Exclusive Premiere: “HANNIBAL” / “AQUARIUS” Promo Reunites Ex-Duo

For fans of NBC’s HANNIBAL, the show’s ability to get away with some seriously visceral violence has set a precedent for what horror shows can do on network TV. In fact, the chilling content of HANNIBAL is even setting the stage for its upcoming coupling with the Charles Manson procedural thriller, AQUARIUS, which will make a petrifying pair this summer. But even beyond the terrifying thematic material that the shows may carry, there’s another connection between HANNIBAL and AQUARIUS that fright fans will recognize, and FANGORIA has the exclusive premiere for NBC’s latest spot for the HANNIBAL/AQUARIUS combo.

For those unfamiliar, here are the synopses for HANNIBAL and AQUARIUS:

HANNIBAL’s third season follows Will Graham as he searches for a missing Hannibal Lecter and Bedelia Du Maurier as new threats to both men arise, including an infamous serial killer who calls himself “The Red Dragon.”

AQUARIUS takes place in 1967, Los Angeles police sergeant Sam Hodiak is helped in a missing persons case by undercover officer Brian Shafe, who behaves like a hippie and fits in with the people being questioned. Unknown to them, their investigation will lead them to Charles Manson.

AQUARIUS debuts on NBC on Thursday, May 28th, while HANNIBAL returns for its third season on June 4th. You can check out the exclusive promo for both shows below…
