‘Hannibal’ Returns! Are You Ready?




Gird you loins, lovelies, for it’s the day we’ve long awaited. The second course of Hannibal debuts tonight and the build up is INTENSE. I don’t know about you, but I’m barely able to concentrate, especially with all the ways we’re being prepped as proverbial lambs for tonight’s slaughter! Shit’s about to get real, violent, and bloody. Finally! RELEASE THE HOUNDS!

Yesterday, Bryan Fuller (is our King) announced exciting news about limited ‘Hannibal’ apparel set to go on sale today, and ONLY for today, in celebration of S2. The specially designed shirts have since dropped on ShirtPunch.com and they are positively lush! Designed by TEEvsTEE, the official gear depicts stark images that are, by now, iconic to the fandom. It’s not hyperbole to say that I woke up this morning, bought one of each, THEN had my coffee. I never do anything before coffee. In fact, BREATHING is barely a thing before my first cup of Bustelo, so, yeah. It’s just that serious.

*drool* Let’s look at these close up, shall we?

Unf. It’s a bit like looking at the sun! And, should you need to, you can score these on both tees AND hoodies.

Yesterday was also when the ‘Hannibal‘ twitter (@NBCHannibal) had a delightfully adorable Q & A session with Bry, Martha De Laurentiis (@neoprod), and Mads Mikkelsen, calling it “GoneMads”. Sadly, I wasn’t able to participate though the read-back gives us gold such as Mads’ love of Thai food, “but I would want to be something cooked longer like a Lamb spinach. 9-10 hours”, and Bry’s belief that we’ll be even more devastated by season 2’s end than season 1’s. That…doesn’t bode well for our collective sanity. *gulp*

How dare they with this level of cute, omg?! (via @NBCHannibal)

Then this happened:

...welp. XD
…welp. XD

And since the folks at the official twitter/tumblr accounts know that receipts are everything…

RECEIPT OF MADS SEEING TUMBLR FOR THE FIRST TIME. Yup, crying again. I can practically hear Martha’s cackling from here. <3 (via @NBCHannibal)

So that’s it, guys. It’s February 28th, season 2 premieres tonight at 10pm on NBC, AND WE SOMEHOW SURVIVED. Woohoooooooo!


New ‘Hannibal’ Teaser Warns Us To “Stay Away”

The ‘Hannibal’ slogan for season two is “Embrace The Madness”, this we know. What it should have been is “Release The Madness” because, wow, the past week has been a barrage of teaser after teaser. Not that anyone is complaining! I mean, the premiere date is less than a month away and we are, indeed, hungry for the second course. But, well, the official ‘Hannibal’ Tumblr put it best:




To be honest, this fandom has been assaulted. Which, you know, naturally means that we’re digging our figurative fingers into the wounds and sighing out our rapture. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh.




THANK YOU, NBC. Yet again! You are definitely the caring Dom(inant) in this relationship!

Now, while all the new tidbits have been equally sexy, my current fave (something new could always upset that), is the brand-spanking-new one from yesterday. It’s not particularly long or meaty as compared to the others, but it’s just such a perfect representation of any Fannibal’s inner monologue! Complete with bad-ass background music, I kid you not. If you know/love a Fannibal, I can bet freshly minted cash that this is precisely what’s going through their head when you mention something mundane about dinner.


Sorry, bro. Except not. Never. Nope. Check the rest out here.
