"Hannibal" Season 3 to be "Italian" and "FBI-Light," Bryan Fuller Teases Gorgeous Italian Chapel
Hungry for more "Hannibal?" if you've seen the first and second seasons of Bryan Fuller's NBC horror show, chances are high that you probably are- and Fuller's feeling the same way.
The "Hannibal" showrunner recently took to Twitter, showing off an unbelievable photograph of a location in Italy that might end up appearing on the show. The image, seen above, shows off the Cappella Palatina, a chapel in Palermo, Sicily that's more than 1,000 years old.
Fuller, in his Twitter photo, adds the caption:
"I'VE BEEN SPENDING A LOT OF TIME IN THIS PLACE #HANNIBAL SEASON 3"
Who knows why he went with all caps (it tends to turn regular thoughts into screamed thoughts, but his meaning is clear- we may just be seeing that chapel in the upcoming season of "Hannibal."
Fashion & Style offers a number of speculations as to what Hannibal Lecter might be doing in the chapel- apparently, at one point in the books he curated a library in Italy. As well, it could double as his mind-palace.
This stems from an earlier Fashion & Style report from Comic-Con, where Fuller hinted that the season would in fact take place in Italy. When asked about what cuisine the third season's episodes would be based around (each season of "Hannibal" names its episodes after the foods of a certain culture- French cuisine for season one, Japanese for season two), Fuller also gave us the answer: "Italian."
Fuller also hinted that a generous portion of the season would take place in Italy, and that it would be fairly light on the FBI portions of the show- including Will Graham, a major character played by actor Hugh Dancy. Fuller described this portion of the season as "FBI-light."
Presumably, though, it won't be light on the blood and viscera. This is "Hannibal," after all.
