More tantalising new details have emerged from Hannibal Season 3, as Gillian Anderson’s Dr Bedelia Du Maurier has been given a patient.

EW reports that Zachary Quinto (Star Trek, American Horror Story) has been cast in the show’s third season and will appear in at least one episode.

There’s no more details at the moment beyond the fact that he’s playing her patient, but is it unreasonable to guess that he might be playing the patient who tried to kill her, allowing Hannibal (Mads Mikkelsen) to come to her aid?

Quinto and Bryan Fuller previously worked together on Heroes.

Hannibal returns to NBC this summer and to Sky Living in the UK (hopefully) shortly afterwards. Keep up with the latest genre news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
