Official “Hannibal” Season 2 Trailer: Sick, Dark, and Awesome As Ever

Oh. My. God, this trailer.

Were I not already flailing in excitement for Hannibal‘s second season, this two-minute series of drama-laden, gruesome, game-changing clips would definitely get me there. Set to a chilling cover of “Stand By Me,” the trailer gives us glimpses of Will Graham (Hugh Dancy) in the Baltimore State Hospital for the Criminally Insane, as Dr. Alana Bloom (Caroline Dhavernas) and Special Agent Jack Crawford (Laurence Fishburne) try to come to terms with the crimes Will is being accused of committing. The illustrious Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) also makes an appearance in a few… shall we say shocking scenes.

Check the season two trailer out for yourself, and tune in February 28th on NBC for the season premiere:
