Explores the early relationship between the renowned psychiatrist and his patient, a young FBI criminal profiler, who is haunted by his ability to empathize with serial killers.
This series exists in the same fictional universe as other Bryan Fuller series Wonderfalls (2004), Pushing Daisies (2007) and Mockingbird Lane (2012). The character Gretchen Speck (Chelan Simmons) from episode 1.2, Hannibal: Amuse-Bouche (2013), also appears in two episodes of "Wonderfalls". Also in "Wonderfalls" is the character Marianne Marie Beatle, who appears in an episode of "Pushing Daisies" and in "Mockingbird Lane".
This is my design.
The extensive, severe winter settings reveal the Toronto filming sites, rather than represent the Baltimore dramatic setting. Baltimore winters are mild, and snow rarely accumulates on the ground for more than a few days at a time. Yet snow covered landscapes and large accumulations of snow on the streets are common in the series, and there is snowfall to be seen through the window of Hannibal's dining room during nearly every meal.
US TV network versions aired censored versions of some episodes (removing, for example, rear nudity, paintings showing nude figures and some scenes of violence) with a TV-14 rating. These cut versions were released on Blu-ray in the UK, many of which received the more appropriate 18 rating from the BBFC. However, the American Blu-ray editions of the affected episodes are unrated and billed as Producer's Cuts, which restore the previously censored footage.
