You guys, the time has finally come. Hannibal is back!

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!

The third season finds 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.

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait!

The season 3 premiere of Hannibal airs Thursday, June 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.

The official synopsis for “Antipasto”:

HANNIBAL IS ON THE RUN – EDDIE IZZARD AND ZACHARY QUINTO GUEST STAR — Having successfully escaped FBI capture, Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) is moving through the European landscape, with Bedelia Du Maurier (Gillian Anderson) in tow. But Dr. Lecter’s old habits and opulent tastes are still on display as he settles into a new identity and life in Florence, Italy, working at the Palazzo Capponi museum. Glimpses into the past help inform his relationship with Bedelia, a pairing not clearly defined as friend or foe. Tom Wisdom and Jeremy Crutchley also guest star.
