‘Hannibal’ Promotes Gillian Anderson to Series Regular for Season 3

Hannibal - Season 1

The Season 2 finale of NBC’s Hannibal left everyone in shock as we saw Hannibal and Bedelia fleeing the country…together! After what went down in Hannibal’s home, we were left in a state of “WTF just happened.” I didn’t know what else to say. Fans were unsure of who survived that incredible finale. I mean, Alana Bloom fell out of a second-story window! How will they ever top that season?

According to TVLine, Gillian Anderson has been promoted to a series regular as Dr. Du Maurier, which means she will have a much bigger role to play.

The third season, which is set to return in early 2015, will find Hannibal and Bedelia in Europe and on the run with Will chasing after them. The premiere will “feel like a pilot for a new series starring Mads Mikkelsen and Gillian Anderson,” teased series creator Bryan Fuller back at Comic-Con.
