Untitled 1 MTV Fandom Awards: Breakout Fandom of the Year

The most deadly serious drama on TV once again has a funny gag reel: Below, EW has the exclusive outtakes from season 2 of NBC’s acclaimed thriller, PLUS details about the season 2 DVD release PLUS season 3 scoop from the show’s Comic-Con panel.

First the gag reel: The scenes include dancing in the morgue, Mads Mikkelsen forgetting how to tie his tie, Gillian Anderson losing her microphone down her shirt, and plenty of crack-ups during the show’s signature terse dining scenes. The clip (which was briefly leaked online earlier this year) is part of Hannibal‘s season 2 home video package, which we can reveal will be released on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on Sept. 16. The disc packages will feature audio commentary with cast and crew on select episodes, a feature-length documentary on the making of episode 205, deleted scenes, and more.

Check out the gag reel below — which is a cut-down of the longer DVD version — which just played at Hannibal‘s Comic-Con panel. As you’ll see, Hannibal is so creepy that even when the cast is messing around, it’s still kinda creepy.

Now for season 3 scoop, direct from Ballroom 20 in San Diego:
– Eddie Izzard will return — despite being killed off: “We are writing a role for Eddie to return as a flashback,” writer-producer Bryan Fuller said.
– Raul Esparza (Dr. Chilton) will be back and plays an important role in the next season despite being shot in the face: “I told Bryan in my next season I expect to have eye path hump and parrot,” said Esparza.
– How will season 3 handle having separated Lecter and Graham? “One of the cool things being a Star Wars fan is when you separate R2-D2 and C-3PO they don’t become less interesting,” Fuller said. “We’re introducing a lot more characters from the novels some that haven’t been in the series yet.” Those characters include: The Florentine detective Rinaldo Pazzi, Hannibal Rising lover Lady Murasaki and, in episode 8, the Red Dragon himself Francis Dolarhyde. Fuller hinted, as you might expect from the inclusion of Pazzi, that Hannibal is headed to Italy.
– The third season will pick up one year after the season 2 finale and will get away from the show’s procedural format: “The entire first half the of season is relatively FBI-light,” Fuller said. “It’s all about the pursuit of Hannibal … the first episode is very much like a pilot for a new series starring Mads Mikkelsen and Gillian Anderson.”
– Hannibal producers are still trying to get the rights from MGM to include Silence of the Lambs protagonist Clarice Starling, but are not giving up. “We’re going to do a full-court press to get those rights,” Fuller said. “I want to complete the story.”
– Fuller revealed his two favorite deaths on the show: “The human cello,” he said. “And I’m particular fan of Michael Pitt cutting off his face and feeding it to the dogs.”

Before we get into what Hannibal showrunner Bryan Fuller said about the show’s upcoming third season at Comic-Con, we should explicitly point out that he reveals some SPOILERS about it. We won’t make a vague reference to what he spoils, because that itself would be a spoiler, but if you absolutely don’t want to know anything about what’s going to happen on Hannibal, stop reading now. Also, why did you click on this article, given its headline?

Now that the people who don’t realize Hannibal is a prequel have left—seriously, we already know almost everything that’s going to happen anyway—we can get down to it. For starters, season three will pick up a year after the bloodbath that ended season two, in which nearly every main character was either left dying on the floor or happily escaping the country with Gillian Anderson. This comes via Vox’s liveblog of the panel, which explains that the jump in time is being used to make it a littler harder to figure out who survived. Also, the FBI apparently will only play into one episode out of the first seven, with Fuller choosing to step away from the show’s “creative murderer of the week” structure for stories about Hannibal’s escape and the people who are trying to catch him.

Vox reports that a number of characters from the books will pop up, including Lady Murasaki and Commander Pazzi. Francis Dolarhyde will be the season’s “big bad,” indicating that—at the very least—some chunks of season three are going to start adapting events that happen in the Red Dragon novel. And speaking of characters popping up, Fuller confirmed that Raul Esparza’s Dr. Chilton did survive being shot in the face during season two, and that he would continue to play a part in the show for its next two seasons.

Fuller says Kacey Rohl’s Abigail Hobbes will make another appearance, but he didn’t explain whether that meant she was still alive or if she’ll be in a flashback/dream sequence. He also says he’s working on a behind-the-scenes book about the art of Hannibal, which will be a nice thing to leave on your coffee table if you ever have guests who love looking at grisly murders.
