Hannibal: Season One Officially Announced

Posted July 19, 2013 04:41 PM by Webmaster

Lionsgate FilmsLionsgate Home Entertainment has officially announce that it will release on Blu-ray Gaumont International Television's TV series Hannibal: Season One, starring Mads Mikkelsen (A Royal Affair, The Hunt), Hugh Dancy (Black Hawk Down), Laurence Fishburne (King of New York, The Matrix), Caroline Dhavernas (Devil), and Lara Jean Chorostecki. The release will arrive on the U.S. market on September 24th.

From Bryan Fuller, the co-creator of TV's Wonderfalls and Pushing Daisies, David Slade, the director of Hard Candy and The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and based on the novels of Thomas Harris, Hannibal: Season One delves into the complex mind of iconic villain Hannibal Lecter.

FBI Agent Will Graham (Dancy) hunts the most notorious serial killers. Graham is both gifted and cursed with an extraordinary ability: he can think like his prey, seeing what they see and feeling what they feel. What he doesn't know is that his new partner is the most notorious serial killer of all. While pursuing an especially troubling, cannibalistic murderer, Special Agent Jack Crawford (Fishburne) teams Graham with a highly respected psychiatrist - a man with a taste for the criminally minded: Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mikkelsen). Dr. Lecter tests Graham every step of the way, toying with him and playing a game all his own, while they work to unravel the mystery and catch the killer. Like only Lecter can, he twists Graham's mind, daring him to question everything he knows about others...and himself.

The complete first season contains all 13 episodes, including one episode never before aired on TV, plus audio commentaries on select episodes, deleted scenes, a gag reel, storyboards and multiple featurettes that cut deep into the creation of the series.

Special Features:
  • Audio commentaries on select episodes with Cast and Crew including Bryan Fuller, David Slade, Hugh Dancy and more
  • "Hannibal Reborn" featurette
  • "A Taste for Killing" featurette
  • "The FX of Murder" featurette
  • "A Symphony for the Slaughter" featurette
  • Gag Reel
  • Deleted Scenes
  • Pilot Episode Storyboards



Hannibal Executive Producers Bryan Fuller, Martha De Laurentiis and David Slade, along with star Hugh Dancy, announced the much-anticipated Season One Blu-ray release at Thursday night's Comic-Con

I know I've said this before, as have others, but if you passed on this show thinking it was another generic "killer of the week" procedural, I implore you to give it another chance. It actually has a real plot and the events of the first episode reverberate throughout the entire season that just happens to get better and better as it goes along.

I agree with varmintx... it started off strong and got even stronger by the end. It is easily my favorite of last season!

So glad this one has been officially announced for bluray, it was such a stunningly shot season and I am so glad NBC made the right call in renewing it for season 2. Fingers crossed the renewals continue, as Bryan Fuller's grand plan for this series' run is genius and I'd hate for us not to see the story come full circle with the long term endgame they have in mind!!! Also thrilled to see a solid amount of extras for the season 1 release, however it would have made me even happier had NBC included ultraviolet redemption for the 13-episode freshman year. I've recently gotten into having a digital media library, perfect when traveling. Plus considering their other shows include ultraviolet, I was surprised to see it was not listed. Perhaps it was an oversight and will be listed at a later date after all. Thank you NBC!!!

Was very surprised how great this show is. It's the best show on network TV and the best think NBC has put out in many, many years.

So very happy to see this appear on BD. Hannibal and Bates Motel were the two standout shows this past season. Neither of which I thought would be any good going into them.

I thought it was "meh" right up until the last episode, which blew my mind. I went back and watched the whole first season... once... twice... three times. Loved it. Love the nuances of it, the brilliance of the writing, the cleverness of the build-up. It's totally the best thing on television. Preordered my copy a few weeks back, when the price settled in the upper twenties. I'm looking forward to the extra goodies, and hoping it'll tide me over until next spring and season two!

What everyone else has said. I was worried that this would be DVD-only, like so many other broadcast-network shows. But the production design and cinematography are amazing, and deserve the HD treatment (it was Fuller's Pushing Daises on BD that pushed me into finally going Blu-ray)

skyofcrack: I gave up on Bates Motel about 20 minutes into the pilot. Just didn't work for me.

As a bonus... 5 of the 13 episodes will be presented uncut with some extra bits that had to be cut for broadcast.

I agree, Hannibal and Bates Motel were the standout shows of this past season. Its a pity, NBC is still only committed to 1/2 seasons for Hannibal. I had given up on any broadcast TV shows since NBC cancelled "Journeyman" back in 2007. I had no faith in any network bringing any decent show to realization. These 2 shows made me want to watch TV again... of course only these two shows. Nothing else was worth watching. Even though I dont want to be collecting more at my age, I will at least add "Hannibal" to my collection

SIWilson: at least with half seasons, we don't get filler episodes. A LOT of 22 episode seasons get dull right around the middle, since they run out of material.

I actually like the "1/2 seasons." I think having a full 20+, normal American length season would be too much and fear the quality of the show would suffer for quantity.

Of course, maybe I'm just used to watching too many Brit dramas where seasons range from as few as 3, to 6 to once in a while 13ish.

In fact, Bryan Fuller has said: "Doing a cable model on network television gives us the opportunity not to dally in our storytelling because we have a lot of real estate to cover."

Of course, he'd also been hoping that NBC would pick up Mockingbird Lane, his reimagining of The Munsters (they didn't). If they had, he would've wanted to do both shows in 13-episode seasons, one to air during the fall and the other to air in the spring.

To followup my initial post above when this article debuted on July 19th, I am happy that in reference to my desire for an Ultraviolet redemption code...NBC has followed suit as with their other shows to have digital option included within this bluray set! That makes this even more of a must buy, pre-order now y'all ;-D

I like that they're sticking to the cable series half seasons. Keeps things tighter and more focused. 20+ episode seasons generally have too many filler episodes which turn them dull. In my opinion filler episodes almost always hurt a season. Supernatural suffers for it. While I like seasons 1-2 a lot and think filler episodes and all, it was good fun, season 3 had the est pacing by far with only 16 episodes (during the writers strike). It was so focused and tight. Nowadays literally half the season are filler episodes. Do not want to see Hannibal go that way. Keep it at 13 episodes or less.
