We haven't seen much of NBC's darkly delicious Bryan Fuller drama, 'Hannibal,' as its season 2 prepares for an earlier debut in 2014, but our first delectable appetizer has now arrived. Prepare for the second course, as Mads Mikkelsen's Hannibal Lecter readies his latest dish in the first promo for 'Hannibal' season 2!

While poor Will remains locked away for crimes he didn't commit, NBC's first 'Hannibal' season 2 spot shows the good doctor is at work artfully preparing his latest meal with all the disturbing ingredients we've come to expect from the Bryan Fuller series. Will clearly seemed to be catching on to his mentor's dark side by the end of season 1 finale "Savoureux," though we doubt if he knew Lecter's palate extended quite as far as glimpsed here.

Elsewhere, series creator Bryan Fuller has confirmed Raul Esparza’s return to ‘Hannibal’ season 2 as Dr. Frederick Chilton, while ‘X-Files‘ vet Gillian Anderson will reprise her role as Hannibal’s own therapist Dr. Bedelia Du Maurier, as will Eddie Izzard as Dr. Abel Gideon. Along with confirmed season 2 roles for ‘Sex and the City’ vet Cynthia Nixon and ‘Homeland‘ player Martin Donovan, Fuller recently revealed that two major literary characters of Thomas Harris' novels would be popping up in the second season, potentially providing further menace down the line.

Be on your best table manners and take a taste of 'Hannibal' season 2 with the first appetizing teaser above! Will you see what the good doctor cooks up for his February 28 premiere? And as an added bonus, check out this slick new 'Hannibal' season 2 key art!
