Bryan Fuller’s dark and delicious Hannibal has been renewed for a second season of 13 episodes by NBC.

The series, starring Mads Mikkelsen, Hugh Dancy, Caroline Dhavernas and Laurence Fishburne, has enjoyed excellent reviews but unspectacular ratings. The news that NBC has given it a second season is a welcome relief for those of us anxiously waiting to see where they would land.

Hannibal is currently airing on Sky Living on Tuesdays at 10pm.
