Sink Your Teeth Into ‘Hannibal for Dinner’ by Kyle Moody, Ph.D and Nicholas Yanes, Ph.D


Almost six years ago, NBC’s psychological drama Hannibal aired its final episode (for now…), but the love Fannibals hold for the series is anything but finished. Through the show’s run and still today, it has inspired two books, gorgeous fanart, and a fierce determination to renew the show for another season.

Adding to the mix is a new book about the show edited by Doctors Kyle Moody and Nicholas Yane. Titled Hannibal for Dinner: Essays on America’s Favorite Cannibal on Television, this latest book brings together a collection of academic articles and interviews diving into the legacy of Hannibal. The book explores the franchise, the bold and creative risks it took, its evolution, and more.

The interviews include Tom de Ville (writer for Lexx, Urban Gothic, and Lucky Man), Nick Antoscao (writer and creator of The Act, Channel Zero, and Brand New Cherry Flavor), and Hannibal‘s very own executive producer Martha DeLaurentiis, who has also produced Red Dragon, Hannibal Rising, and more.

Hannibal ran for three seasons from 2013-2015 on NBC. Based on the characters created by Thomas Harris, the show followed the budding and fascinating relationship between FBI profiler Will Graham and Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a serial killer hiding in plain sight. The show is currently available to stream on Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Prime.

Hannibal for Dinner is available to purchase here.
