Comic-Con 2014: Bryan Fuller Serves Up Delicious ‘Hannibal’ Morsels (Spoilers)

Mads Mikkelsen as Hannibal
Bryan Fuller was quite candid about revealing spoilers for the upcoming season of ‘Hannibal’, stating “We will be talking fairly openly about events in season three and hopefully getting people excited.”

Despite being shot in face by Miriam Lass, the fate of Dr. Frederick Chilton was never verified. Some assumed he was dead, while others argued there was no proof. Fuller confirmed that Raúl Esparza will be returning as Dr. Chilton. He also revealed that Eddie Izzard and Kacey Rohl will be making appearances as Dr. Abel Gideon and Abigail Hobbs, respectively.

A handful of other characters from the tetralogy will be joining the cast for Season 3:

Cordell: Mason Verger’s personal physician from ‘Hannibal’.

Commander Pazzi (Season 3, Episode 2): An Italian law enforcement officer from ‘Hannibal’ who attempted to help kidnap Hannibal for Mason Verger.

Lady Murasaki (Season 3, Episode 3): Hannibal’s aunt and former lover from ‘Hannibal Rising’.

Francis Dolarhyde (Season 3, Episode 8): A serial killer, dubbed “The Tooth Fairy” from ‘Red Dragon’.

I'm doubtful Chilton survived. Not only would it be pretty extraordinary for him to survive a bullet through the face, but they already faked Freddie's death, so it would feel redudant to feign killing a charcter off earlier in the story from novels twice. On the other hand, it would be interesting to see how the relationship between Hannibal and Chilton from The Silence of the Lambs would be tranformed based on their history depicted in the series.
