‘Hannibal’ Returns to NBC on Feb. 28

'Silence of the Lambs' prequel gets vote of confidence from Peacock

More pieces of NBC’s post-Olympics midseason schedule are falling into place. The Peacock has set the second-season premiere of “Hannibal” for Feb. 28 in the Friday 10 p.m. slot following “Grimm.”

In its initial outing last spring, the Bryan Fuller-steered prequel to the “Silence of the Lambs” franchise delivered weak ratings but generated enough online and critical buzz to convince NBC to give it a second 13-episode order.

“Bryan and his team are running on all creative cylinders once again and have delivered episodes full of intrigue, scares and surprises,” said NBC Entertainment prexy Jennifer Salke. “The show continues to astound us with its incredible aesthetic beauty and its amazingly talented cast.”

Series from Gaumont Intl. TV stars Mads Mikkelsen as Hannibal Lecter and Hugh Dancy as criminal profiler Will Graham.
