian Anderson will also appear as Lecter’s shrink.
