Exciting news! Gillian will be a regular for the upcoming season of Hannibal; read the article below for details.
Gillian Anderson is to become a series regular on Hannibal.
Bryan Fuller – showrunner on the NBC series – revealed at San Diego Comic Con [July 2014] that Anderson’s new deal is still being worked out.
“We are right now negotiating her contract as a series regular – it’s not closed yet,” he explained. “But she’s been so incredibly supportive of the show.”
Anderson has previously recurred on the series as Bedelia Du Maurier, appearing in nine episodes.
Season two’s finale concluded with Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) escaping justice and boarding a plane with Bedelia.
“The first episode [of the third season] is as if it were a new pilot for a series starring Gillian Anderson and Mads Mikkelsen,” Fuller said.
“These characters are out in the world, living under aliases, so it’s The Talented Mr Lecter!”
Hannibal will return to NBC in 2015.
