"Chilton’s like a weeble wobble. You shoot him in the face, and he just comes right back. … I told Bryan I expect him next season to have an eyepatch, a hump, and a parrot," Esparza says of his character. It’s in response to Ross pointing out that people on this show don’t seem to die unless they are eaten.
Hannibal creator Bryan Fuller scared up some serious scoop at Comic-Con last night regarding Hannibal Season 3 and what fans can expect next year from this wildly underrated NBC drama. For starters, the show will jump ahead one full year from events that concluded Hannibal Season 2. It will also change up its format a bit in the process.
“The entire first half the of season is relatively FBI-light,” Fuller said. “It’s all about the pursuit of Hannibal… The first episode is very much like a pilot for a new series starring Mads Mikkelsen and Gillian Anderson.”
As for the biggest surprise, Fuller said Raúl Esparza (who plays presumed dead Frederick Chilton) will actually “huge part of Season 3.”
“I can’t believe how much people fell in love with Chilton this season,” Esparza told the crowd. “I love playing the part because he’s a total douchebag.”
